D7k + 55-200mm VR and my 3 yr old CC please
Thank you all for your comments / advice. I will take them on board and make sure I consider them before my next shoot with my kid. Underexposed: well I'd set the camera to underexpose by -0.7 ev, as it was quite bright. I generally feel that my D7k results are too bright at 0ev. It maybe my monitor, but I view them on my mac, and my pc in lightroom and vnx2, and they look very bright. I am looking into calibration and all, but I just feel they look too bright, so in PP I slide down the exposure bar to minus a bit.
The following are the originals, exported as jpg from iphoto. (Shot in RAW originally No PP)
