These were all snapshots, but i've tried to make something of them through PP. If i failed, let me know. :hs:
1: I debated cropping out the M113, and the arm to the left, and opted to keep it due to the otherwise sourceless shadow on the ground

2 Just cropped much closer, and off-set the subject from the center from the original some level adjustments.

3 Level, and bright/contrast adjustments only... wish i could go back and re-shoot this :hs:

4 Took a boring snapshot, and went with an old-school ww2 look... works for me, but...

5 Again closer cropped, and tried to PP glaring highlights in the background, and lighten up the subject a bit more.

6 Severely cropped down on a distant shot. placed the subject far to the right of center, when i had shot him dead center. again i went for a high contrast look here. Added a filter effect to darken the sky a touch, and bring out the faint clouds, otherwise it was completely blown out.

7 Another pure snapshot. cropped tight. when i converted to grayscale, i used more than just the "convert to grayscale" button to get higher contrasts again.

Luckily the canon's 400 iso looks grainy as fuck which accented this picture nicely. :rofl:

Seriously? nobody grabbed my bait?
Nikon user? :hsugh: I'm not gonna sackride Canon... i bought the 350D over the D40 because of the Megapixel count... nikon was $50 bucks more, for only a 50% bump over my sony p&s... so i went with the canon. I haven't used DSLRs enough to develop an opinion... that and i'm somewhat familiar with them from my previous Rebel G & X film cams. :hs:

:hs: Just trying to take a small jab at a few canon users. Usually Nikon is the one known for grain (older cameras anyway), I figured saying Canon is grainy would spark johny-benchmark to retaliate.

:rofl: troll. I'm doing a little shooting at one of the local tourist traps around here... when i'm done i'm gonna give my buddy a call, and see if i could borrow his D40 for a couple of days, and go back to the same area, just to see if there's a noticeable difference in image quality... settle the shit for myself instead of the sackriders of one camp or the other. :hsugh:
