Well there was finally something worth taking pictures of yesterday with my DSLR camera. A thunderstorm rolled through early in the evening, just as the sun was setting. I’m glad to see that I’m getting closer to being able to get the color saturation that I like, but I still have A LOT to learn. Especially with focus and composition. Although these are pretty colorful, they still don’t “pop” like I would like them to. I could probably fool around with them in Photoshop, but I’m not really sure what to do or how to do it, or know when it’s appropriate. Any suggestions, anyone? These were all taken on full manual, at ISO 200 between about f4 and f8, and the shutter speed was set around 1/80. And as usual, I flipped back and forth between various white balance settings and a couple of other things in the camera. I’m sure the lens I have is probably not ideal for landscape pics. It seems best suited for close up portraits and whatnot, but it’s all I got for now. Enjoy!
