probably not. I suggest you try them all out with different settings.
Also try and only have one source of light- that is- either sunlight/daylight, or only tungsten, or only fluorescent. If you mix them up it will skew the white balance.
James,

Thank you for the time and efford. I will try them all out under the same light condition and see what gives.

Regards

Tony

Hull finished

Today I have finished work on the hull. I have added the various stowage boxes, pioneer tools and jerrycan racks. I have also tried to take better pics as Mr. Tainton suggested. So if he sees these pics please let me know if they are any better.









Note that the jerrycans are removable.

Greetz

Nice job- I see you glued all the tools down- I hope you don't have too much trouble reaching all the areas with a brush

As for the pics- can I ask what the light source and white balance settings were? (edit- I just looked at the camera data (EXIF) in PS and the white balance was set at Cloudy Weather? What was the light source?)
they are nicely focused but with the purple on the white pages- I think the white balance setting is not the best?
Here is one pic of yours that I tweaked very quickly in Photoshop, Auto adjusting the Levels, Colour, and then some Hue adjustment and took out some of the saturation.
It's by no means perfect!- just a quick adjustment to to show what can be done post production.
One thing to try also , maybe get a bigger piece of background paper.

James,

Indeed the setting was cloudy weather. As for the tools, they are just touched with glue and can be easely removed. I will see if I can find a bigger background paper and maybe another color. Thanks for the efford and explaination.

Tony
