I've been getting pictures with too bright, washed out features and knew there had to be a way to correct this.
You likely need to set the "white balance" from "auto" to "outdoor" or lower the level of white balance if you have such an adjustment.
It took me over a year to figure out what the different adjustments actually did. I think it was cause Southerners are so slow. I still don't completly understand what some of the adjustments do. You see, the Sony manual was written in Japan and uses proper English in a rather terse manner. That alone is difficult enough for us slow folks.
