Water puppets

Taken at the same place as the classic kitchen, this is a shot of the water puppets used in a traditional water puppet theatre. White balance here was quite tricky -- the default Auto1 white balance setting on the D7000 produced a slightly bluish shot, not what I was seeing at all. After fooling around with the settings, I found that the new Auto2 white balance (which is biased slightly towards warmer settings) produced the most pleasing result. I love the colour and lighting of this shot, although the little white sign really spoils it a bit. Nikon D7000, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
