    Night in Lake Geneva, WI

    Lake Geneva is such a great place. Plenty of shops, boat tours are cool, nice restaurants. THere are many celeb homes here, and it isn't as busy as LA or something similar. Here's some shots of some shops and things along the sidewalks. C&C on my night shots so I can improve future night shots...

    Racine Zoo WI. Some photos from yesterday.

    Here they are. By the way, this tiger you see was right in front of the glass on the other side eating some raw meat, and I was right on the other side of the glass, he/she looked up, and jumped on the glass. I jumped back and said a few choice words that described my startled response. I...

    Large bird at zoo!

    I love the eyes of this guy/girl. I don't know waht kind of bird it is unfortunately, but here it is. I am experimenting to see if my changes saved after saving to jpeg, because when I adjusted as a raw, and saved changes at jpeg, the jpeg doesn't look like my adjusted picture, so I'll see if...

    One more RAW question.

    ok so I put all my RAW photos I took today into my PictureProject program I got with my D40. Now I'm able to view the RAWs, so I'm getting closer. Now, if I pick some to do some pp to, then when I do the pp and convert to jpeg after the pp, will my adjustments save? That should be all. Thank you

    How do you know when a picture needs "help"?

    ok let me give an example. I'll look at a photo, and it will look good, to me, and then someone will adjust some settings and it will look amazing. Like then the first photo just doesn't look good at all. The question I'm asking is, does it just take time to get that trained eye for spotting...

    Cool Flower, will you help me crop?

    Ok so I want to print this, but I would like to have the flower in the background cropped out. Well first let me ask what you guys think. Should I keep the flower, or take it out? In a way I like it there in the background, how it is blurred, but then I think the picture would also look good...

    Bridge at dusk. Lake Geneva, WI C&C

    ok I was having some problems brightening up these images, and I'm not shooting in RAW yet, which I know is better for Post processing, but I only have a 1G card right now. So here is my attempt with these. C&C please. There is a little glare, because my UV filter was smudged a little.

    Sunset over Lake Michigan, light house, C&C!

    I went out tonite and got to the lake just in time to catch the sun setting. These are my first sunset photos ever, so C&C welcome. This is in Kenosha, WI on lake Michigan. One thing I love about photography is that if you don't get the shot in that one second, you will never get that same...

    Chicago's Field Museum.

    I went to the Field Museum today. I took a bunch of pictures mostly all in the Ancient Egypt exhibit. They may not be perfectly clear but in a museum, with low light, it is sometimes hard for me still. Enjoy, C&C! please!

    Butterflies at a Museum

    At the Milwaukee museum they have a butterfly exhibit, where you walk in this room, and there are butterflies flying around you. It was alot of fun, and really cool seeing these up close, being able to really see and hold them (let land on your hand, not really "hold" it). I know they aren't...
