    Well i just got a second hand E-510 with the 12-42 mm kit lense, and played around with it in the last month. I've read some books on iso, shutter speed, etc, but i still have a problem. I overexpose ALL the time, and after i take the picture, it looks fine on the preview screen, but when i put it on the computer it looks el horrible =(

    I just wanna now how i'm progressing, here are some shots i took.

    It's hard to say after the fact when they've been through photoshop... could you post an original or 2?

    post the originals because none of them except maybe the sky in the first one and the rocks on the cliff on the third looks overexposed

    When you frame your shot, watch out for distractions. An example would the person in the lower right corner in shot 2. I know you can crop them out, but sometimes it's not that simple when a key part of the photo is in the same area and you wanted to size it to maintain aspect ratio.
