Ifan - might want to crop that a bit...too much blue sky for me =P

Hafs - nicely done as usual. Was that taken with your d60? I can't imagine the s45 with so little noise.

Enterusername - cool flower shot

Most of them have been post processed. It's a must I think if you are going to post pics.

you think it'll look better if i crop it some more?

i want to show the tail smoke and still have the planes in the middle. and if i crop some more and it might be too grainy for desktop size.

what do you think?

Yes all pics need to be processed to some degree.

Jen - that looks much sharper than ifans

Ifan - Well if you're using it for desktop size, just keep it like that. For a normal viewing, i'd crop some of the top right out. Ever heard of the 2/3ds rule?

aka "rule of thirds". the eye naturally goes to the top 2/3's of the page. so when you take a picture you usually want the subject to be on one of the 1/3's. think of a tic-tac-toe board. your image should be where two of the lines intersect

That's one way to do things.

I prefer to adjust things in photoshop. Especially since I shoot RAW which means there is no in-camera sharpening, saturation boost, etc. I use photoshop to make sure i get the white balance right, the exposure right, and to sharpen/saturate it a little if necessary. Also to crop/resize for web.

It's not like it's cheating or anything..

I totally agree. I hope you don't mind, mbandoni288, but I did some quick post processing to your sig to show you how a bit of playing around with PS can make those two pics look even greater.

Took me about a minute to do that.
