    Hi, do you guys know why the sky turned out so dark grey? (It was actually a very light blue today).

    I used:

    Canon 300D + 75 - 300 III USM
    Av Mode
    Aperture f/8
    Exposure -0.3
    Adobe RGB
    Large Fine JPEG

    Below is the original with no editing except for cropping:

    Just underexposed it appears. Try not using -0.3 on the exposure compensation.

    If you shoot RAW that is an easy fix... Same happened to me when tried the -0.3 came out underexposed.... but it's easy to fix in RAW with no loss of quality.

          Well, yeah, I know that I can fix it in Photoshop.

          But I wanted to know what I did wrong when shooting the photo, to prevent making the same mistake again.

          I guess I'll try no -0.3 next time.

              Easy test: on a day with nice blue sky, pick up your camera and watch thru the viewfinder. Make a 360 turn and keep looking thru the viefinder. Result: watch the blue sky changing colors from the bluest blue over grey to light grey (almost white) and back to blue. Even better: take at least some 8-10 pics that way and look at the results at home.

              It depends on the relative position of the sun, compared to your foto-position and then of course also on meteorological things, like humidity for example.

                Gerardo, so it wasn't really the fault of any settings?

                Mike, sorry.

                  Let's put it that way: these things happen, but you can correct this with different white balance settings on a digital camera. I tend not to worry too much about it, as white balance can easily be corrected afterwards on the PC. I keep an eye to correct exposure, that's all.
