    I like this image for content. It needs a little more contrast in the image, it looks a little flat. Maybe its the conversion to B&W. How are you converting your image?

    Well, you see...it's like this....(don't laugh! :er:), my Kodak EasyShare comes with software...and I clicked "B&W". :blushing: :blushing: :blushing: (As well as other stuff....lighten...increase shadows...etc...)

    I agree...it is flat. It just doesn't sit right with me.

    Thanks for the input.





    ....So much to learn.....so little time!! LOL!!

    If you get the chance to get some form of photoshop that will help you out.

    Too much going on, I would have taken this shot a little closer like this example (although I hate that black line striking through the bottom third of the photo).

    Yeah, thanks....it was really hard to find a crop I liked. I liked the window.

    Actually, if I cold go back and get more shots I'd like to get more of an angle. I think that would be better than the dead-on.

    Thanks! I appreciate the feed back!
