Although I am experiencing this with the D7000 I have seen other Nikons I owned do the same thing. Its early morning, the sky outside is dark purple color, its kind of dark and in the harbor a ship has its lights on, its a nice scene. I shoot with the D7000, the image I get looks like the camera was attempting to create a daylight image. The image was shot in program mode, I set just about everything in the menu to factory default. My wife shoots the same scene with her Sony and the image she gets looks exactly like what the scene looked like, quite dark with deep purple sky and the scene looks natural. My image looks like it was taken in daylight, as if the camera was attempting to correct the image to make it look like a daylight shot. What am I doing wrong? She leaves her Sony set at factory default mode and shoots everything in program mode.
