There's been some questions

About the colors. See my camera has a couple settings one's for scenery, which I've found makes everything bluer. So the picture up top's on "normal" and the one below it is on the "scenery" setting. I'm not sure which one I prefer, and I'm curious which one you prefer.

Also, as an aside, what do you think about the manipulation, through filter or digital means, or otherwise, of images. Sometimes it strikes me as cheating, although I know many photographers and artists use it often.

I fiddle with my photos in photoshop when I'm going to print them and put them on my wall. I usually don't bother if I'm just going to post them on Flickr. I don't see anything wrong with it, but I do admire those "natural light only" types. I guess I just view it as part of the art form?

The scenery mode one is more appealing. The exposure curve seems to be different... like there's more middle-value detail visible. Unless it's something like a polarizing filter that actually changes what's being recorded, I still prefer to do my manipulations in photoshop.

If you don't mind, what kind of camera are you using? The image quality is very nice.

A Nikon Coolpix 5200. I think I'm committed to Nikon for life.
