test shots/new to K10D
Posted By: jfg69, 10-11-2007, 11:16 AM

I put some images up from this past weekend. I shot a few hundred on a day trip, mostly in auto bracket. At this point I feel like a deer in the headlights!
I put up some select images in a gallery and hope that I can get some feedback from you knowledgeable folks!

Gillette Castle

Thanks for looking!

Hi Jerry

Gillette's Castle was one of my favorite childhood/teenage haunts, our family went there frequently. Of all your shots, I like 351 and 360 the best. Generally speaking I find the middle of each of the 3 autobracket shots the best, at least to my liking. The other two seem to be a bit overexposed, especially the right hand shots.

NaCl(thanks for reminding me of some great times)H2O

Thanks for looking.
I was really just trying to get familiar with the camera, I think I set the auto bracket @ 1/3 or 1/2 stops. Maybe I should have gone a whole stop? I dont particularly care for any of them, but I lean towards the center shots as well.

When I get some time, I'll fire up CS3 and play around a bit and see what else I can do. Not sure exactly where to make changes, they seem OK out of the box, so to speak.

This was my second time to Gillette this year, previously with my Canon S40 P&S... just a "little" bit of an improvement!

All in all, tho - I have MUCH to learn!
