Took these photos the other week. I have only cropped the pics with no PP.

How can they be improved?

Is it worth upgrading my FZ20to the FZ30 or going straight to DSLR next year(Nikon D70 or Canon 350)?

Hi,

the pics area bitoverexposed.

They can be improved with a little bit PP (sorry for that:G)

and you can set your camera to exposure-correction -2/3 EV

Nice spider !

greetings

Klaus

Klaus is correct, however I believe his post-processing job to be slightly excessive - they now look underexposed. Just my .02


However, great shots still - that spider shot in particular is very good!

Thanks for the help.

I will be taking more pics of that spider (lives behind my garage) when the weather clears a bit and I will be using my tripod & timer this time. I will try and get the picture a bit sharper as the legs at the bottom of the screen are a bit blurred...

I have also set my camera to -2/3 EV for future use too

Yes, just test the -2/3 EV, and get your best personal correctionaround this area.

You also can set yourcamerato spot-metering to get a good result.

greetings
