Hey, so I read somewhere recently (the photographic powerhouse magazing "outdoor" *sarcasm*) that no photo taken with a D-SLR is complete without running it through a program to clean it up, like PShop.
I read this after I was realizing all of my photos were coming out very flat and lacking of color with my Rebel XT. I ran a few of the photos through auto leveling and adjusted contrast and brightness and they did clean up a bit.
I like taking photos, but I had a budget when I bought this camera, and also had existing lenses from my analog SLR that would work with it. The lenses I think are my biggest downfall. They were uber budget Sigma lenses with a macro feature.
What do you photographers with fancy cameras think of that line of reasoning? I mean I obviously if I had nicer lenses that would produce a better photo...
