Thinking :::: do you guys think we can be taught how to present our pics 'prettier' -

maybe for starters; in a frame ? Just basic needs. Is photoshop the only way - or is it possible with MS.?

Greetings to all

My equipment includes the following:

Nikon N50 (Film body)
Nikon F100 (film body)
Nikon D70 (a great workhorse and an iconic Nikon body)
Nikon D7000 (is and will remain a favourite of mine)
Various "muk-n-druk" cameras

On the lens side of the equipment, I have the following:
Nikon 18-70 Kit lens (not bad)
Tokina 28-70 (not bad)
Nikon 24-120 (good)
Sigma 70-300 (not too bad)
Nikon 70-300 VR (brilliant lens for its price)
Nikon 50mm f1.4 (a real gem)
Sigma 170-500 (soft on focus)
Vivitar 100-500 Manual (seldom used)
2x converter (almost never used)

Plus various:
Nikon SB-600 speedlight
manfrotto tripod and ball-head, plus old and light "cheapie" for use where appropriate,
and then the usual; beanbag; window-mount "tripod"; monopod; cards of various sizes and speeds, filters for each thread-size, Lowenpro back-pack to lug all the stuff around; several pairs of binoculars (I have a fetish for bino's); rechargeable spotlights, and an insurance policy to cover all the stuff, whether it would be replaced or not. //\0--

I have replaced a lot of kit ...Sold my Nikkor 500 F4 and 70-200 VRII f2.8 and Nikon D3s Camera and replaced them with a D800 camera and a Nikkor 80-400 f4.5-5.6 VRII AFS lens and got a 20 mm Nikkor prime. I kept my Nikkor 24-70- f2.8 lens . The New 80-400 is even sharper than the 200-400 f4 I had
