    So I went for a hike today. It was the first time I've had the SLR out to take pictures of anything but my car for a while now lol! I've been so busy this summer that I haven't had much time to photograph things. So I took these today while at the park. Its nice to be back!

    I had a hard time getting a real sharp, steady shot. The light was fading and I had to use high ISO. (plus I'm kinda rusty!)

    lol It's also my 400th post! :D

    I think it's a little bit overexposed, and maybe some midtone contrast or something could help these photos. For some reason I'm getting a "snapshotty" feel from these pictures.

    I had to use 1250 ISO I think. These were around F/4 if I remember correctly. The lens I was using is only f/3.5 (40-150mm) lol I'm a college student and can't afford big fast lenses (my money goes to my big fast car :mrgreen: lol)

    Actually, I'm surprised, the Olympus sensor does quite well at high ISO's. Pictures are useable at 1600. Although you can see grain.
