what kind of camera are you using?i hope you don't mind but i took the liberty to see if i could edit this somewhat to show you what you can do with 10 minutes worth of work. here is a link to ithttp://11111111111-11111111111.blogspot.com/
@raskolniikov - i cannot seem to see the link - i don't have permission? so kind of you to take time for this!i use a canon powershot sd750 with pretty much no post-processing on the vast majority of my shots except for some judicious cropping. this is due to two things: little time and even less knowledge. naturally, my best shots are on full-sun days!
