    Photography is something I know a bit about Jeff. I noticed that the only thing wrong is focus, as in the cooked chicken pic, I could see the background was in focus.

    What camera are you using( e.g. make & model)?

    Is it a simple point and shoot or can you make adjustments?

    It may be a simple fix, so let me know what you have.

    Your quarters look as good as I would expect if I couldn't find my glasses ... [​IMG]

    my camera is a cheap one.. you cant focus with it.... just a 3.1megapixel vivitar...

    the only solution for my picture taking skills is a new one..lol

    give me an old 35mm with a zoom and boy those pics turn out nice..

    i once shot some pics for my aunts wedding... we compared the pics with the photographers and you couldnt tell the difference... while i was taking pictures at the wedding, the photographer was getting mad at me because i was always at the spot first where she wanted to take pics....lol

    Try not getting closer than 2.5 to 3 feet until you get that dinosaur replaced [​IMG]
    You can do the same as your old 35mm with a better digital ... it's all about money eh?
    Funny you should mention wedding pics ... I actually had the pro offer to hold each pose for me, so that I wouldn't trip his slave floods before he could get his shot ... he was very accomodating. I'll bet he is a rarity though!
    That old Vivitar is still worth hanging on to for when a simple point and shoot is all that is needed ... such as parties and such.

    Take care and keep on smokin'

    I was a Wedding and school sports/candids photographer when my son was little (similar hours) and the only difference sometimes between an a Pro and the Amateur is the paycheck.

    The other half the time is the Pro remembers to look at all of what their shooting not just the subject.

    the photographer @ my aunts was getting pi$$ed cuz i was beating her to the best spots... my aunt gave me a camera with unlimited black & white film and said go wild... i mostly shot the flower girl(she was my daughter..lol)

    i have found with the propane smoker, that you have to take the water pan out for the last 45 minutes or so. With the water pan you never seem to get a nice firm crispy skin...

    And i have no choice to hang onto the digital camera, its the missus, she got it for a gift..lol

    I found my new one, just have to buy the missus something really nice b4 i pick it up..lol[​IMG]
