    We had a guest speaker at the after-school program that I work at, and I was put in charge of the photography :camera: I didnt realize ahead of time, however, how horrible the lighting in the meeting hall was. Basically, there's an entire wall of really low windows, plain walls on the opposite side and back, and in the front (where the speaker was) there were two doors with lots of light coming in. The overhead lighting there is high recessed lighting, and to make matters worse, the speaker used a TV for part of his presentation, so when I tried using the flash, it kept reflecting off of the screen!
    So what I ended up with was rather grainy, blurred, or dark shots. (Anyone have any ideas how to combat this in the future?)
    Of the 50 or so I thought I might be able to salvage, 24 turned out okay. I tried tweaking them with my Picasa, and then again with PS7, and most of them ended up okay one way or the other, but there were a few that I still couldnt decide which were better. Please take a look?

    Oooh. Tough question, but I think, after some looking and thinking that of each set the first version is a little better than the second. But others might think otherwise...
