What do you do when you have to shoot against a misty drab sky when your camera has a red-stained sensor?

Beat the ever loving tar out of it in post.

HDR'ed, Topazed, AND Ortonized.

While I like the photo - to be honest I had to look twice to make sure it was a 'real' scene and not an extremely well photographed miniature. The slight over saturation of the red roofs and nearly identical shade on the picnic tables for all the world look like it came from the artist's same paint bottle.

This is the 'red-stained' as in 'red pencil eraser' camera? If so, you have done some very nice post-processing work.

Can you elaborate on 'red-stained' as in 'red pencil eraser, did he sweat blood trying to clean it, spill ketchup on it, or is this some jargon I'm not aware of?

Thanks.

O/k, now I understand, I have both a 4 year old and a 2 year old grandsons, and have every sympathy!

Its been a very rewarding learning experience working with the camera. Being forced to stay wide and high-key/overexposed to avoid the worst of the yargh makes for a very limited kind of scope to play with.

Lenses I usually ignored or barely touched are finding new life simply because they work best in hiding the damage.

Now that the summer is done and we're headed towards that short gap before the holidays hit, I might see about either getting the camera sent in to get fixed, figuring out how to properly get rid of that rubber stain, or possibly seeing about converting the thing to IR (hey, when life deals you lemons...).

Its definitely made me get more abstract for lack of a better term in how I shoot now. Its less 'shoot and decide later what to do with it' as it is 'decide what I'm going to do, THEN shoot".

Sometimes, the pinkish cast actually helps as well.
