    Thanks, all.

    Forrest, thanks I'm working on improving them. Not a New Years resolution, but I bought a book on processing RAW images. Now I just have to read it.

    Dawn, there is a lot of variety in Restrepia species in general and sanguinea in particular. Except for a few very distinctive ones, I only know what the label says and I keep getting different opinions and the same plant.

    What book did you buy, Marni? I want to improve my pictures too. My problem is a lighting and lens problem.

    Kyle, I bought "Camera Raw" from PeachPit Press to learn more about processing my images. I shoot in RAW format on a Canon with 8.2 megabites. After looking at Thomas' images I wanted to know what is so different. I already use the same lens and I love it. I'm happy with my lighting set up (I can tell you about it if you want). I'm told that having a higher megabite capture is not going to make a notable difference (not quite sure I believe that). So it must be something I'm doing or not doing. Are you shooting under lights? What camera do you use, lens? How do you process them?

    Thanks, Karen, I like the composition on it very much.

    I'm now up to page 35 in my camera book. It is much easier than the Mr. Bill book. I haven't fallen asleep yet.

    It's also particularly well lit! You can see the detail, and no shadows.
    I'm only up to 335 with Mr. Bill. SIGH.

    I have a canon Rebel. 8 MP. I use the lens that came with the cmaera. I have a long list of things to buy for myself before I treat myself to a new lens. I would like to hear more about you lighting setup, I'll post it in a new thread.
    About processing, I use photoshop to adjust the levels and sometimes the britghtness and contrast. I use flourescent lights to light the plants, so my pictures need a lot of adjustments because of the funky light.

    Are you shooting in Raw or just jpg? If you shoot Raw, you can adjust for lighting very easily. I'll wait for you other post.

    I don't shoot in RAW. I know its supposed to be better. Not sure why I've resited. Doesn't look like I'll get to posting a picture of my set up tonight. First thing in the morning.

    Even if you don't use RAW now, you should be able to set your camera to shoot both RAW and jpg at the same time. Then later if you want to process your images in RAW, you have it. It is extra storage, but well worth it.
