Seriously, I've learned so much, and have gotten great feedback and encouragement since joining this forum, I went out today all by myself for some experimenting. For the first time ever, I didn't use the auto setting on my D50 once! I also shot in RAW for the first time and did some post-processing in the free ViewNX program. Here are some results - love any feedback or suggestions you might have for them: 1. I shot this one through the glass viewing window. I was going to try and clone out the tongue, but I thought it actually was pretty cool and added something to the photo. 2. Don't know what was with my catching animals with their tongues out today, but this guy looked like he was giving the visitors a big old raspberry "thbpppppt"! 3. I have done absolutely ZERO post-processing to this photo, but I welcome suggestions on how to improve it. I took this in the walk through area of the shark tank at the aquarium and was pretty surprised when I saw the result! Thanks for looking!
