Greetings all,
Located at the base of Michigan's Thumb, northeast of Flint, I bought my K100D Super a year ago after about 10 years of digital point and shoots. Feels great to be back with SLR and even better to be able to experiment far more than when I was a poor seminarian shooting film on my P3n.

Below is a pic from a balloon glow in Frankenmuth, MI on 1/24/09. Shot with the kit zoom lens, a Cokin star filter, and a bit of color adjustment, using the highlight on the fron quarterpanel of the van at lower left as the white point.


And here is the same image tweaked in iPhoto 09 with edge blur and sepia effect.

Welcome to the forum. I like your balloon shot, it's a little OOF but I think it works like that.

I didn't notice the OOF in iPhoto, but its quite apparent along with the grain from 1600 iso if I recall correctly. I'm sure I shot in auto-focus and probably program mode so somewhere in the photo is tack sharp, but you're right. I can't see it.
