    Took a few hours to day to relax and go out for the first time with my new camera. We have a lot of slate and quarry's around here. so i figured that would be a nice place to start. was kind of an overcast day for the 2nd half.

    Its not that there under or over exposed. It just looks to me that you need to post process. Brightness / Contrast ect. other then that you got some good captures here. Very good start.

    i have a sony cyber shot H2.... well like i said it was a dark cloudy day so it was hard to make it bright without getting overexposure. I will ps them though i just wanted to post how they came out without any touch ups.

    It's still a little dark...but if that's what you are going for...then that's OK too.

    That sky looks pretty blue in that last shot for it to be a cloudy day like you said
