Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera
I'm just starting to get into photography and I have a Nikon D70. The other day I was out taking pictures at a golf course that was in really good condition. When I got home and looked at the pictures I noticed the grass wasn't as stellar green as it was when I was on the course. Sure easy PS fix but I like taking natural pictures with out modifying them. I was taking the pictures in manual mode. Light meter balanced, ISO of 200 and a shutter speed of 100. I like taking pictures in manual mode but I noticed in the manual the "nature" program mode on the camera will enhance the outdoor colors. Should I shoot in a mode like this or what can I do to make the color turn out better in my pictures shooting manually. Thanks.

I don't think there is really any such thing as a 100% "natural picture". What your eyes see and what film or a sensor "see" are not the same. All photos are manipulated to some degree whether it be from the type of film or the digital "modes" you use. If you would have shot with a film such as Velvia, the greens may have been more "stellar" or maybe too green. There are a number of settings you can use to get the results more to your liking with a D70, or shoot NEF and post process to your liking. Your exposure will make a difference so you may want to bracket.
