    These are great, but really lack contrast and saturation in my opinion.

    I agree with Sw1tchFX; these seem too bright and lack saturation. I think a polarizing filter would have made these good photos great. Sorry if I am too harsh (I think it's because I am really tired). You could also enhance them with photoshop or another program.

    Agree with others...great pictures, but they need work with the saturation, lighting, etc. I did just a little work on this one in Photoshop. Hope you don't mind my editing it, if you do I'll take it down.

    Wow, thanks a bunch everyone, great advice and great results, I'll definitely keep my eye on improving lighting, contrast, and saturation.

    Would you recommend taking the picture at a darker metering level? Or should I make better use of the central average metering that I have? Or is the exposure the problem? Also I believe the scanning made some of the pictures seem brighter than they were on my prints. Any advice would be great.

    Again, many thanks.

    maybe half a stop under and THe lack of contrast is a result of the film i think.
