I just made the move from an All-In-One to a dSLR Nikon d70s.
Looking for some input on both composition and technique please.

I was really loosing detail/quality as I resized from 6Meg to 800k so please forgive me.

why don't you go ahead and make it smaller.. say 600 or 800 pixels at the long end.. as it is, it is too big for me to see enough of the frame without scrolling to pass any judgements..

Well it looks like your first attempt worked out wonderfully. This is an outstanding shot. I am using netscape, so it resizes it to fit the window, but at that size, many might not wait for it to download which would be too bad, because this is a great shot. Can't wait for the secong attempt.

Its a great shot, but even on my 19" at 1600x1200 at work I couldnt fit nearly everything in at once.

Hards, I just found out that if you drag the bottom right corner of the window to resize, the picture will automatically scale to fit with IE.

In IE, if you just hover over the photo with the mouse, you get a maximise/minimise button appear bottom right. Opposite corner to the 'save', 'print' etc options.
But I find it usually downloads full size, then resizes to fit automatically.

Zoso, I found a little contrast adjustment and ever so slight sharpening made this look a little better for me on screen. Just looked a little flat.

Really like the composition. Seems you are on the right track.

Overall though, a very good first shot with your D70s. Well done.

Beautiful shot. I'm looking forward to seeing many more as you get to know your new camera.

well i am running the avant browser, and i am sure i could change it to automatic image resize.. but for most applications that sucks.. sure i could get this to look alright, but i don't really want to have to change my browser settings for one post... if everyone posts at 800pixels on the long end, there is no problem..

but anyways,

its a great picture.. the composition is good.. i would boost saturation though, esp in the green channel and i would sharpen it up a bit..

i too am looking forward to seeing more.. at 800pxls though

Sorry about the size.
I reduced the file size but not the dimensions.
Next time I'll do both.

The orginal has better color saturation (trees are more green... clouds deep blue) but when I save it as a JPEG it becomes very "washed out". I am still trying to figure that one out.

Thanks for the comments.

I like your pict, however I don't like the tree cut at the top (and on bottom reflection), and the grass at the very bottom is a little bit distracting.

If you could re-shot, my personal opinion is to use a shorter focal.
