Thanks!

Unfortunately I always tend to have not enough light which leaves me shooting at high ISO. Am so happy about the shots my *ist DL2 gives me at ISO800 and ISO1600! What a difference to the Oly C770, where ISO400 shots are comparable to ISO3200 ones from the Pentax! (with the DL2 doing better even here at times)

So I tried a lot and am now at some easy routines for basic post-processing in the JPEG area which can be done in like 2-3 minutes on my PC. RAW is still very new to me so lot's to learn in that area.

My advise if you want to try a bit - I got PSP9 very cheap (already labelled Corel and has a ugly print dialog, but the rest is very usable). For me it is the most-bang-for-the-buck-all-around-tool.



I like the first shot - can you host the full image somewhere - would like to tinker around a bit on that since I had some nice forest shots last year and want to see if some of the tricks work on it?



Regards,
Th.

Thanks th I have PSP also called Coded Color got CD in a magazine book but usually start with Picassa to crop,straighten and adjust contrast and possibly sharpen then move on to CodedColor for fine tuning

The first shot on the thread was Kjell's but this was my bush original.

Have a nice play, and Happy New Year.
