Default First Pics from K10D

Well, I finally got to go out and take a few pictures! These were lightly edited and resized for posting here. I was really uncomfortable from the humidity, so I just snapped some shots and headed back to the house and A/C as soon as I could without paying any attention to composition. I'm going to read the Lantern Guide a little more, tonight, and hopefully have some much better photos to upload over the weekend. Be gentle, LOL.

Very nicely done - exposure is fine and I really like the last one. The evening lighting on the fountain (I looked up Henry D. Cogswell on Wikipedia since I was curious what your subject was) is also very nice. And what's the BIG exhibit?

G'Day from down-under and welcome, these are very nice first shots.
I like the BIG shot, it certainly has something to say.

Rodney.

Thank you! I had to look up Cogswell, also, LOL. But, I did learn something, so that's always a good thing. The BIG Exhibit is an exhibit where they (the National Archives) are going to display certain documents and other things at their full sizes. Here is a link for more info. I didn't read much of it, I have to admit, because I'm really running out of steam quickly.

Thank you Rodney! I like the BIG shot because I like the juxtaposition of the "little" people under the big BIG Exhibit sign. When I was walking past and saw this scene, it made me giggle a little bit.

LadyRo,
Very nice starter pictures, and the only criticism I'd make (Mean't constructively) is that you seem to have a list to the right ... it shows in all shots, easily corrected in PP, but best avoided when you shoot, it happens with all of us on occasion, just a minor point to watch for. Enjoy the K10, and happy shooting. ... Jack.

Hi Jack! Thanks for the input. I noticed the tilt to the right, too... I will definitely be mindful of that from now on.
