    I think its oversharpened. I set the in-camera sharpness to high, and that probably was a bad thing.

    I also messed with saturation for the first time EVER. I probably went overboard.

    As far as composition, its kinda bland. But this place was really cool. It was flat, arid, and NOTHING growing (when I live in a place that has tons of vegetation). It was a really neat contrast and I was trying really hard to get that. I don't know if I did or not.

    The picture looks kinda weird.

    You might want to try shooting from a lower point-of-view next time.

    THis was a foot off the ground. Maybe 2. That shrub is only about a foot or two tall.

    Try putting the camera on the ground next time.

    It's hard to tell how tall things are sometimes if you don't have something else to reference it to.

    Dangit! :-(

    Also, why do my colors always look so uneven? Is that from being a P&S?

    Yeah. It's also where all the noise came from... That's just how they roll.

    Panasonic Lumix FZ-20. Its about 4 years old, and has a 5mp sensor.

    I'm thinking about getting a circular polarizer, but then I am getting a new camera in about a month or two.

    Don't really know anything about the Panasonic Lumix FZ-20, but looking at the images on the Panasonic Lumix FZ-20 Flickr Group the images look pretty good. You might want to check the settings of you camera to be sure something not set wrong.

    Is this version any better? I toned it down a bit and used another form to resize it (one that didn't emphasize sharpness).[​IMG]

    This picture looks more natural. There's something weird going on in the clouds though...noise? JPEG artifacts?
