Hi all, just received my new DS and Tamron 18-200 lens yesterday. Got to play around with it this evening. This is a shot I tried in the wifes rose garden. This is my first digital SLR moved up from a Nikon 990, (WOW) what a difference. What do Y'all think of my first attempt?
Thanks Barry

Hi and welcome from another relative newcomer (and DSLR newbie). That looks like a beautiful rose and the focus is good. The center looks a little overexposed to me but it may just be the light color of the inner rose petals. I don't know if taking the shot at a slight angle rather than straight on would make a difference. Also, understand that I am really new to this too, there will be far more knowledgable heads than mine to weigh in and hopefully give you better feedback. This is a great place to hang out and learn!

Thanks Tim
I was in the shade and flash went off. Do think that could have caused it to wash out in the center or I could have been to close.

welcome to the forum barry.. this is overexposed 1-2 stops. try taking the same thing but adjust you flash output. turn cam on, press then menu button, press the 4 way controller up one time. here you can adjust the flash exposure. press the 4 way to the right and then move down to set the compensation. try the same pic at -1, and -2 ..

again, welcome to the forum,
roy

Welcome on board.
You have a very brilliant start in posting to his forum. Some finetuning may be needed as Roy has said. Keep posting. You are starting to explore its potential.

Thanks for the input all. That was an attempt in RAW, I tweeked it some more in Photoshop and made it a lot better but its still over exposed. Maybe I can try again tomorrow after work. I know 1 thing after only 2 days with this camera, and I am a noob I really love this thing.
