I couldn't agree with you more John. When I see wonderful photos, that I would like to try or learn from, I always check to see if there is EXIF data about the pictures exposure andother settings. Unfortunately it isn't always listed
Great shot thank you for taking the time to post here and be an active member.
Btw, the details embedded into the photo you mentioned is it's metadata. There are programs that can be used to remove this data, or add to it when needed. All you have to do is google something along the lines of "Image metadata editor" Though i'm not too sure what would be the best one to use.
The programs are very small, so it'd be a quick download for sure. Hope that helps somewhat.
Gosh, I hope you don't move on... have been an admirer of your work for quite some time now... I apologize for not commenting more frequently...
As to the data about your camera, settings, etc., inside your image, that's the EXIF information. There are quite a few programs that you can use to view or edit this information. My current favorite is ACDSEE, available here: [link]
Well, overall the D90 is a much better performer in low light than the D70. The only thing this baby asks for is a good lens. My favourite is the 50mm f1.8 (cheap and great) or the f1.4 (more expensive, but better sharpness full open). Try it, and you'll love it, if it suits your photography style! I learned to take photos only with a 50mm, because I couldn't afford anything else, and today, guess my all around lens...
And for me, this black and white is superb, the contrast is great!
Thanks, I actually went out and bought the 1,4 lens, took a couple of cute backstage pictures with it, and then stupidly dropped it, since when it just won't perform. I guess I should give it in to have repaired .. actually, your words are a reminder and encouragement to do so .. many thanks.
