I took the photograph whilst visiting Chester Zoo, earlier this year, with my family. This was one of the first photographs I took with the Fuji Finepix S1000fd camera that my wife had given to me for a Christmas gift.

it is dark probably because you shot it against a light sky it is difficult to make out either mother or baby, if you put it in photoshop or other editing program you will be able to improve the picture.Also if possible seek help from someone with experience and take on board what they say,your father for one. Neil and other members of the family.
Unfortnately with compacts the control is limited, and even if they have over rides, you usually have to dig into menus to get at them.
Here the sky has caused considerable under exposure of the ape, and he/she could also do to be rather a lot sharper. Back to the drawing board I fear with this one. If you are using a longer zoom you must support the camera as rigidly as possible - because it looks sharp on the LCD/viewfinder does not mean the exposure will be.
Thank you to all of you for taking the time to look at my picture and offering constructive suggestions that I will try and hopefully my next picture will show improvement Neil you are right this was shot against a light sky. Thank you for the welcome to EPZ Focus_man, you are correct in saying my camera was set to 'Auto' when I took the shot, I like what you have achieved with the picture using PSE; I do have Picasa 3 and PSE 6, however, as my picture suggests I am new to photography and have yet to learn how to use these programmes correctly. Paul your are spot on about the picture looking sharp on the LCD/viewfinder and not turning out that way when downloaded. I appreciate any advice on how to achieve better photographs using my S1000fd.
