For whatever reason — perhaps it was the angle of the full sun, the festive outfits, or the choice of the camera — the photos around Chamundeshwari Temple came out extra colorful. So much so that I’m going to feature a group of them over the next several days.

The light has a big impact on color. That’s why a photograph made with a strong flash often pops with color. While the soft natural light has a more subdued muted look.

The choice of the camera often affects the color too, even when shot in RAW. I usually prefer the Olympus color over Canon and especially my more capable micro 4/3 cameras over the Canon G7X Mark II. The G7X has a decent 1-inch sensor, but it still doesn’t seem to produce the same vivid colors, even with similar post-processing.

Finally, the outfits, particularly worn by the women, were extra colorful. Perhaps they were wearing their more exquisite clothing when visiting the temple. That coupled with the fruits and flowers made for a technicolor explosion.
