Re: What's wrong with my 20D?

I've readthe first few (useless) responses, but not most of what is in between.

Your first shot is undrexposed.

Why? Perhaps your meter read the bright grass in the foreground, and stopped the lens dpown more than was really necessary.

I think you are right to be concerend about the quality. If this was typical, I'd be annoyed too.

I'm going to go back later and read the various messages, but in the meantime... have you looked in the manual for some way to go back too all the original settings inside the camera? There's some sort of "return to default" setting. I think that your contrast and color settings inside the camera are screwed up (in addition to the underexposure of the first sample shot)

It's not you, and it is probably the camera right now, but fixable.

About a polarizer... good idea, but without a polarizer you still should have better shots.
