The weather was rubbish  Sad

Yup. You are right on that. The pictures are not far behind because of it. They are all soft, or blurry, and underexposed. I would wait for better weather to practice with. You will be better off in the long run.

I'm afraid not. To be honest, it really isn't worth going to the airport on days like today. In this sort of weather your photo's will not be worth it. Better waiting till the weather is nicer. Choose a day when the sun is out.  Smile

Tom, "better" is in the eye of the beholder in this case. As to "making" them "better" after the fact, you're asking the wrong person. You can make them better if you re-shoot them properly in better light, yes.

Tom,

I know it must be exciting taking your DSLR out to MAN for the very first time, I was exactly the same!  Wink

However, taking good photographs is all about knowing your equipment more than anything and knowing the environment you are taking pictures in and this takes practice! Before you try and upload anything go out and learn how to use your camera blindfolded! Get to know your camera inside out, back to front and upside down lol.  Smile

Sorry, but the weather really was against you.

None of those shots will make the cut.

Some days, it's better to stay home ...

Also how can I stop the camera and lens/glass getting wet from the rain.

Because all those shots that I have shown you, we taken in the pooring rain.

Yes if it's raining I use a carrier bag to stop the camera getting wet! But not for stuff I would upload to airliners lol. 

For motor rally pics and stuff it is necessary!

Phil means the quality of the shots are 4.1 MP. Check the main menu of your 350 and look for the Large image mode (the one with image having a fully curved side, you see what I mean) or shot raw. Did you see the edits?

Tom, what EDDL wanted to say is: why dont you shoot at highest resolution?

Assuming the pictures above are originals straight out of the camera, you appear to shoot in Medium (M) mode. Enter your camera menu and choose Large-Fine (L) as picture size and quality. This will have advantages when you edit your photos, give you better quality and comes in handy if you want to make prints one day...

EDIT: Looks like the others were faster  Wink

Oh, OK, I'll check that again, before I use it, when I go to AMS in April. Big grin

Yeh, I've seen them, Thanks for that  Wink

And I've uploaded the Alitalia one, to see if it will get past the screeners.  crossfingers   crossfingers

Unedited? Not a chance. I'd really wait until you get a sunny day. Right now your ambition is overriding your experience; there's really no point in uploading these until you've a firm idea what you're doing.

You've got a long road ahead of you, learn some basic techniques and you'll be okay.



It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

Sorry Tom, but you have NO chance. As the others have said, take your time, learn about the camera and look closely at the photos on the site.
