    ok well this is by no means on the same par as you guys with the expensive equipment but I like it so I thought I would share.

    I took this on a frosty morning last year with a cheap 6 Megapixel point and click.

    It is taken about 100 meters outside our front door on the path where I walk the dog:

    There are plenty of us who've used point and shoots for photos in this thread (or phones!) - some of my best shots are with a 3MP point and shoot (canon A70).

    Get yourself a copy of the GIMP or Paint.net and work on the photo on your computer and it'll be nicer (and I don't mean the obvious 'photoshop job' - it's simple corrective measures like adjusting levels and sharpening).

    All that stuff escapes me, any attempt I have ever made to improve a photo just makes it end up looking worse than when I started

    Re: Photo-a-day

    I am using a LCD TV as my PC Monitor I must say I am finding it hard to get the right levels Gamma wise. Looked at the websites offering calibration for montors (from black to white) and it shows my screen to be perfect obviuosly it isn't though.

    Will have a play later today see if I can improve things as it needs doing because it is spoiling my pictures and I assume if I printed these Photos all the wrongs would be evident..

    Just glad you guys said something

    Hehe OK, then there are some settings on your camera you can probably change to help a little, what is the model?

    TBH we no longer have that camera. I have an 8mp on my SGS2 and my wife has a 5mp on her Xperia Mini Pro so we never used the camera and got rid of it.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Lark, welcome to the group, you do have a good eye for a pic, that shot is pretty nice to me

    James (Orion), you might wanna consider reducing the size of your images too matey, try 1024 wide.
    Cheers, David

    can see it on both my screens - just about, it must be where you were trying to remove the noise from the image?

    a couple more shots taken a couple of days after the first one:
