Ok, why is it when I post the image to the site it looks so much darker? Nothing like what I uploaded.
Had to use a hosting site for it to look right.

i am guessing the original was over the file size limit and the forum resized it. the forum resizes at a very high jpeg compression, which can really wreck image quality.

Beautiful photo Tony!
It could be just my monitor (I know I need to calibrate it) but, the reds look a tad over saturated.

BTW, I always use a photo hosting site to post my photos here for the reason Hards80 mentioned above.

No they are. I had the saturation up a bit in the camera.

I find that I prefer my camera set at natural - it's usually easier to add saturation than it is to get it right taking it out. But I like your picture.

Photobucket will resize your picture also - I got frustrated with it after a while (though there are worse free sites out there). I now use a photo hosting site I pay for and am much happier. I can upload a full sized photo if I want to and the site won't resize or compress it.
