they lack a bit of light, perhaps you can improve it a bit with PP?

No flash and I was trying to hold a light over it while taking pics :P I work with what I have. Plus.... I usually drop the exposure on a lot of my pics.... must be the way I see them :P They seem overly bright a lot of the time to me :P

Possibly..... but I keep it calibrated for the printing service I use. But most likely it is just me..... one of my eyes sees color differently also... is slight, but there. Maybe I will put together some test images to see what other folks are seeing in comparison.

..... or maybe your screen is too dark ;) lol

I think it's just because I don't often use flash and I tend to like to leave the image as close to the actual lighting as possible.... because that is how I saw it. I adjusted my camera a couple of months ago and rarely need to drop things down like I used to. I went and looked at your pics and they all seem spot on..... so I'm going to chalk it up as available lighting sometimes falls short.... and I'm weird about trying to get it as close to what I actually saw or going the opposite way and being just creative. I'm less of a technical photographer than most :P

I guess its best if you compare your images to everyone's else and not just mines (the problem can be in this side). If you still find them underexposed then they probably are.
but anyway, if you want to show them as they were (dark ambient) its a personal taste and we all should respect it :) photography isn't a science :)

The lighting was horrible.... but I've remedied that! I think ;) Built myself a flash diffuser/ring flash from some household items :P Seems to work nicely :) The bugs aren't sure about it....lol, a bit large and in their face :P Maybe I can fine tune that .....

Taken this evening ..... I'm pretty happy with it.... though I'm sure I can make it better. Was something I threw together so I could get some decent pics of these Dogbane Beetles before it started storming again. They were too pretty to pass up! :D

Adjusted this one a bit more..... I get rushed sometimes..... kids yelling, dogs barking...everyone needs me for this that or the next thing :P Sometimes I just try to get them good enough to throw up online so they don't get lost in the folders of forgotten images (Of which I have plenty already) ;)

Anyhow...better?
