Alandjo you may need to resize this photo to 800x600 and when you save it be sure that it isn't more than 250K in size.
If you don't own a circular polarizeing filter you might want to get one. It will help cut down on the reflected light from the water and allow the other parts of the photo to show a little better. I hope this will help a little.

Yep I was right. You must be saving the picture at too large a size ( bigger than 250K.) Everytime I try to load it the picture is cut off at about 1/3 of the photo.

I was able to down load the photo and liked it a lot. As I said earlier though you might try a circular polarizeing filter on shots of water and sky, this will cut down on some of the reflective light and make the subjects stand out better. Just a suggestion, hope it helps.

Thanks Dawg, I earmarked the filter on B & H and will send them an order when and if I get in good graces here at home. Maybe take the wife out to dinner will be a step in the right direction.

I really like the shot of the little ducks Alandjo.What camera are you using?

Thanks for working on my robin also.I didn't do anything to it ,thats the way it came from the camera.I'm new with camera so the settings could have probably been set different for a sharper picture

Sandy, Am using a DX6490, like it very much and have had it 6 weeks.

Earlier you said you had Photo Suite 7 which I also have and it can help improve pictures a lot. Sport mode is good for action and if you also put in "Burst" it gives you a choice of several of the subjects movements in a short time. Other than Sport Mode you would have to go to manual settings which I know nothing about, but hope to learn gradually. (THERE IS SOOO MUCH TO LEARN BUT IT CAN BE A LOT OF FUN)
