    Hi friends, I am a new member TPF and this is my first post.

    First, something about me, I am Abhi from India. Photography is my hobby and I love to see & share beautiful photos. I must say we have some very good photographers here.

    I currently own a Canon S2 IS. Actually, I want to buy a DSLR & I am saving money for that. Let's hope I get it very soon.:sexywink:
    Other than this, I think I am a photographer who pays more attention to the composition rather than the technical details of a shot.(Some of you may not agree with me actually.)

    Here are some shots shot with my Canon S2 IS (all in Auto settings.) All are from my recent trip to Orissa, a state in India.

    Your comments and suggestions are highly welcome.

    Thanks,
    Abhi.

    Wow, those are some awesome shots! Don't you just love taking pics of things from other cultures when your on vacation. Our home computer's screen saver is a slide show of all the pics on our comp and i love seeing vacation photos pop up, they have a cool way of bringing you back to that moment and help you relax

    Love the boat and the next 2 photos after it (tip-number your pics 1,2,3,4, etc). The boat pic is definitely tops in my book but could use a very minor horizon straightening.

    Some really great photos there. :thumbup:

    5, 6 and 7 are my faves. Mini tip: try to keep the horizon absolutely horizontal.

    I really like photo 10 too, really inventive angle.

    Welcome to the forum and keep up the good work. :thumbup:

    Welcome to the forum Abhi! I was in the same boat as you for a long time, I had to save awhile before i got a DSLR. These shots are all nice, I particularly like the buildings and statues, the architecture and sculptures are beautiful! However, you won't believe how big a difference having a DSLR will make on taking photos like these. The detail you'll be able to extract from each shot will be astounding! I look forward to seeing more of your work soon!
