Good shot! I'm glad you pointed out the pigeons, they really add another humourous element to the composition :-)

Technically you have a problem with the sky, and I don't honestly think it's to do with white balance - unless the colours changed dramatically when you ran AutoLevels? Would you mind posting a version of the original with only resizing as a Workshop?

Taking shots against a bright sky is always a problem, and digital doesn't have the dynamic range of the print film you're used to... Best option is to shoot at 90 to the sun, ideally with a polarising filter.

Also make use of that histogram - if you have overexposed sections use your exposure compensation and reshoot! If you're still having problems think about turning down the contrast on the camera - you should be able to bring it back up using Photoshop :-)

Default To AdrianW: Thanks again!

Thanks again for the help in your critique and in your emails.

I promise to post the original tomorrow, as I have already posted my limit for workshops today. The white sky is the same in the original, and I don't think that AutoLevels effected the photo.

Anyways...I'll show you tomorrow so you can see. Learnig about teh white balance and the use of the histogram will take a lot of practice I guess!

Thanks again Adrian. You have been a great help!

As with any new tool it'll always take a while to take full advantage of it :-)

Glad to help, and if you have any more questions just ask!
