Americo there is a fairly heavy color cast in the image above (original CA mountain panoramic). I take it you were touring CA and S.F. recently? Hope you had a nice trip.
Thank you for the advice on the color cast thing, something I will look up ASAP Yes, we went on vacation here and there and stupid me didn't bring a tripod, actually, I have not bought one yet! Also I tried my best not to point and shot, but as time was allotted, I ended up doing so! I don't have any filters yet, so my next move would be to invest in those as well. I still need a light meter, I think, and hopefully it will help? I do really try my best, but my overzealousness kinda gets me
