UPDATE: MS Office Picture Manager did a better job at brightening the photo than Vista image editor did...still obviously noisy tho It came out very dark and with loss of a lot of detail...??? I made it brighter in windows Vista image editor/viewer... Nikon D40 18-135mm 3.5-5.6G ED 1/60 f - 5.6 ISO 800 no flash (not an option in this circumstance) auto white balance image size - small, JPEG fine (resized a bit for upload) matrix metering please don't laugh at me, i want suggestions...this shot looked good on my camera LCD, but is very dark and lacking detail on my computer screen. i was zoomed in pretty far, so that is the smallest f-stop I had. is it out of focus? i was manually focusing on the dude...i thought i had him ???
