What would make this pic better?
Jun 10, 2009

Please help! I was really disappointed with this picture. I think it could have been a great one, but the color seems horrible, and it just seems so grainy. The light was low, so I screwed on the 35mm 1.8 and opened it up to f/2.8 to avoid using the flash. I just don't know what else I could have done. And the color just seems so orange-ish. I'm mainly unhappy with the background (Aunt Heather, etc); when I crop just baby and botle, the colors and sharpness are ok.

Side note: I just purchased an SB-600 and diffuser from Amazon out of desperation.

D40
35mm 1.8 AF-S
Aperture Priority
f/2.8
1/30 sec
Auto ISO
ISO 1400
Taken in JPEG mode. Only PP is "Auto Color" in Picasa.
