The Nikon D5200's automatic white balance system has overcompensated for the warm tones of this subject and has produced a low-saturation image.

Setting a custom white balance value has produced a much warmer and more pleasing result.

With the correct white balance selected, the Standard Picture Control setting produces nice vibrant images that are a good match for the scene.

These dark cherries fooled the Matrix metering system into overexposing a little, and -1EV exposure compensation was required to get them looking just right.

This shot was taken at the highest sensitivity expansion setting, equivalent to ISO 25,600. It looks good at small sizes, but as you start to zoom in - or make it larger - slight banding is visible in some areas (see below).
