Project 30 - Colour control

Altering colours by changing the exposure is a real revelation. I'd appreciated that colour was a variant of saturation, hue and lightness and this project shows the difference between overexposing by one stop (at f5.6 1/60) through increments of a third of a stop to the recommended exposure (f5.6 1/200) and then through to underexposure by one stop (at f/1320). Although the light bouncing off the paintwork is a bit of a distraction, it's clear to see the effect is has on changing the colour from light blue to dark.
