Bentleysmom, you get such great shots!

Since reading "Understanding Exposure" a few weeks ago (great book, recommended from another forum member), I've been using strictly manual settings. It's helped tremendously in my understanding of the varying results with different apertures, shutter speeds, etc., but I've had mixed results. As you say, practice, practice.

I have a question for you. The exif info indicates that you are using aperture priority. Is that the setting you generally use?

Nice shot B.M. I love the expression of aggravation. If I may suggest a little more contrast and darkening to bring out more depth. Here's a quick example of what I mean

Hi all, Thanks for your comments and constructive critism. Hiroshi, You are absolutely right about the contrast and darkening. I appreciate you pointing that out to me. You have such a good eye. Thanks for looking and commentingand making the picture better! bentleysmom

That's a really good shot with nice detail. How close were you to get that much detail?

tcook, I took that picture at the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine, Fl. There re so many places to take pictures in St Augustine....I have hardly begun. The Alligator Farm has birds and other reptiles. I don't remember exactly how far away I was from that particular bird. ....maybe between 15-25 ft. Sometime you can get real lose to the birds...but they like to turn away from you as you get ready to shoot the picture. lol I sent you a picture of the "birdwalk" Notice the "Southern Logs" Florida Alligators in the water not related to your 'northern mountain crocodiles" lol bentleysmom
