14 is too many syllables

There is no “deep green shade” white balance setting on my camera. There is no “how it really looks” setting either.

Noah, if you find my work painful to look at, then I encourage you to please look away.

There is no “real” color. That is the whole point.

in real life many times I would say the “real” color is closer to the last picture.

Although it can be fun to play around with different light sources, saturation, white balance, etc. some of your pictures are just painful to look at from a identification perspective. They are really good artsy shots though.

Thanks for that explanation, I understand what you are saying about colour and light.
I should have worded my questions differently by starting with, “what light sources did you use to get the different effects?” and secondly, “which image best represents what you saw with your eyes in the natural light?”
I also understand that what you see with your eyes is not necessarily exactly what I would see with my eyes but the differences are probably not as great as what can be seen in your first two images using the different light sources and exposure times.

You have answered those questions, thanks:)

playing with the color options of a digital camera.
He was almost blind but that didn’t stop him and the “true color” of the haystacks was not of great concern to him.
However, I like the first photo and think it may represent the “true color” under idealized conditions.

Hey Michael. The color in the first photo is accurate for a long exposure in deep shade. The hot pink of the magnolia cone is also accurate for that lighting situation.

The second photo is illuminated with a blue spectrum diode flood light. The color is accurate for that lighting condition. Color is not a property that adheres in an object; color is a function of reflected light interacting with the human eye and nerves.

What color are the hay stacks?

Nice observation,

Which image represents the colour more accurately?
The first one looks orange, the second one looks yellow.
