    Oh, I'm having fun --

    Just having a little time to fool around with the NIK software --

    How long does it take to become proficient at this?? So much to explore . . .

    NIK software seems to be an extension of the in-camera functions. Be careful of the batch processing capabilities though.

    I've never done batch processing . . . I never get enough of a batch of good pictures out of a bunch to use it!

    If you can find a good subject and you've worked out the exposure, shutter speed, focus issues then taking a few dozen of the same subject (different angles) should be a standard procedure. I could never get the perfect composition after only one shot.

    Hi John,

    Interesting you should say that, that's how I work too, but I do wonder if we aren't both wrong*

    It is noticeable that the most successful 'togs here, for example; the likes of Donald and Steve (Wirefox) - who both recently expressed their methods of putting lots of thought into to it on site and coming away with just a tiny number of correctly exposed and composed images.

    Admittedly that approach is going to be more relevant to what they shoot than some of the stuff I do (e.g. wildlife) where the subject is often beyond our control, but I am aware that personally, I still tend to be far too 'prolific' (read "careless") when shooting static subjects like landscapes and architecture too

    I must get that under control if I want to improve

    Sorry Elise, I just "digressed" your thread.
