A. B.

Two attempts at a night time view of Tower Bridge using a Casio Exilim EX Z4. The only difference (apart from where I was standing) is the white balance – one is set for natural light, the other is set for tungsten lighting. I’m not saying which until we get past this little poll, and to the other side of a cut tag…

A is natural light, B is using the settings for tungsten lighting.

Of course you can guess which is which based on my previous posting…

    And some of us knew which was which from our own experiments with white balance 🙂

    Picture A is ‘warmer’, and I prefer the way that looks.
    One nice thing about shooting in RAW mode on my DSLR is that there is a utility which lets me modify colour balance etc after the fact, so I can try how a picture looks with different settings. Quite nifty. I must post something on LJ about it later.

    I can’t answer your poll, because I like them both for different reasons…

    I just like the golden color of the first one. But they both have their merits.

    Concur with the previous commenters – I like them both, for different reasons.

    I like them both, and which one I like “best” would depend on my mood. Picture A looks warm and welcoming, and Picture B looks austere and formal.

    B seems clearer. The sepia-like tone of A is lovely … but one could achieve that with B and a little adjustment.

    I liked them both, but chose B because I felt the black sky was more realistic.
