    While you have some nice subject shots and framing computerman, the majority are veeeery soft. What are you shooting with?

    Re: Photo-a-day

    While that's not the sharpest lens, I think even it can be sharp at web resolutions, so it's more a processing/resizing/sampling issue than a hardware one. What are you using to resample for web resolutions?

    On my screen they also look a tad underexposed (they're not, in a manner of speaking if you take the whole frame into consideration, but again for the web they could do with a bit more contrast and the subject being a little brighter). You could use a more subject weighted exposure mode, or more simply adjust in post process after.

    Just matrix metering on the d3200, the lens hunts in then out for birds. I do find the matrix metering on the D3200 inaccurate, changing to spot makes it worse. No post processing. My original jpegs are about 10 megabytes, photobucket does downsize alot. i use the 50mm 1.8 prime for flower shots, a 35mm 1.8g and a 16-85 vr.

    kick Photobucket in the nads and shift over to Google+

    also, you're shooting in camera JPEG? turn the sharpening up in the menu..

    If you've got time I'd reconsider the lack of post-processing. The electronic capture of a scene is so distorted from how we perceive scenes that there's a lot of processing going on somewhere, and cameras aren't all that clever (in fact the more 'serious' the camera the less they tend to do).

    Nikons tend to err on the soft side (which is to some extent a processing decision on how much to exaggerate the local contrast to fool our eyes into thinking it's sharp), you should be able to adjust this in camera (not the same thing as setting it to 'fine'), or use post process. Whenever you downsample you should also sharpen in software, photobucket may not be doing this at all (or not very well).

    But if you can afford a lens for a DSLR, then you can afford some decent software to work on the photos after taking them - something like Lightroom can be set up to batch process photos to fairly good presets and output a range of sizes correctly sharpened for the web. There are free alternatives as well.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Nothing compared to you lot, but then it's often 6 months+ before my camera gets pulled out! Really should get practicing, plus look at proper post processing rather than a crop here and there with some levels changed slightly.

    The first should be fairly easy to guess for you lot, and the second was Maidan Nezalezhnosti on Saturday.
