Joining....again

I've been here once before last year but nothing "clicked" til recently, so I figured I would start again Smile

I'm Jennifer, mom to 4, have a Canon XSi w/ a kit lens & 50 mm 1.8. My main thrill is landscapes and other random things but I'm trying to learn everythig. I have PSE 7 which I'm finally learning as well. I am also taking MLK's online class and looove lurking on ILP. I'm sticking around this time, lol. Here are 2 I took the other day, SOOC, I only saved for web.

iso 200
exp 1/800
f/7.1

iso 200
exp 1/100
f/10

welcome back, Jennifer! these are both great shots, especially for being SOCC. have you started to play with them any in PSE7? That first shot looks like it was taken in full sun in the middle of the day (looking at the shadows). This washes out the color a bit. An adjustment to levels or curves (not sure what you can do in PSE) and maybe a bump in the saturation would turn this really nice photo into a show stopper, imho. Smile

take care and, again, glad to have you back!

Best,
GiGi

Thanks Smile They were both taken around noonish, it was GREAT to finally have sun and warmth so I made sure I was out and about lol. I've tried playing with the 1st one a bit but nothing to dramatic.
