Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Sunday, April 22, 2018

I was a bit worried last week when I noticed the colour bleached effect on greens with photos taken on my new Acer Liquid. I was, quite honestly, puzzled by the lack of colour depth. All other colours were STUNNING and crisp. But the greens were drained. I fussed with settings, tried to over ride the white balance etc but no luck. Then I fell back on the tried and true - I rebooted the phone and checked for any updates. Sure enough there was one for the phone that I had missed. I slapped that in and the green balance is perfect:

Now that I have that straightened out, I feel much more confident in heading out to take photos. I must admit, the lack of greens irritated me over the weekend.  You can see a few other shots I took today over on my Memoirs post - the great aphid battle of 2016 I grabbed them on the fly this afternoon. Compare the difference with previous photos here Lillies in bloom - testing the Acer Liquid phone camera.

Better ones to come ... promise. But work first; play later.
