These look like you've been doing this for years. Love #'s 3, 4 and 5.

Those are all nice shots! If I had to choose a favorite it would be #5.

They're all great shots, I must go into the woods soon and see what's around. Some may disagree, but I think your pics would benefit from a small amount of sharpening. The USM settings I've found to suit the K100D for 100% viewing or a resize for the web are 0.6 radius, 4 clipping and then adjust the amount to look right, try 100 or so.

they're fantastic, especially like the firs waterfall photo.but they all seem very soft to me, I think they could use a little sharpening. it's very nice when all foreground details in shots like that just jump at you.

How would I go about sharpening the shots? Do you mean in post editing, or a different way I should have had the camera set? I do have the sharpness bumped up one notch already.

what aperture did you use? at f16 everything should be pin sharp with any lens, even without increasing sharpening in camera.

these are fantastic firt time shots
i would be happy with them


more depth of field may have paid of with some photos where the foreground is close
the smaller the f stop the more you get in focus
also a wider angle lens will get more depth of field for a given f stop

Thanks for those tips. I'll have to try playing around with that next. I'm learning in baby steps.
