Hello All. I am new to posting on the message and a new member, although I have been surfing A.net for many years. I have one picture on A.net, and many that have been rejected. I have recently purchased a Nikon D200, but also realize that the camera is nothing without a user who knows how to use it. First, are there classes a person can take to really learn practical use of their camera? Next, I am attaching a picture that is fairly typical of the pictures I take. Any constructive criticism would greatly appreciated. Thanks for all your replies.

Dan

Motiv wise it would make it, the photo does look a bit dark and noisy, but I am not on my 'normal' monitor.

The best class to learn how to use your camera is practice!

Concerning your picture I'll have to agree with what Royal said: dark and a little grainy; in addition it's just too big which doesn't help the quality aspect. That's nothing that couldn't be saved though.
I had a quick try with it:

Should you need help with the edit don't hesitate to contact me.

I like the overall motiv as well. Although, you might want to consider not chopping off whatever that is on top of the fuselage. Nice shot, btw.

Thierry has fixed it up nicely dude. Try and upload something that looks like that. What will help you is also getting to know an editing process that works for you. That will assist with the darkness in this shot (correct the levels with reference to the histogram and you'll be sweet). I'd also try and sharpen it a little more and maybe reduce the noise.

I am guessing this was shot with an ISO above 100?

There is a video out that shows you how to use that specific camera. I recently got a Nikon D80 and later bought the video that addresses that camera. I found the video a great help.

Thank you all for your replies. I finally got most of my pictures on my new mac, where I have Photoshop Elements 4.0.
I am still getting to know that program as well. I tried some of the adjustments that you all spoke of. I brightened it up a bit and tried to reduce some of the noise. I also tried to reduce the size in 300dpi increments to get it near 1024x768.

I will attach it again and would like to see what you guys think. Once again, thank for your help as I try to figure out the fomula that gives my pictures the best chance of sucess of making the A.Net cut.
