The pix look dark and ominous, "It was a dark and storm night. . ." HA!

Yeah- I guess they could use some enhancing. It was overcast.

This is one time when I would use PhotoShop or something similar. Otherwise I do not like that program -- you can manipulate too many things. Really digital image manipulation rather than photographic skills.

Have you looked at PhotoShop Elements? Low price and pretty decent.

It is not that PS is a bad program. I just do not think it really is photography. More in line with digital image manipulation.

To me, photography happens in the camera not in a computer.

wafan, I did a lot of darkroom work back in the day and I see ps as less hassle and non carcinogenic darkroom work. To me, photography is both "film" and "print" work.

I agree with the print work portion. It is the "EFX" PS does that I mostly disagree. Heck, I teach it in my photo classes!

But, I expect the kids to have a minimal mastery with the camera first. PS can only do so much to fix what is really just a bad photo.
