Other than that- I've got some of the technical side of "taking" photos down. I'm not good by any means, but I can usually come up with a few passable shots. I really struggle in the post-processing department. I rarely have time to play, and when I do- I end up with photos that look extremely over-processed. Any tips for us there?
Sorry Dad, I didn't see your post/question. I'm usually using Topaz "Fusion Express 2", "Adjust 4"

Joyce and I are headed to the mountains again this year. I can't wait to get to the Tetons and Yellowstone again. That scenery is so spectacular you don't even have to be a good photograph to get beautiful shots.

Here's one of my favorites from 2004. It was taken at Oxbow Bend on the Snake River. I no sooner snapped this photo when some canoeist came paddling into the scene and the mirror reflection was gone.

That's beautiful scenery. I like your composition with the bank leading from front to back. Takes the eye right along with it.

Thanks Scott, that's the beauty of digital photography, I just keep shooting until something good turns up.

I need a little help deciding. I was planning on jumping (back) into the SLR market after years of using cheapy digitals. I was all set on taking the plunge and getting a D7100... However I'm not thinking I may want to sacrifice the higher mega pixel count and get a medium format... What say ye, ladies and gentleman?

I’ve always considered medium format to be the realm of professional photographers. The cost is hard to justify even for most serious hobbyists. If it were me, I’d buy the Nikon D7100 and use the rest of the money to buy an RV. Just saying.

Keep in mind that I’m just a point and shoot guy that just takes snapshots so my opinion is probably worthless.

I'm just a hobbyist (and not very good from what I've seen here!), but I do love my D7000.
