    When I resized the pictures I cut off the top of the pictures. Sorry this is the first time trying to work with digital pictures.
    Thanks Again Frank

    imho photos of old barns and delapidated buildings can;t carry themselves on their own. they look much better taken in the context of their environment. maybe try a reshoot with the barn in the bottom right corner and more of the field.

    looks a little soft and flat aswell. so maybe a quick leves and curves adjustment and some sharpening will do wonders.

    Thanks Rooz I will try that and post them. I wanted to take these pictures for years in black and white but never had the film to do it. As soon as I got my camera and drove right over. I have Photo Shop but don't know how to adjust pictures yet. I have a friend who is going to give me some help.


    Sony nut it was her fault I had to buy a new camera she tried to load the film in my old camera and pushed in the screen. Lucky me or I would still be stuck in the film age.

    nicer composition, how about a landscape crop ?

    upped the levels and curves and some unsharp mask. you need to work on your camera settings. the pics are way too soft and flat. maybe Don can help you get the most out of your in cam settings.

    Rooz Thanks for all your help. I try taking all my shots with different settings. I try program, auto, and landscape. I was also told to try to shoot at F8 because it is the best part of your lens. Have been doing alot of reading on how to use the camera. What is the best book on photo shop if that is what you use to enhance your pictures. I posted some of my old pictures as well as some of the new ones I just took on Flckr The link is on the bottom of my post.


    Thanks again Frank

    your welcome.

    for a photo like that, try getting out of the full auto modes and stick to aperture priority. shoot at around f8-f11 cos you want a good depth of field.

    somehwere in your cameras settings is something for sharpness and contrast. bump them right up. or, just do it wit software later. what i just did then you can do with any software at all.
