This is my other Golden in the same setting. I didnít see the color casts that I did with Baxter but as always I appreciate the comments and Mods as I learn something from every one of them.
These were shot as raw files and basic edits in Canonís DPP software then further edits in PhotoScape.

This is a beautiful shot. Excellent image quality at such a high ISO.

The mod is minor, slightly less exposure, small rotation CCW and crop.

Im sure you already know than when in Manual mode the exposure compensation has no effect?

Hi Willie, I agree with you rotating and crop and also the exposure mods, Thanks!

I had to double check this but on the Canon RP, when in Manual mode, the exposure compensation setting changes the ISO but leaves the F/Stop and Shutter Speed unchanged. The histograms was shifting so I assumed that was the case and verified this with the camera just now. Not it sure if this is only because the new RP lenses have a third control ring which is configurable and I have mine set to change the Exposure Compensation. With the EF Lenses my adaptor also has the control ring.

I wonder if the difference in colour is because the dog is a different colour, and you were using autor white balance?

An important point iwth camera controls is to get on top of them: normally, exposure compensation simply doesn't work in Manual exposure mode. You achieve changes in exposure by altering shutter speed, aperture or ISO directly.

I would imagine that there's an option in the menus to show setting effects in the viewfinder, so that you have a strong indication of exposure in what you see. ('Show setting effects' is Sony nomenclature: Canon may well call it soemthign else, but it is one of the big advantages of EVF cameras that you can see how it will look, in terms of colour, special effects like monochrome, and exposure. It's only a problem using flash, which upsets the applecart a bit!)

If you have auto ISO set, you are not on manual! ISO should be on a fixed setting for manual or you are not getting a fully controlled image. It is a pleasant shot, but you have some burn out in highlights meaning over exposure.
