Looks great, it may be a tad over exposed though. I would have dialed in some negative exposure compensation to save the highlights. The D40 will blow highlights when you have it set for high contrast. I set my D40 to the lowest contrast, sharpness, and medium - high saturation. I find that I squeeze the most detail out of the D40 with those settings.

Thanks for the CC Shagrath, when I took this shot I did not know the use of the camera functions, I printed this 10 * 8 as I only use a laptop. It looked odd especially with the shade on one side and now I think I could have used a filter to bring out the sky.

I’ll try your suggestions and continue to improve from tips on the forum. Like the eye star in your avatar.

Cheers

You did good, I know it's hard to remember all of the details when you're in a hurry or something. The best way to become good at working in difficult situations is to remember all of these little details and keep them in the back of your mind. That way it doesn't take any thinking to remember and it becomes second nature. The biggest part of it is practicing and learning the ins and outs of your particular camera.

Ahh this picture brings back memories. The picture does look a bit funny to me; I am not sure if it is noise or whether the current size of the picture just cannot do justice to the amount of detail. Or perhaps it is just the screen through which I am looking.
