Hello;
I downloaded the images from my card into Photos, then into DoX and then Luminar and got the same faded results w each
I know that at the beginning of the day, I like to keep things simple.
I set the camera setting on Autumn leaves because it was that kind of day and didn't bother the rest of the day because the photos looked fine in the EVF and display.
I can tell you I will make sure from now on the ev will be set @ 0.0

but it was a spectacular day that will stay w me forever.    
thanks guys for all the help and expertise. I appreciate it very much    
All the Best _____Joe

Hi Joe
I can't help feeling that using Autumn leaves may be part of the problem.
I have never used any of these settings.
I do know that underexposing a little can result in richer colours.
I do this with sky’s in particular and autumn leaves. I usually reduce the exposure on landscapes enough so that the clouds have lots of detail and the sky looks a deep blue rather than a pale blue.
I suspect that the autumn leaves setting is trying for a similar result ending in underexposed photos.
Regards Ross

Well, I can hardly imagine. Boost saturation yes, making colors warmer yes, but underexpose by about 1.5 stops? And if that would be true, why then is the supposedly beneficial effect reversed on the camera monitor?

You could simply validate this theory by making an image with the camera set on Autumn Leaves, then again in Normal, while keeping all other settings the same. See what difference that gives.

I don't remember putting the EV to -1.3. ________Coast


Hmmm, I wonder if this is a case of classic inadvertent jogging of the dial on the back of the camera. I'm not sure exactly how EV is set on the A6500, but I think the rear dial is involved?

I've had the NEX-7, A7, and A7 III and I've been capable of making adjustments on that dial just through hanging the camera over my right shoulder. Usually it is ISO (NEX-7 and A7) but on the A7 III I can move the drive mode setting to e.g. Continuous WB bracketing. Harmless but not helpful! Might be worth checking on your camera?
Mr Stanbury;
I've gone back over my photos and that -1.3 EV pops up more than it should but at no time w the devastating affects of these Grand Canyon photos. I suspect your diagnosis is correct, maybe w that particular setting, perhaps we have found the problem?
thank you Coast
