I'm liking the second one, although it seems a little overexposed.

thanks Markh for the tip.

HNV I love the second one with the pathway - good job.

Gregory rotter love that sunset, and the little girl - is she on the way to school, or just out for a day at the beach - either way wish I was her because it looks nice there.

:D :lol: :D

Hey miki, thanks for the comments.

With regard to the little girl shot, I just took the shot because I was ammused by how big her 'back pack' was in relation to how small she was. :lol: I just happened to be at the beach where I took the shot. If anyone is thinking, 'Hmmm, you had your 70-300 at a public beach' ? I sure did. There wasn't anything remotely interesting to shoot, but anyway.

Gregory- did you use filter to get a nice shot of the sunset?

Nope, I used bracketing, with 0.7 increments, 3 shots taken (1 under/normal/over), chose the best shot. I was using Vivid. I also opened the RAW file in Picture project, and added some p+p D lighting (low setting) to bring out some of the foreground.

Hi miki,

Thanks for your reply.. you should see the shot full-size or at least a bigger resolution. The detail level is amazing!

Cheers,
HNV

I was really disappointed with this shot when I took it, it was out of focus and underexposed. I, for some reason, had decided not to check the LCD like I normally do. I played around with in Lightroom in an attempt to salvage it and this is what I came up with. I think that, technically, it is horrible but it seems to hold some appeal for me. Not quite sure why!
