Question Frog at work.

Ok this wee fellow jumped out when i was at work(Yes ive stated taking my camera everywhere.)

The 1st one im very happy with.

The 2nd,3rd and 4th i messed around with the settings to try and learn.

The last 3 pictures had the macro on and also the flash set to fill in??

Would anybody like to take the pictures and touch them up and explain to me what they did with them in easy understanding beginners language please.

I have downloaded a free program called gimp and picasa.

Re: Frog at work.

I like the first shot a lot - it has a lovely fresh quality about it. The other are all spoiled by camera shake, unfortunately.

I would consider the first one for Picture of the Day but it's not in the DPNow gallery.

Re: Frog at work.

the first one is nice indeed but others I'd say out of focus rather than camera shake but it will come in time

Kev.
Simply click on "Galleries" and you'll be taken automatically to your own gallery space.

When you've clicked on Galleries, it'll take you to the gallery home page and you'll see an "Upload Photos" link top right of the grey strip. Click on that upload photos link and just navigate to the picci on you local PC, upload it and you'll find it'll upload to your 'member gallery' by default.
