Nice detail and colour, looks like you have solved your problem. :D


Cheers

Thanks 4xxxx! I think one of my problems was the resizing from my computer to Photobucket to here. I changed my photo setting to the postcard size to see if it made a difference. I was getting frustrated because the pictures usually look sharper on my PC screen than they do when I post them here. I usually shoot on the larger setting so I can print them larger for a friend of mine who has macular degeneration (he has trouble seeing details in small pictures.)

The first two pictures were taken today - it's the first time the sun's been out in about a week - rare for here (we usually have a lot of sun). I actually found the bright sun on the snow and ice a little hard to take pictures of - it was really bright! Both pictures still had to be resized, but not as much as usual. I cropped the first one a little to get rid of some of the roof. Both were shot on the TV setting (apeture priority), ISO 200, f 4.5 - the first at 1/500 sec. and the second at 1/160 sec.

Nice shots! I do think as well that your problem is solved. By the way...

I don't know what setting you used, but I'd just like to tell you this:

Av = Aperture priority
Tv = Shutter priority

I hope I helped :)

Thanks Pier! Yep, I knew that. I even got the camera to check when I wrote it, but switched to AV to see what I was on... I did have it on TV (shutter speed priority).

Here's one more, but this was taken before I changed the settings (TV, ISO 200, f 4.5, 1/250 sec., early morning):
