Thank you both very much for still helping me out! I don't have some kind of Photo-Club around to ask. That's why I'm happy with your nice and kind help!
Well you can see my gear in my profile. I alway use the D30 and the tele-lens.
I tried everything from automatic to manual. No matter if P-mode or Tv or Av the results never satisfy. If they look fine on my camera display I can be sure that they'll be to dark at my home monitor which is indeed crap. It's running at 100% contrast and 100% brightness to make things usable.
I really don't know what to do.
The tele-zoom was about 300€ (new, guaranty etc) and the camera isn't to cheap as well.
How much more money do I have to invest for being able to edit my pics in a way that improves my results?
I need a new monitor for my PC
I need some sensor cleaning,
maybe a better graphic card (I'm unsing a Sapphire Radeon 9600 PRO ATLANTIS),
PhotoShop and so on.
How should I afford all this stuff? I know it's not only the hardware but also the monkey (me) behind the camera...
I also asked some CDG
spotters to help me out via PM
on a.net but as usual for french guys nobody answers. Maybe I can get a little help at FRA
. I already asked in another thread.
The size is the original. I used only 1440 pixels. Next time I'll change that into a higher size.
Maybe this one helps to find the money's mistake?
As you see I really try to improve my results. It's quite some work to copy and paste all the pics, upload them on photobucket, put them on here and do the same with my windows-screenshots from the camera-settings. Hopefully it turns out soon.
Once again THANK YOU FOR
YOUR HELP AND
