    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to this forum and just recently got into photography. I bought a used Canon S3 IS with 3 different filters and a fisheye/wide-angle lens for $150. Camera looks brand new and works great.

    Buy anyways, I went to Italy for vacation and experimented with the camera and this is what I got. I shot in full manual mode and the f-stop and shutter speed are different for every picture.

    Any advice or comments are appreciated...I am still a newbie to photography.

    my advice is, if you want people to critique, only post 2-3 pictures, and number them

    #1 - The first thing I noticed about this shot is the CA (chromatic aberration or purple fringing) on the wire in the upper right and the dust or hair shadow in the middle fence 'eye'. Was the wire of the fence that interesting?

    #2 - Is the wooden beams the main focus of this shot? Or the scenery behind it? The horizon isn't level.

    #3 - Backlit leaves...uh, okay...

    #4 - Not bad. I like the color of the sun and the tint of color over the horizon. The horizon is nice and straight. Might have been better if the silhouettes weren't there.

    #5 - Nice, but the horizon isn't level and it's right in the middle vertically.

    #6 - Interesting shot. The vertical white bars on the right bother me.

    #7 - Nice, but what is the main subject? The carousel, the building or the sky?

    #8 - Interesting night shot. Kinda dark though.

    #9 - Interesting things going on in the shot. Repeating arches, brick textures, colorful flags, circles in the windows...I wish the flags weren't centered. Slightly underexposed.

    #10 - This image seems unbalanced...too much weight on the right side and almost nothing on the left. The bright light in the lower corner is distracting.

    #11 - Image is a little blurry.

    Thanks for the input so far. Thanks for pointing out all the faults Samanax...this really helps me out a lot. I know what to look for to take better pictures now.

    Yeah this is the very first camera I have ever own...there are many things I need to work on to take great pictures though.

    In 2, 3, 4, and 5, your horizon is crooked.

    Everything else has been pretty much said.
