    So I went to Venezuela a few weeks ago, and I brought my camera with me. I took many photos, here are just a few that I'm proud of and I would like to know what peolpe think. What you like and what could have been done to improve the shots. Also looking for feedback on post processing, as I am still relatively new to photography and would like to know if what I'm doing is going in the right direction.

    These were all shot with Nikon D60, Nikkor 18-105mm. I use Nikon NX2 and Photoshop CS3.

    Thanks for looking.

    There was no photo #5, my bad...so I will assume you meant #4...?

    Thanks for the comment.

    Was expecting to see a post full of unfocussed washed out snapshots. Nice photos!

    Lovely light you had for most. Photo 4 is a strange one for a holiday photo, which is why I like it! :D
    The first is also nice. Perfect timing, I'd say.

    Yeah I guess the title can be kind of misleading :confused:...Thanks

    They don't look dark on my computer, but my monitor has not been calibrated, so I'm never sure if what I do/see comes out decent on other monitors.

    You're right #4 does'nt look like the typical holiday shot, but there is only so much beach photos you can take before it all becomes the same. For the first one I did have to time it, I had to watch the waves coming in and wait for the big one. I think it turned out real good.

    Thank you for looking and all your comments.
