Bryan Posted December 31, 2014 Share Posted December 31, 2014 I'm not sure if this is a real issue, but I've noticed that vivid colours, particularly reds, over saturate on images taken with a Sony NEX. Today I spotted a tree with impossibly bright red berries, from a distance it looked like Holly in overdrive. Getting close up I saw that it was blossoming with knitted red poppies, and situated next to the local war memorial. I took some shots and followed my normal practice of shooting in raw, converting to TIFF in LR and processing in PS. The levels layer showed over exposed highlights and under exposed shadows, vertical lines to the extreme left and right of the graph. Looking at the actual pixels view the poppies looked a tad fuzzy, while the supporting (green) string was razor sharp. I used a saturation layer to very slightly reduce the intensity of the reds and this brought everything back within the range of the levels layer. I couldn't see any difference in terms of the fuzziness of the image. Do I need to be concerned about this, is over saturation a cause for QC failure?
