How can I make this picture better.

It was taken spur of the moment as I was coming home from work with my DX 6490

I`m just wondering lieben,,,what would this have looked like with a polarizing filter in front,,,

A polarizing filter will cut glare/reflections and make the sky really blue,,,a lot of programs like Jasc and PSE2 will help,,,and can replicate filters,,,but,,,,nothing works like the actual filter,,,on the cam,,,cutting glare....improving color

I think if you get a polarizing filter for sky/grass shots,,,you`d be really suprised just what you`d get in the way of different/better photo`s

I`ve got to get the filter tube for my DX6490,,,but i seem to like waiting i quess to see if kodak gets it out this month,,,again,,,as promissed,,we`ll see i quess..

Just take hundreds of pics,,,,they`re free you know,,,and throw out the bad,,,there will always be good and bad ones,,,and enjoy your DC...

Oh,,,,want to try something different ? ? ?,,,get an old globe off one of those old oil burning lamps,,,a small one,,,you can get these in colors too,,,put that over the front of your lense,,the shape of the inside gives you a lighter-darker color with a round picture of what you are aiming at at the end...you can also take a skylight filter,,,put a little vaseline on the end of your finger,,,and run your finger arround the outer portion of the filter glass,,makes a nice blurr affect for taking portraits,,and can be removed from the inexpensive filter later..

Thanks for advice. I've never used a filter before with any type of camera. But Im very excited about the filters for my Kodak camera because I'm really starting to get into digital photography. I'm still trying to fix my rainbow in photoshop though. And I might try the vaseline/filter trick.....it sounds interesting.



Thanks again

Gina

Rick i used PSE2 and i get about the same results under quick fix-brightnes-auto levels,then i changed the saturation a little,,,we must be doing the same thing,,,,great minds think alike you know,,,,ha,ha,ha..would be nice to bring the rainbo out more,,,but i would need more time,,,that i don`t have,,,but the leaves have a little more side lighting in mine,,,,you could play for hours with this..
