Default Book...

Could not sleep and the book I was reading not that interesting. Came back from the kitchen and saw it "fanned-out". Was hoping I could capture it better. Played with it in Picassa. ISO causing lot of noise. Can I change that in Picassa?
Hope to hear some ideas on composing and capturing "abstract" images like this properly.

i like the composition of #2, but its a bit too noisy, it would look nice if it were crisp and sharp, and maybe more lighting like the last one.

i would recommend not using Picassa for any photo editing ever. It is just not ... good. there is not a lot you can do with it, and what you can do, is sub par and gives you very little room to make the necessary adjustments.

that being said, i really like #3 and #5.

I don't know what the general thoughts are on it here but I use Paint.net as my free photo editor these days. The Gimp is also good.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not really into this post editing as yet. Still coming to grips with the camera. As soon as my pics get up to scratch I will invest in some decent software as well. Will play some more and rely on your feedback to try and improve! Cheers, M
