    yeah really like the golf shot, it looks like a tweaked version of the "Cold Tone" preset in LR.

    Actually, just a little green and blue tweak, some sharpening, and the selenium tone using the color treatment. Took me 5 minutes.
    I thought about a Titleist ad as soon as I saw the final result. Was thinking this picture with different phrases all around it like "keep your head down", "follow through", etc. Then at the bottom, something to the effect of "Now is not the time to wonder if you made the right choice. There's only one. Titleist." Kind of cheesey but I could see it. Don't take my idea! I'm gonna patent it! lol

    nice - I didn't mean you used that preset If you don't mind me asking, where is the selenium tone from? I mean, what program.

    A shot from a wedding.

    Ya know, I am still very much a novice when it comes to photography and post-processing. I read "The Digital Photography Book" by Scott Kelby cover to cover a few nights ago and am noticing dramatically better pictures. I am changing settings in-camera that I never even thought about before the read. Things like using an actual White Balance as opposed to the Auto setting, exposure compensations, trying to find the aperature at which my lens is sharpest, using the Highlights feature to get my exposure right, trying different framings, angles, etc. Just by understanding and utilizing some of these in-camera features, my pictures seem to have jumped leaps and bounds in just a couple days. I have the Field Guide for the D40/D40x coming too which is getting great reviews. I learn best by reading, then going hands-on. Sorry to ramble, but I recommend reading as much as possible to any novice on this board. I just wish I had done it 6 months ago!

    Good one Kjmdrumz & 500ml. That brandname really stands out, good luck talking to marketting

    I really like this shell photo even though it's very simple in subject matter and execution.
    I'm pretty disappointed with the bird though. I really thought I'd nailed a shot getting so close to the bird and its home (that hole behind it) on a bushwalk. I don't know what I did wrong in all the shots, I guess it's just the compostion is disappointing compared to my expectations of how it would look. Still felt obligated to post as always.

    huh ?? what are you disappointed about ? its a great shot and you DID nail it. birds in their natural environment are not easy to catch and its a matter of luck whether the composition works or not given all the obstructions and their skittiness.

    all you can do is try and nail the focus, nail the exposure and hope for the rest. you did all of that so theres nothing to be disappointed at mate.
