iso 1600?? - Photography

Hi all, I have an iso question, yesterday I was taking pics with my D70. It was a sunny day and I was taking pics of my little girl flying a kite, camera was pointed up in the air, using kit lens, camera set to manual....shutter speed of 250-400 aperture 5.6-8 . Iso was set on auto and it picks 1600 for these settings......what gives? I have a UV filter on lens I never shoot auto iso, but was just trying it out to see what the camera would pick. Anyone else have similar experiences why would camera pick such ...

    Default iso 1600??

    Hi all, I have an iso question, yesterday I was taking pics with my D70. It
    was a sunny day and I was taking pics of my little girl flying a kite,
    camera was pointed up in the air, using kit lens, camera set to
    manual....shutter speed of 250-400 aperture 5.6-8 . Iso was set on auto and
    it picks 1600 for these settings......what gives? I have a UV filter on lens
    I never shoot auto iso, but was just trying it out to see what the camera
    would pick. Anyone else have similar experiences why would camera pick such
    high iso on a sunny day??

    Thanks,

    Seems to me that if you fixed the shutter speed and fixed the aperture
    the only thing left for the camera to adjust would be the iso.

    I'm not experienced enough to know the answer, nor whether these sound like
    reasonable exposure setting, but two questions:

    How did the images turn out? Did they "look right"?

    What was metering set to? Could you have been spot metering on a
    (relatively) dark bit (daughter/kite) and the camera concentrated on that
    rather than the overall brightness?

    AH.......yes spot metering was on, hadn't thought of that. First few pics
    with lens wide open were n out but when I stopped down smaller than f8
    they were tolerable. I shoot in raw so I could save most of them. I had
    white balance set for sunshine and most of the sky pics were way off color
    as well

    Thanks,
    Mike
