    I just got my camera a couple of days ago and have been taking a couple of pics. I am looking for tips and tricks to increase the quality of my pics. This is my first time using settings other than auto. Thanks in advances for all of your comments

    no1: bring the vibrance up
    2: gorgeous shot (best one in my opinion) yet again tho vibrance
    3: lovely eyes, brilliant focus, clone out the dribble, crop the bottom out
    4: too out of focus to be able to do much with, stick with the first 3.

    Good luck :D

    I am going to have to do some research on how to turn up the vibrance.

    Thanks for the tip on cropping #3. I never would have thought of that.

    On the 4th pic, I was using the sports preset. I love that pic I just wish that I could get it clearer.

    #2 is a great shot. Cute kid!

    Here's my take on the ball pit photo. Just a couple minor touch-ups and color and brightness adjustments (orig looked a bit washed out).

    Flash seems to be washing them out a fair bit.

    #2 is pretty soft (looks like you were too close for the lenses focus)
    #4 was action blur it seems, should have bumped up the ISO, stopped the lens down, etc.

    But upon checking the EXIF you're using a P&S so I'm not sure how much you could adjust all of that.

    Awesome job with the touch ups! Did you use a program to do that or a website?

    Reznap,
    What did adjustments did you do with this pic? I love the softer look it has.
