Wow! You can do some amazing things with (our) camera. There are a lot of likes and dislikes about it. I would love to hear how you got some of your shots. I never p.s. except for color filters and glows. Have any advise?

Thank you Richard =). Well, first let me say that I hate my (our :P) camera. I don't know what kind of advice I could give, except for practicing and taking hundreds of pictures. I should post pictures from only a year ago so you could see how much practice has helped me. Since our camera seems to be mean when it comes to certain lighting, I only take pictures outside or under very bright lights inside. That seems to be all the camera can handle without getting all noisy. As for PS, you should try using it more often. When I want to keep my pictures looking as real as possible, I only use basic adjustments, but some of the more extreme edits can be fun. Plus it is great for the creative process.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Nope, not photoshopped. It was just a wrinkled old cloth. I cut a piece out, clipped it up and looked through. What part did you think was photoshopped?

Maria...beautiful photograph, I saw it on the home page and it took my breath away!
you also have some very nice ones in your gallery!
You say you did not photoshop....are you saying you did not enhance it at all? The eyes are so bright and piercing in this and many of your photos, if you are not photoshoping them to bring them out, what are you doing? They are awesome. I would love to know how you get that look
