Thanks
Yeah that's probably why I don't like it so much, it's just kinda average Tata though!

I took out every other light source in the room, so the only light is actually from the candle itself. Since its only a small flame, it only reaches so far down itself.

Then I just sliiiiiiightly desaturated it.

I need some advices. I don't know if regular posters in here have noticed, but I've stopped really contributing recently....because I've had issues with my camera and have not sought to fix them. I have a canon powershot sx40 hs, and ever since...or even maybe before...I started playing around with the ISO (I think I was trying to shoot water or something)....I can NOT take bright scenes the colours that are there in front of me. It seems to always want to over compensate for the brightness and dulls it right down....rendering my camera as one that people don't want to have at special events anymore. I've fiddled and fiddled and fiddled and I can not fix it, it even does this in auto mode. Sometimes does it at night scenes when I'm using the flash. I used to pride my camera in being able to take lovely portraits in bright sunshine settings. and I just ugh. I don't know what to do.

But here are some photos I took at Christmas. These seemed to only work because they were on a pre-set filter which must of darkened the images enough for the camera's liking anyway

Tegan, can you send me an example of a picture that does exactly what you describe to be the problem? Then I can have a look at the exif data and see if I can make some recommendations.

I was bored last night but too lazy to go and shoot somewhere so I decided to do some editing of pictures from Budapest last summer. I'm pleased with this one:

Amazing details! Photos like that often end up being over-/underexposed in some areas, but this is all very nicely balanced.

+1 to that! If I would have to really point something out it's that the horizon is only slightly crooked, easily fixable. Can't complain though as this is a hand held shot probably! Nice

Thank you too. Did you notice the crookedness with the naked eye? It was a handheld shot but I rotated and cropped it before anything else, thought I'd got it right but I just checked it with rulers and it's like 3 pixels out

I have a DSLR but I'd still consider myself a photography 'n00b'. What's a HDR?

Ahh, I was going to do that and only remembered this morning. I could just cheat I guess, especially since I've just sat around and done nothing these first few days anyway. I think I have too many days like that to make it interesting though.

I'm not sure if scary or awesome but yes, noticed that with the naked eye

It's short for High Dynamic Range, a method where photos with different exposures are blended into one. (http://www.stuckincustoms.com/hdr-tutorial/ - this has a pretty nice explanation for it, if you scroll down a bit.)

So if you take three shots of the same scene:
1. normal
2. underexposed
3. overexposed

and then blend it together, the general image will come from 1, the brighter areas are taken from 2 (so the sky isn't too bright and you actually see the clouds etc) and darker areas from 3 (so instead of having a tree silhouette you can see the colours on the tree etc). This way you can turn a photo with near-white sky and dark trees into one colourful shot where you can see everything properly.

It can be awesome when done well and really terrible if you over-do it.

It's like the botched plastic surgery of photography. Always looks artificial and ridiculously over processed. Saw a photo blog of a Chernobyl trip and the HDR effect cheapened the photos a great deal.

@Bobbles: are you Kyle of Digitalrev?

Anyway, something I've been wondering which you might be able to answer Bobbles, you use greycards etc right? How does that work in the processing of the images?
I know you take a greycard pic so you can set it after, but do you compare it next to the screen or is there a value you should set?
