I dont see the Critique Gallery, and notice more people will see it here... I hope its ok to post it here.. OK ALL The CC you can dish out would be appreciated.. Im learning my manual mode on the Nikon.. Now this is a child who does NOT sit still for the life of me.. F - 5.6 or so SS 100 and ISO is 200... The darker one is my original.. SO I did some PSing to UMPH It up a bit.. I also used 2 different levels to see the difference.. Plus on the forum my pictures look a little darker them my PS for some reason... HERE are my layouts UNedited - 2- Sharpened, and added levels 3- Played with levels a bit more MY Question is why cant I get a PIcture like 3 with out having to edit it etc.??
