why ISO 1600? That is very high and the light appears not to be too lacking - if it was to get more light on the shaded trees I think the only way would be a tripod and a longer shutter speed- but then you run the risk of the foreground being too overexposed.

Well.... I guess I would first ask why you would use a high ISO at 11:00am?

You should be able to shoot this @ ISO100... especially with your VR lenses..

Composition wise... there is really nothing interesting in this picture....

What is the focal point? What should I be looking at?

There is no story in the picture.

Other notes for landscapes -

Shoot F9 - F11 if you can

Use a polarizer to blue up the sky

Use your in camera Active-D lighting

Use a tripod instead of increasing ISO

Shoot at sunrise and/or sunset when the colour temperature is warmer

I think we're all thinking the same thing here. Why ISO 1600?

Remember that the higher your ISO, the higher the digital noise that enters into your image. If you were around in the film era, you would remember the beautiful ASA 25 slide films compared with the grainy ASA 400 -- it's the same idea.

Other comments I agree on:

The sky would be greatly improved with a polarizer.

Use a tripod -- there is no action in the image and the landscape isn't going anywhere. It also gives you more time to think through your composition.

You need something to draw the viewer's eye into the picture -- to make him want to look further.

And no, you're not annoying. Asking these questions with your examples is how you are going to get very good! Those that don't ask, don't learn. Keep shooting!

Thanks, I knew something was missing. I'm new with this cam. So why not try it all.
