"My brand new Nikon D5000 on a test drive" Sun 23-May-10 09:19 AM by beyond_horizon
I have been reading the posts on this forum for quite sometime. Thanks for the contribution of the members for whom I could take the judicious decision of purchasing my DSLR. I am a recent proud owner of a Nikon D5000.
Yesterday we had a sparkling sunny day.
Me and my wife were leisurely spending our afternoon at a lookout point near the Airport. I also took my new Nikon D5000 for a test drive.
Took several picture of birds. Uploading two shots of two different species for your criticism, comments & suggestion.

Welcome to Nikonians! Congratulations on your new D5000! Nice images! Adding a little positive exposure compensation in the first image would bring out details in the shadows. The key is using enough Exp Comp to bring out the detail without blowing out the highlights (light areas) by using too much Exp Comp. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
