First trip with the K100D. All shots were taken with the kit lens, using the auto setting. I wanted to see how she performed without my help. All of the images were resized, but nothing more. It was a typical day in the Colorado high country for this time of year, with a few fluffly clouds in between periods of the kind of sunshine thatsoothes the soul. Doesn't hurt being 10,000 feet closer to the sun. If anything, most of the images are a touch underexposed, but the colors are spot on, and the sharpness is very good. I'm pleased overall.

I hope that the subject matter doesn't offend anyone. This place is one of the most serene settings I've ever experenced. I bring the family here every autumn. Personally, I've been visiting for over 30 years. It's one of the few places left unchanged by man over that period of time. The only changes here are at mother nature's hand. This place serves to remind me and my children that while life may have been 'simpler' then,it was also very unforgiving.In particular, the very younghad a tough go, and 40 something was a full life. This was mining country.

Certainly no offense with the subject matter here, my family is into old cemeteries also. I like the shot of the trail leading upwards. I think you could get away with making your posted pictures a little bit larger. Thanks for sharing your pics.

Colors are lovely in your photos, it looks like a very serene location.

As to sizes - I try to resize my pictures to around 700 pixels across when its a landscape aspect picture, and something like 500 pixels vertical if its portrait aspect. That leaves it big enough for everyone to appreciate your pictures, but not too big for those with monitors with less resolution.

This was my first outing with the kit lens. It is not bad but I purchased a 16-45mm and do nt use it much now.
