    What is it?! I have been trying to get good pictures of my EE eggs, and they always come out washed out or off color...for some reason, my cellphone camera actually captured a good color image of one, and I have NO idea how to replicate it, or how I even did that in the first place! [​IMG]

    Don't use flash, compare to white or green eggs, try either flesh color or gray backgrounds, best to do them in cloudy or semi-sunny areas, or well lit indoors.

    I can imagine how it would be hard to get a photo of a blue egg.
