our local plant conservatory

Hi Bubba! I don't know exactly what the Rebel XT settings are, but I think your shutter speed, and especially your ISO speed, are a bit too high, which would explain why your image is a little under-exposed. The problem with taking shots in snow is that the camera will always try to produce most of any image as mid-tone. When there's lots of snow, and lots of the image is really bright white, the camera tries to expose the snow as a mid-tone when of course it should be a highlight. So when taking shots of snow scenes, you should over-ride your camera's auto-exposure by 2, 3, even 4 stops. In this case if you'd used the same settings shutter speed and aperture, but ISO 200 instead of 1600 (i.e. 3 stops slower) I bet your exposure would have been spot on! Hope that helps!

I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO GET SOME CREATIVE FEED BACK FROM ANYONE, REGARDING PHOTOSHOP, WHICH I WILL FOREVER BE LEARNING,THE SUGGESTION OF BOOSTING THE BRIGHTNESS, I UNDERSTAND, AND IT DOES IMPROVE THINGS...AS FAR AS THE CAMERA SETTINGS THE PHOTO WAS TAKE IN A-DEP MODE, WITH 1/400O SEC EXP TIME, F16, ISO 1600 PARTIAL METERING MODE (REBEL XT)ANY SUGGESTIONS ON THIS...AGAIN I WILL BE FOREVER LEARNING THIS CAMERA, IT SEEMS

Really nice photo of the conservatory. The pyramids sure look out of place in the snow. I'm with Steve, boosting up the brightness some would help. Great Job from one Bubba to another lol...

Very good image, and the contrast between the stark artificial lines of the pyramids against the soft curves of the snow works really well. I think boosting the exposure a bit in PS would add a bit of punch to the image. As ever, most automatic cameras under-expose snow scenes.
