The funny thing is that we're used to seeing photos that are highly
saturated, where nature really isn't all that much...

Traditional color films always 'interpret' the colors, since
obviously, the dye used is physically distinct from the
photo-sensitive layers (the same in printing)

Digital sensors are literally measuring the energy of the photons
passing the shutter, thus, if all else is equal (a proper exposure
being primary), one would expect a highly accurate recording of the
light and color present at the moment of exposure...

The camera's internal processing changes this data before you have a
chance to evaluate, which is why I generally leave sharpening and
contrast at 0.

I often adjust levels in photoshop afterward, and sometimes sharpen
as well, depending. And then there's creative interpretation, but
that's a different story altogether...

Of course, all this has little to do with the topic of this thread
;-)

Ciao

Peter
