    Hello everyone,

    This is more for my girlfriend than me. She wants to work towards becoming a photographer. She has a few pictures she has taken, her first attempts, at this link. If I could get some feedback at least on the one image it would be wonderful. She is too embarrassed to ask as of yet.

    http://www.ashtonsd60.com/gallery.aspx#/?category=all&sort=recent&page=1ℑ=13812

    and also if she gets enough page views she can compete to win a nice camera that neither of us can afford. I would love the help for her, and make no mistake any criticism will be invaluable.


    Thanks everyone.

    From what I could tell, she seems like a fine photographer but that website is obnoxious.

    I have to agree on the site. Im trying to get her to branch out and discuss openly in forums and post on a site with...eh less flash and crap loading before the actual image.

    But her heart is set on trying to win a camera at the moment. That was on an old borrowed camera.

    If those are her first attempts I think she shows great promise.

    That site, though, must rank as one of the most inept I've ever seen - and believe me, I've seen some inept sites!

    Sorry I can't view the site, it wants me to install special software. I do not install software just to view a site. There are many people that are going to hit the back button instead of installing any software. :meh:

    You are correct that you shouldn't have to install special software for viewing pictures on a website...

    Having said that, I am surprised that anybody with an internet connection wouldn't already have Flash installed... it is pretty core these days.

    Me, I will be glad to comment on pictures posted here on TPF... I don't review those posted on other websites.

    Perhaps you would like to post some of them here?

    Plus the galleries are for comments and critique. This part of the forum is more for discussion.

    I have an older version of flash, and it won't let me look with anything but the newest. I'd like to see the photos though. If you post them here, with a link to the site, you might get more page views.

    It does say "The Beginners Place and Photo Gallery". I think it was a compromise to having a sub-forum for just a beginner gallery.

    I think most of her shots are nice. I don't know how much that's saying since I don't really know what I'm doing yet.:lol:

    She could desaturate a couple and/or pull the red/magenta out of them. But those are PP suggestions.:mrgreen:

    Its Flash 9. Not Porn-Dialerv2.0

    And I didn't know Ashton Kutcher was pimpingg the D60. Good on him.

    Photos are fine as far as getting to know the camera are concerned. Sucks that each time you view a new one the site "reloads". I would recommend a free FLICKR account if she wants to host her pictures. Much easier.
