Taken with a Nikon P900 near the West coast of Florida on a nice sunny day with the sun behind my left shoulder at 9:15 am on 12/2/17. ISO 400, 35mm (film equivalent), f8, 1/40, spot meter, auto white balance, set on Manual with AF using a tripod, VR off, unprocessed. I have seen this in very few of my photos. What happened and how can I stop this from happening in the future. Thanks for your help, Paul

It is hard to tell from the thumbnail. Try posting the full download to the Photo Analysis section. http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/s-20-1.html

Suspiciously in the very center. Perhaps condensation on your lens not completely evaporated?

No it was a very nice day and I had taken over 1600 photos before and after & this is the only one like this on this day. Good question though.

What are you calling "this"?
From what I see is the contrast between the sky and the foliage is too great. You metered on the foliage, so the sky is blown out. Possibly a graduated ND filter would help?
Not sure if you exposed for the sky and then brought out the dark areas in post processing would work.

A washed out area in the center.

Maybe try "auto" next time... that's how I shoot but occasionally (don't) see this, too....

Oh, OK, now I see an image... in response, the sky is REALLY bright (3 or 4 stops over exposed) and that blue haze- if that's to what you're referring- is lens flare. Perhaps a smudged filter or lens surface contributes... Flares are most notable in shadow areas

Haze. High humidity. Closer to you will have less haze. The more distant, the more haze due to the distance length. Haze is cumulative over distance.

This happened in another photo that I was 10' from the subject in a forest so it wasn't haze. It was a ver nice cool day and we could see great distances with no haze that day.

Are you using a circular polarizing filter? Try bringing down the ISO to 100. Also, are you using a lens hood? If not, that may help cut some of the flare.

Not haze as it is clearer green behind. Probably not lens flare if sun was over your shoulder. Looks to be a smudge on lens or filter or could it have been a little smoke from a fire drifting in? Assume this is original vs PP shot that may have gotten screwed up. And obviously you know using a spot meter on shady area totally blew out the sky.

NOTE TO ALL: If including photo to analyze ALWAYS check the "store image" box first before attaching so a closer look and other data can be seen.

I checked the box for 'store image' after adding the photo. I guess I can't do that now. I did put most of the EXIF data in my description.
