On the people shots... Do you try to adjust WB in camera? I find it easier to just shoot RAW, auto WB, and then adjust in post. It was really tough for me to adjust in camera and then I'd spend too much time fumbling around with camera settings rather than shooting the moment.
As far as the people go, yeah... I just set the WB to Sunny/Shade/whatever... I don't constantly adjust usually. I had just been shooting in JPG, but I recently switched to both. I've never messed much with Post-Processing, so it's another new thing for me. Will take some learning. My computer is currently setup running Ubuntu exclusively, so I'm stuck with GIMP (not bad, but not the greatest)... I need to set it up to dual boot with Windows as well, so that I can use the copy of CS4 that I have - although I've heard great things about Lightroom. Either way, need to get Windows back on here.

Love this thread and I've been lurking for quite sometime. This is my first post. I'm no photog and I only have a couple of point and shoot cameras but thought the following pics turned out decent.....
Spring is here, deck patio flowers....
Next door neighbor's barn....
My heaven on earth...
Did some national park exploring this spring. Great Sand Dunes:

Love it when the student section shows up early for a game.
A couple of new ones from me.
"Orange Glow" - Sunset at Perdido Key, Florida
"Up the Hill" - The is the Men's Pro 1 Criterium Race at the 2012 Tulsa Tough event. For any cycling people out here, this is the infamous "Cry Baby Hill." Cross-processing enhancement added to this shot.
"I'm in Charge Here" - Another shot from Cry Baby Hill. This guy was hilarious.

This thread continues to produce, well done fellas.
Here's a few I snapped with my new D4 in NYC last week....
Outstanding work here. Frankly, I'm a little intimidated and have been slow to contribute based on the quality in this thread. Still, I picked up an old DSLR recently and checked out the Chihuly installation at the Dallas Arboretum. I don't know the shaggy art snob opinion on Chihuly but I loved it and hope to return at night to see it all lit up.
