hello from florida

Having retired i have recently gotten back into photography.
Its a new challenge to be working with a DSLR , but the good side is its forced me to learn how to use the basics in Photoshop.

some of my pics are posted on a wix site, suggestions always appreciated, as this camera has a cranky side to it lol

welcome to the forum.
You have some nice photos posted on your site (esp. the nature macros).
Nice "family members" you have (esp. the Dobermann). I had a Rottweiler, from puppy age until he died, 11 years.

I have to say though that I disagree with what is written on your "about me" page (on your site) cosidering the K-30.
It is by no means an entry level DSLR and compared with the EOS 700D, it walks all over it (talking about photo here).
I find the color rendition to be very good and the Auto-WB is also very good.
Now comes something I cannot understand: You really think the K-30 blows out whites?
I find this camera underexposing a bit and excellently preserving the highlights.

blow outs

yes, I do think its the camera. maybe I just got a goofy one. It does some goofy things like the ISO getting stuck at 200 and no being able to change it in ant setting without resetting the camera.
I did consider the sigma lens might be a little high contrast.
The snowy egret on the site was so blown out, i had to use photoshop's highlight/shadow and to its limit to gain any feather detail.
I will try and find a blown out and post it soon
