    If there twerent those hotspots on those there cows - fantastic. That fish would've made a fabulous macro, especially considering its translucence.

    ANDS!,
    I see what you mean,did not think about macro,at the time.
    -the light had become very strong while I was wandering around a lake,but had not compensated for it.Too excited by a rare whole day to shoot..steadied down a bit after breakfast.

    Perhaps this is the better shot of the two-have a hard time choosing shots/seeing what is wrong-

    I like the second cow shot better than the first, but that is a personal opinion.

    I really like the cat picture as well, it is interesting.

    Neither of the lake pictures catch my interest. I feel like they are a little flat.

    The first cow shot is great. Nice crisp lines and colors.

    i honestly dont know how to use anything other than manual. i was teaching my mom how to use the auto setting, then realised i didnt know either

    i love the one with the cows! but i wish the sky was more blue, to contrast with the cows

    50two,

    Thanks,will mess with the sky and see what I get.

    -you were lucky to start like that-I got thrown in-had to get the shot-quickly,so no time to mess around,auto,or forget it !

    The link bacically says,move onto Auto when YOU are ready,not from peer presure,gives some nice links to getting the basics down.

    Now,I'm trying to educate myself,Law of Thirds,composition rules...and thought that link might be good for another beginner-wish I'd found it,a year ago,when at the mercy of well-meaning advice that had my head spinning.

    I do compete quite well with my Bros and their DSLRs,because they never did the groundwork,so they can't really tell what they did wrong/right in a photo.
