    Use RAW and don't over expose it,

    Nice pictures! What do you use to post process your raw? That is the hard part for me, post processing....

    I use photoshop......I know its a big step and can take time, however once you get used to it you will be amazed how much your images will improve. I don't use Lightroom but a lot of people also highly recommend that it is a good starting point

    I probably should have added more, when I post process I have a hard time deciding when to stop. I change some stuff then I am not sure it is better, so I go back to original and try again....after like 10 times I am done....and then I think back and wonder if I could have done better....

    Lightroom is easier to use and cheaper than Photoshop, I think if I had neither I'd get Lightroom first now.
    They do work well together. I find the way Photoshop handles unconverted RAW is rather clunky - Lightroom is good at this.

    Great pictures! I plan to get some killer shots with my p3p which arrives tomorrow. I'm so excited!

    As for post editing, Lightroom is by far the easiest to use, imo. I hardly use Photoshop anymore unless I need to clean up a photo (remove power lines, cut out a pole or tree, etc). If you've never used Lightroom, check out Serge Ramelli on YouTube. He has 2 free tutorials every week.

    As an FYI, you can get Lightroom and Photoshop together for $9.99 a month from Adobe. It is always the most up to date version and, for me, it is very reasonable in price. I use both to process my images and my workflow has only made my images that much better.
