Hello all. I am fairly new to this forum and recently obtained a Pana FZ20. After spending some time lurking, ooohing and aaahing over many, many posts I felt it was time to benefit from the expertise within this group.

I am hoping for comments and suggestions, beefs & bouquets, even sticks and stones won't hurt me .

Lots of grey days here in the UK these days, green grass but not much else! After viewing hundreds (and hundreds more) photos in these groups though, I am managaing to look past my normal field of vision (left brainer here!) and find some interesting things to snap!

The first one looks out of focus and underexposed. It also has a purple tint, did you post process? #2 has blown highlights, but better focus. I noticed both were ISO 200, f2.8. 1/25 and 1/30. Seems to me that it must be pretty dark there even though they were shot mid-day.

I think both issues are the result of a misguided attempt to be anarteeeest! :-) I had a play in photoshop with both. Here are the originals, just resized this time.

Nice shoot #1.

in # 2 the subject is great, however it is overexposed. You can improve it with PS.

Thanks Msantos - will see if i can correct the exposure in PS. I may also just go back to that spot and try to get a better original as well. And nooner - looks like I best avoid the PP and concentrate on the original photo for the present. :-)

#1 looks better, but still has tint. Could be WB. #2 has blown sky and PS won't be able to save it. Here's #1 adjusted. 2cents.

Nooner, I can definitely see the difference now - yours looks much more natural.
