Hello Everyone,

This is my first time to join a Photo Challenge. What should I do to improve my shots? I'm using a Finepix S3000.

Thanks for viewing! :bye:

I dunno about improving it. I like it as it is. It's nice, light and softly done. Just like this sort of shot should be.

Great photos Mark! I also saw your photos of your niece, and they look great too.

Did you get your S3000 here in the Philippines? From what store? I'm planning to get one too as my first digicam.

Salamat!

I got mine at SM fairview for 17,+++ php . they are also available at fujifilm SM north edsa and megamall. you can call their Sto. Domingo office at 7436601 for more info.

it is a nice camera but there is a very minor defect..

Mark I like the image and it really shows off the beauty of the cathedral. Is this image post-processed and was it shot from a tripod? This is a great image. If it were my photo, I might try a contrast mask to knockout the hot spots caused by the lights. This is easily accomplished in Photoshop. www.luminous-landscape.com has a tutorial on making a contrast mask in Photoshop but that's me.

Hi Rod!

Thanks for that very useful link. about the photo, I didn't use a tripod and I played with its brightness/contrast in photoshop.

i'll post contrast masked version once I get around the tutorial.

here's the original photo(resized)
