Took these at a place call Rainforest Adventures just outside of Pigeon Forge TN. in Sevierville TN. They were all behind Glass. Some are good and other are not so good. Hope you enjoy.

Have a good day

Richard

Good pictures. But, they do seem to be missing that biting sharpness... You're still using full manual, aren't you? I think that's the thing. I highly suggest sticking to P mode and A mode until you master them.

#4 has a really bad blue cast on it (Because of the tungsten white balance...)... #1 seems a little underexposed. They're all missing that biting sharpness. This may be because of the glass...

Sorry for the critique... but, I want to see your pictures shine. You can't just use full manual controls right off the bat. You gotta start with auto, get a feel for how the camera works... So, I think you should use P mode a lot more. Then move onto messing with A mode and S mode. THEN after you get an understanding of shutter speed and aperture combanations... you use manual.

I'm not saying they're terrible... I'm just saying they could be better. So yes, learn and master P mode, then, go into A and S modes. Also, another tip, manual mode shouldn't be used as a general shooting mode. Manual should be used for when the lighting is very hard. And when you need full control to get the picture exposed right.

Here's a rundown:

P mode: Probably the best mode for general shooting. Better than auto for the manual ISO change. and others.

A mode: Best for macro and wildlife shots. Great control over DOF.

S mode: Best for action shots. Good control over how lighting as well. The faster the shutter, the less light. the slower, the more light.

M mode: Best for very low light shots. Hard for general shooting because of how easy it is to mess up exposure. (i.e. Setting the aperture at F8 and the shutter at 1/1000....)

(At least, I think that's how it breakes down. XD)

Hope this helps. Keep those pictures coming! :-)
