    Whenever I take a photo of my light colored house with narrow siding, the shadow lines on the siding stand out as broken irregular lines. It causes the house to look rough and dilapidated.

    I've tried several settings on my Nikon COOLPIX 5.1 Megapixel.

    Is this a contrast issue?
    Can I make it better on the camera with another setting?
    Can I make it better through a computer editing program?

    are you only looking at this pictures on your camera? can you post up a photo for us to see? ive taken photo's of things like these and they show up as broken weird lines on the display on camera but when on computer they look fine. the broken up lines may just be due to the picture being resized which also happens on computers for like thumbnails, etc where the picture is quickly resized

    Make sure you view the image at 100%, rather than say 67%, to fit it on the screen... also post an image for us t have a look at - might be able to help better then :)
