Very helpful, again. One more question: The white balance which I'll set from a white sheet, should be done under sunlight or even the tubelight would do or it doesn't matter?

comment How to reduce the effect of bright day light in the photographs?
A news: today morning I was wearing orange coloured clothes and I pointed my camera to my clothes and let it grab the white balance through the setting "custom white balance". Then I took the picture of a sofa lying in shade in the room, the tinge in the photo turned out to be green :) and then I changed the custom white balance to black and the then the same photograph had a greyish shade :) I am yet to figure out which light gives which shade.

OMG, :banghead: All this I was thinking that f22 would have blurred the background :mad: My lowest f is 3.1.

You mean a tripod? I don't have a tripod yet. BTW, f8.0 is too less for blurring the background? Is it? I should have had f22, if possible?

Very helpful comment, Imre. :hattip: The maximum f I have is 8.0. Next thing you mentioned is zooming from further away, actually the problem was that I and the water were on same platform. So, if I moved away farther, I am not sure if reflection would have been visible? Does that make sense?

Offtopic: Is this photograph worth anything?

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.
