I need to stay out of the buy/sell forum. It's burning a hole in the wallet...

The railroad is doing some track maintenance close to where I live. I just noticed last night while I was working and thought, "look at all the pretty lights!"

I went back to photograph the equipment after work this morning and thought the drizzling rain ruined my shots.

This is a crop. There is a ton wrong with it, most especially all of the noise. I shot it at ISO 1600, and probably should've used 400 or maybe 800.

ISO 1600
f/5.6
.4 sec
+1.3 Exp (bracketed shot)
79 mm

QUOTED IMAGE


A little PP besides the crop, but not much. Sharpness, and maybe a little color saturation, or not. I"m tired and can't recall...

Thanks for looking.

When I first saw the picture I thought Wow! I didn't notice the noise right away and the rain and drizzle really added a lot to the picture (IMO). I think what makes a good picture is your first reaction to it not sitting back and over analyzing it.

Went out today and did my first obligatory duck shots :D Also had a special visitor fly over. As always I am open to suggestions since I'm very new to this.

All pictures taken with my 55-250mm EF-S F4-5.6 IS

It's true. Ducks and Cats are mandatory for amateur photographers. :p

I can see why too. Looks like a lot of good practice since they are easy to approach and some are sitting and some are moving. I took about 200 pictures today just playing with all the settings. I think I will go back again tomorrow :o

Lol awesome! Was that with your 55-250 lens? I have only had mine for one day but I love it. I was unhappy at first because all the pics were coming out blurry but then I realized it was the cheap Sunpak UV filter I put on the front. Took that off and now everything is nice and sharp.

Yea. The 55-250 is a really good lens for the money. My problem at first was that I had all the focus points active and I was using AI Focus. I was getting really inconsistent shots as far as focus goes. I switched to using only the center focus point and One Shot. Not ideal for action photos but for ducks it should be fine.

I think POTN is very friendly to us amateurs. There are other less amateur friendly sites that are really full of them selves with NO sense of humor. I wont mention any names *ahem --DPReview-- ahem*

You know I didn't even think to try that. Well I know what I'm doing in the morning :lol:
