    A few shots from my 2004 trip to Paris

    Here are a few pics that are as good as Haf's...haha, who am I trying to kid. I'm a long, long way off getting my photo's to Haf's standard. Anyway, these were taken with my old Kodak 3MP which was fully automatic and had no manual settings. White balance was a joke, as it would never work properly. I've adjusted levels and contrast in Photoshop to try and make them a bit more respectable.

    As you can see, Haf was right about the hazy conditions when taking photo's around midday. The first 2 were taken from the top of Notre Dame, and the 3rd is....well, Notre Dame itself.



    This is the one that made me think Haf took his from the top of Notre Dame.


    Cheers,

    No worries, a point&shoot camera can not compete with a pro-grade full frame dSLR by any stretch of imagination Moreover, processing jpeg images isn't very effective mostly because even the most basic exposure adjustments are limited, as opposed to processing a RAW image file.

    Yeah, I would love to go back with a full frame DSLR and the little bit of knowledge I have gained over the past couple of years. It is amazing how much more control you have over the image when editing it in RAW compared to JPEG. My point & shoot camera was really quite bad as it was one of the first 3MP cameras. My friends camera was miles better, and it was a P&S as well.
