    These are just a few images that I took for my high school photography class in senior year. These were taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3. C&C is welcome.

    4. This one was taken on black and white 35mm film, don't remember the exact camera. I believe it was a Canon EOS of some sort.

    These are all unedited by the way. How would I correct for the bland/washed out skies? I'm very new to photoshop as well so any help is appreciated.

    Thank you. The last one was one of my best pictures from that class.

    You can try adjusting the Levels in Photoshop, but it's going to be hard to darken an overblown sky. Same thing with the dark image. Very hard to lighten a dark image without adding noise. Best to learn how to proply expose a photo.

    As far as bland skies.....wait for sunrise/sunset.

    I do like the last one though. :thumbup:

    Unfortunately the camera I have has no manual controls for aperture / shutter speed etc so I was relying on its internal sensors for proper exposure. It's mostly just a point and shoot camera and I was trying to get the best pictures I could out of what I had. I might fool around with them in photoshop tonight to see what I can get.

    I figured there were no manual controls. You best bet is to play around in Photoshop and save your money for your Nikon D90. :mrgreen:

    Listen to this man. HikinMike has some of the best landscape shots I have seen. Learn about proper exposure. The book Understanding Exposure is a wonderful book to learn from.

    http://www.amazon.com/Understanding...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1261662104&sr=8-1

    Edit: Seems like you probably have a pretty good understanding of exposure but you fell victim to a point and shoot camera. I like your last shot that was done on film. I still really enjoy that book so it might be something to check out.

    I love the last image. It would make an excellent Flash/Web template especially.
