Sailor delight

Sunday night. The photo didn't turn out the way I saw it. The sun was really red.

Red sky in morning
Sailor take warning
Red sky at night
Sailor delight

try setting your white balance to Daylight. then the camera will behave like standard film, and you'll get all the colors you're expecting. what happened here is the auto white balancing saw all the red and tried to "correct" for it, thus washing out all your colors.

Those are often difficult shots - especially with digital.

Thanks Jason for the tip.
