For someone inexperienced with the camera, at night, moving targets (there is a pan mode in the scene menus btw), I don't think you did too bad. The only Real issue I see is the flash bouncing off of the mist in the air. Even that adds something interesting.. To me anyway.

EDIT: What are you using to resize them??

Nice job with some really tough shooting situations! I think you can see why I said what I said in my initial post. About 20% of your photos were decent, and the rest were a wash. Folks tend to give up, but 20% is better than nothing. And, nothing is what you get when you start shooting. This (low light shooting) is one area where DSLRs have it all over the fixed lens digicams.

Here's a free exif reader. Use it in Internet Explorer to see exif of pics on screen as well as in your computer. Right click the pic and see what happened. The camera chose f 2.8 on all these, but used ISO 400 on #1 @1/60 and Iso [email protected]/4 on #2. A 1/4 sec is a tough handheld shot plus any motion will be blurred. All in all good effort.

Here's a free editor that you can use to resize,sharpen etc. It's good program and has an exif reader as well

I can't state this as a fact but photobase may be compressing the jpg files more that you want it to. I didn't notice the opertunity to select the compression size. When ever you edit a jpg, always make a copy and edit that (so you always have the original to go back to) and save at the highest quality setting possible.

One freebie that will allow you to do that is http://www.picasa.com ... I haven't tried Irfanview but Nooners' advice on freebie software has been excellent in my experience.

Thanks nooner, I will definitely check out the iexif program. I'm well aquainted with irfanview (everybody should be, IMO) as it is a great program. I'll add a couple more pictures that were kind of interesting after they were cropped a bit. Thanks again for all the advice.
