    Thanks for helping. With my unsteady hands maybe I should just leave it at 400 all the time, lol.

    morning on the mountain

    Thanks for the info and taking the time to comment. Grain doesn't bother me so I don't know why I always try to keep the iso so low.

    morning on the mountain

    No tripod. Shutter speed 1/90, iso 100, 250mm, f/5.6. Kit lens, and I'm not the steadiest at handheld shots. It's also heavily cropped.

    Old lady near butcher shop

    The photo has an immediate effect on you. And the framing is perfect. I think the photo is dark as well but if it were lighter, you would be paying too much attention to the other people and not the lady herself. I really like this one.

    the lake bed

    The dam where I take many of my photos is being replaced. One side of the lake bed is dry except for a small stream of water. The other side has about 6 inches of water but is overrun with loosestrife. Construction is going to take about 2 years. I am not sure what will happen to all the...
