    Just a meerkat at the zoo to prove I occasionally experiment with the nifty 50.

    Ok, here is a shot from a visit to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago:



    Nikkor 50mm, F4, 1/60, Auto ISO (again not indicated in EXIF).

    This was shot through the glass, obviously, but I think it turned out fairly well under the conditions.

    C&C welcomed, as stated before, still trying to learn and improve.

    Ramblingman,

    That shot looks out of focus. Looks like a beautiful location though.

    Turo, nice shot of the beach. I don't think it is all that overexposed. There's still plenty of detail in the sand. You could recover all the detail if you like, but keeping the sand this bright does keep an impression of the heat on the beach in the picture.

    Rooz, very cute picture. I like the use of black and white with a shade of colour here.

    Nice shot. Beautiful colours. I think you could improve it a little by cropping a bit of the right side, so that the two fish are not in the center of the shot.

    Your ISO was 200, by the way (same goes for your previous picture). Windows (and some other exif viewers) doesn't allways show the complete EXIF. A third party program like Opanda IExif shows a lot more.

    Opanda IExif can be downloaded for free. One cool feature is that you can rightclick any picture on internet and request the exif. Very handy when you see a beautiful picture and want to know how the photographer took this. It's a pity, though, that many photographers strip the exif of their images.
    With Opanda you can get a lot more interesting (or not) data from your exif. For instance that the picture of the fish was the 5034th picture you have shot with your camera

    Ramblingman, nice shot (even though it doesn't look that sharp as it is). I think the softness we see here is not caused by the image being out of focus (or lens shake for that matter). Instead I think it's caused by JPEG compression.
    You tried to fit a large image (1200*800 pixels) with lots of detail (more detail takes up more space) into a small filesize (250 kb). To make this fit, your resize program used a very high compression, which causes a huge loss of detail.

    I think you would get a much sharper picture if you used a smaller file size (800x600 pixels). That way you will not need as much compression. Also, the file size limit of the forums is now 500 kb, so for that reason you need less compression as well. Also, after resizing it is often necessary to sharpen a bit, because you will loose some sharpness when resizing.

    An alternative is to upload your pictures on Flickr. Flickr will then do the resizing for you and keep them sharp.
