Was reviewing some old pics and looked at a set from early 2008. Was a trip to Hawaii. At the time I was an avid reader of Ken Rockwell's site. I followed his advice and shot in JPEG. Boosted the color saturation as well. For this trip I had a Nikon D300 and 18-200 lens. All of the pics are over-saturated for my current tastes. What's more, several pics were ruined because they were shot as JPEGs and not as RAW. At the time I trusted the white histogram on the LED display. I didn't realize that the white histogram on Nikons is *heavily* weighted to the green channel histogram. For many pics, this isn't an issue. It *doesn't* work when the subject is largely red, as in this example. A RAW image would have preserved some of the detail in the red channel, but because this was shot as JPEG the red channel is blown and there isn't any detail in the file to recover. At the time I liked this composition, though in hindsight it is a reflection of me still having a lot to learn. Regardless, the shot is a complete miss both because the exposure meter on the D300 was fooled (exposing for the green channel) and because it was shot as a JPEG and not as RAW. Boosting the saturation at the time of capture didn't help either and made a bad situation much worse.
