I suspect that (however you do the white balance), this scene wouldn't have a vast range of colours that are complementary... Brown stone, green leaves and blue sky are not particularly likely to give a great result. Therefore, this was always likely to make for a better mono than colour shot, I suspect. But then, I like black-and-white!

Hi Pamela, Thank you so much for your advice. I am going to try the TV mode and use the higher shutter speed and ISO. I got my manual out and have adjusted the settings as you suggested. I'm on a whole new learning curve. I also checked out the link you gave me ... the photos are amazing. With my little camera I don't think I can produce such fantastic results, but I'm certainly going to try and make sure that the technique is right.
