Nice shots Walter! But anyway, I find your old pic´s much nicer than the new ones. That´s just my taste ...
Can it be true, that Nikon Cameras do much cooler pictures?

Greetings,
Igor

Kai,
you probably have to adjst your monitor. LCD-monitors are usually not fit for good digital photographs.

I agree! So the problem might be camera settings and in-camera processing (Manual vs. Auto ... WB, f stop - DOF, sharpness, noice reduction, focusing...), in case these have changed, lens or postprocessing! Since the lens should be good, I believe it is the settings...

I'm sorry to say that I agree too. In no profesional photo terms .. it is as if the backround has become more focused - thus taking the eye away from the subject/tree...Does this make sence? But this is what I see.

Good luck with all the exibits Walter!

I wonder what it is that you all are seeing. On my CRT-monitor everything looks very good. The trees are shot with aperture 2 to 2.8.- This means that the background disappears and the tree comes out much stronger. This is a regular photographic technique which has nothing to do with Nikon or Tamron. So where is the problem? This technique is now possible with a Nikon D40 and Tamron 2.0 which has a motor in the lens. So this is why this is new and I am trying this.
The Tamron is a world class lens, no doubt!

I am well aware about DOF and fast speed lenses...but the pictures seem to me like washed out, strange colors, a bit and white is almost burned. Check your in camera settings (WB,ISO, mode/colors,vibrance,saturation...) if the camera is new too! Do you shoot jpgs or raw?
