The same photo but the first is with the soft focus filter effect on the K200D. In the second the saturation is slightly reduced.








Which do you prefer - do you like either?

I prefer number 2 as I do not like soft focus in close up shots.
The older I get the faster I was.

I much prefer the first one and the dreamy quality, interesting that the camera thought it was shooting a scene lit by fluorescent light. Did you do anything in PP to enhance the softness?

The first one is straight out the camera after adding the soft filter effect so no extra PP. The second is from the RAW file and I fiddled with the colours a bit, reducing saturation and fine tuning WB to lessen the green. It was taken at sunset.

Thanks for the comments,
Richard.
