    Was it handheld or tripod?

    At first glance I would say a longer shutter and smaller aperture might have helped out a bit...but only if you had a tripod or a support of any kind.

    Seems to lack a bit of something, but it is a great shot composition-wise.

    But those are only my 2 cents and the latest conversion rates for newbies and people with crappy monitors at work means that my 2 cents are worth nothing. :D

    So you got yourself this new camera ... and do you also have some post processing software you can use? There always comes a CD with the camera, that should give you some means to tweak things a bit even later, like brightness and contrasts, colour saturation and such things.

    This photo of Weston-super-mud ... erm -Mare :biglaugh: could do with a contrast boost.

    Hey, I see you got yourself the 350D ... same camera as the one I have ... which - I find - always produces too bright, too little contrasted photos when shot in automatic mode. I tend to underexpose all my photos by one stop at least these days.

    LaFoto do you think this typical instance for using RAW ,but i keeps pulling me away from learning the camera and back to the pc ,,maybe white balance or black and white maybe:thumbup:

    I can't tell about shooting RAW because today (!) was the VERY FIRST DAY I ever shot a picture in RAW!
    Ever since 22 December (which was my birthday and the day I got my 350D) I have so far only taken jpeg-pics, and I started out in all auto and worked myself towards fully manual, and now to RAW (I take my time in learning things and never read the manuals, cough-cough), so I cannot really say that this is a "typical RAW problem" ... it seems to be the camera's problem. But once you shoot fully manual, you can do a lot to get the photos right in the camera.
