Nice image Kayleigh! But feel it could be improved by a slight contrast and saturation boost, but only work on the red, yellow, and green channels. Still gets a vote!

Thanks Trv,
I have only had the camera just over a week and was still getting to grips with the settings I was lucky it came out at all, I need to know what settings I need to use as I know these were way off.
I did something in colours again not sure what to do so moved the contrast and brightness a bit and levels the trees had no colour as they have not come into leaf yet its still a bit early. I will have a play and see what happens.

Hi Kayleigh
First looking at your Exif info f5.6 does not give a great depth of field, the ISO at 100 gives the best quality but slows down the shutter speed, if possible try to use a tripod and set to f16 or greater for maximum depth of field, if you have Photoshop go to the hue and saturation button then click the top button, this gives you the individual colour channels, pick red then middle saturation button slide to right do not go overboard, then the same to yellow and green channels, this should just add the extra colour needed, hope this helps and only my oppinion!

Yes thank you Trev, its lovely to get advice am trying to remember what settings I need for different situations when out and about and failing.
I need to take a few notes as its hard to see what you have got until its uploaded onto the pc as on the camera they look OK.
I do have photo shop elements 8 but tend to use the gimp as its easier but not very professional.

Hi Kayleigh
Just remember depending on how fast the lens is say f1.8 will give a very small depth of field, if you take a face and focus on the nose, the eyes would be out of focus, f5.6 the nose and eyes would be in focus, f8 the whole head is in focus, f16 head and backgound to a limited scence would be in focus, f22 or greater most of the image would be in focus, this is a rough guide. On your camera you can enlarge the image with the zoom tool to see what is sharp.

Thank you Trev, that's a great help.
