@saeed: Thanks Saeed
Yep that's true. Just an hint. If you used a higher ISO, you could have more light and a better definition.

@Rui: Thanks for the hint Rui. I'll remember that. I tried some other settings on the camera when I was shooting this, but most of them blew the sky right out.

Cool Margie he certainly is a poser. picassa is a free sight you can download from the internet ( when I first posted someone told me about it) and you can do some awesome things with your photos. You may already know about it but if you dont it worth a look

@jamesy: Thanks for that Jamesy.
I like it the way it is Margie,too much PP can start too look over done sometimes.

@Anthony: Thank you Anthony!
First thing is lighting and it's poor in this shot. A way to resolve and bring out detail in the dark areas is to shoot NEF and process in AdobeLightRoom or similar. Some might take it farther and create different files with varying exposures to HDR it and bring out the detail. Nonetheless, you would save yourself plenty of time with post processing if you take the image right from the start. I suggest you look into books on exposure and the use of lighting. This is a tricky setting for photos, that's certain.
Lastly, get close. The closer you get to your subject, the more impact. I hope this helps.

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Sorry it's taken so long to respond to this very good comment. First of all, you are oh so right. The image should be right from the start! And I would like to start shooting in RAW and using Lightroom (it's on my photographic shopping list along with a lot of other things) but I think I need to learn to walk before I start running. My lack of knowledge is a little overwhelming at times but I will get there!
Thanks for the great comment, Luis.
