    You can alos use the level tool. Use the grey pipette and point it on a surface that should be either black, white or neutral grey. Then the levels for each RGB color will be accepted. You can also manually correct the levels for ech color indivdually using the levels funtion. (adjustment layer)

    You can practice by re-editing some shots you've already taken in your personal collection. That's what I would do.

    for exposure: Image/Adjustments/Levels

    for color: Image/Adjustments/Color Balance This will help you remove or change the coloring in the highlights, midlevels and shadows.

    for sharpening: Filters/Unsharp Mask 500% at .2 pixels

    I am using PSE in Dutch, I am not too familiar with the exact English terms used in the programme. I think one tool to try is called color cast, but you can also ad some color in high, mid or shadow tones (red, blue green).

    Yeah, I seriously considered going Canon...but if I was going to it would have been the 20D...and it was just too expensive for me at 16. The 350D just seemed so small in my hands and I didn't think I would be able to hold it very well. The D70 and the 20D felt about the same, but when I bought the D70, my pocket felt a little heavier than it would have if I would have bought the 20D

    I don't know, I think I may upgrade later to the D200, but I'm not entirely sure just yet...

    The first option is to shoot RAW and fix it in postprocessing, the other is more complicated.

    I presume you are using auto white balance. Then you should fine tune the AWB settings. From page 48 onwards in your manual (if you are using a D70 and not a D70s) you will find infos about your WB settings. On page 50+51 you will find how to finetune your settings. If using AWB a finetuning to AWB -1 (or -2 depending on lense) should fix your problem. You have to try which setting works best for your kit though. The finetuning can either be done in the menue of your camera or by pressing WB and using the front dial.
    Thanks Stefan! I set it and I'll see how it comes out next time I'm out at the airport

    Yeah that's classic Nikon, I know, I'm a D50 user. The good thing is that you can fix it in PS, you just have to train your eye to see it.

    This is how I currently fix the problem, it works if you can find the right spots...

    Here's one of my more Blue shots....this was before I had an eye for the blue tint...

    I guess you just have to know how to adjust your colors.

    I'm a Canon user, but go spotting with a D70 user all the time. The D70 produces pictures that are a little cool (usually leaning more towards blueish).....conversely the 20D seems to produce shots that lean towards the warmer side of the spectrum.

    That being said, your pictures definetly have a more noticable blue/green tint than I've seen most of the time....I've also read a little that some Nikkor lenses (especially the 18-70) have caused blue/green tint in the pictures. I couldnt' really tell you any more about it because I didn't look too in depth at it because I'm not a Nikon user.

    I've heard about this before, but have never experienced it with my own D70. As I can see you're using the same lens as I do, so that cannot be the problem. Probably gotta ask Stefan Kuhn aka seahawk, I think he's an experienced Nikonian
