I am trying to learn the Nikon D100. I shot some phot's using the P (auto program) mode and they were very light and looked washed out. The then set the camera on "A" (aperature) and made sure it was on F16 (it was bright and sunny outside). Those also looked washed out. I did use a circular polarizer also when I shot the photo's. Any tips on getting better qualtiy images? I was able to repair the shots I took today in PhotoShop. Thanks in advance!

HI,... are you getting low quality? or its just color issues?

When you use DSRL you must know that in most of the cases you will ne to get your hands on the image.

BTW it would be great if you post an example for us to see.

Could you attach an example to this thread? That would help.

It is possible that the metering mode used just did it wrong. For example, if you pick the spot meter and meter off something which is dark (like the shadow of a building) but the rest of the building is well lit.... well, then the light parts of the building will be washed out (blown out, more likely) and the dark parts will be ok.

So well us the metering mode and how us an example.

Sorry, I can't attached the photo as I already fixed it in photoshop . I did not save the originals. I will go out and shoot some more and see what happens. I will then attached those so that you can see what I mean. Thanks for your input.
