    Some lovely shots however, they seem a little underexposed and have a blue hue about them? Do you know the settings you used when taking these and what type of film did you use?

    I have to agree with Melanie - lovely shots, but technically something is not right -- I agree more info please

    (are these film or digital shots?)
    Also - well done with that last shot - you must have had to get close to have got that!

    These remind me of last summer, I spent most of it around Africa, including South Africa.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    As others have said, nice pics, but they seem a bit hazy. Did you do any post processing on them? They may just need a 'levels' adjustment to get rid of that.

    I noticed that blue tint, how do you recommend getting rid of it? :(

    At that time I was using a Canon Powershot S3 IS and learning how to shoot on the manual mode.
    They are digital shots :) That deer was a bit tamer than the others :D
    Thanks :)
    Thanks :) A bit, I used the windows image resizer

    hmm do you have any software on the computer for editing shots? Something like GIMP or photoshop elements?
    *shout up if you have elements - I know how to use that!*
    but for general advice - look for the "levels" feature in your editing software and get it to auto set the levels

    like Antarctican said all it needed was a change in the levels - this is what elements did - I just ran auto levels and nothing else

    also something that I find especially usefull (very much so with furry and feathery things) is the unsharpen mask - which does exactly the opposite of what you think it does by name. Most digital shots need a bit of additional sharpening in the computer and when you resize a shot its also good to add some more sharpening to compensate for the blurr of reducing the size

    some good info

    Thats ok - show us what you come up with :)
    *its also usefull to note down the settings you used - some adjust things that you can't see unless you really look for it - others there are some "optimal" working areas*
