Offtopic: Is this photograph worth anything?

comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
Actually the default white balance known as AWB gives me a blue tinge on my photographs always, so I don't prefer to use it. And I don't understand the meaning of "shadows are colder".

Indeed your answer now is more helpful than before ;) I'll take time to look through the links.

Nice, so what white balance setting should be preferred in sunlight? How should I edit this now?

Thanks for the response, I'll have to Google out, the meanings of "polarizing filter". what did you mean by "try setting custom white balance with a gray card or a sheet of white paper.". Please explain.

comment What settings should be kept in mind while shooting a jpeg photo in order for it to be edited later on?
I mean some one below has recommended to set them to the minimum. Is that a good idea?

Now I don't remember what where the default settings for contrast, sharpness, RGB, skin tone etc. :(

Thanks Matt, by "Neutral/faithful colour saturation" you mean medium colour saturation? And since I never knew what the hell "sharpning" was used for, I kept it to the highest :rolleyes:. I haven't yet figured out how to set the "custom white balance", but I will, soon.

Thanks Lambert, that is a good reminder. The files are saved by default as Jpg by the camera. I'll look up what is "TIFF" :) Thanks to @JamWheel too.

And w.r.t the "white balance", I remembered just now that the white balance when kept to default, produces a blue tinge on the photographs.

I don't know what is a "picture mode". Sorry for sounding dumb, but I am a newbie w.r.t cameras.

You also said "more significant shifts in saturation can often enhance compression artifacts" For "saturation", I have 5 levels, also I have 5 levels for "contrast", "red/blue/green", "skin tone", "sharpness". So, what level should I keep a default or you meant something else?

You said "You might want to choose the best white balance setting in your camera," Do you mean to say that white balance should be selected based on the scene or should I keep it a constant default?

Thanks Jrista and apologies for the delayed response. Was too busy. I have found that compression can be set to either Fine or Normal. I ve set it to fine. You said "preserve as much detail and color accuracy as you can". What kind of setting is responsible for that?
