    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Don't take it personally, it can happen to any of us! One of those prior 11 views is me, but I am being bad at work today and playing more than working since it's my birthday. But I did feel enough guilt to click out without replying when I got interrupted. :mrgreen:

    So, now I'm back and I will say I like the star images very much. The secnd bike shot stands out, as well, with all those great shadows. But those last two star shots, especally the last one, are my faves of the group. But nice work, overall!! :thumbsup:

    greetings graig,

    thanks for posting welcome to the board, we are all spread out all over the world so different people post at different times.

    about the graig davis reference check out darfion's off topic post:
    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3349&start=0

    Now to the good stuff, your photos! If you have only been at for 4 months, you've got some good shots mate!

    I love the composition of the 2nd one, looks you've captured that nearly perfectly - is it the same biker or many coming in succession.

    The motorcyle shot is really well composed too. I would like to see that razor sharp, i can't tell from this post.

    I like the 3rd from the last shot too, its warm photo. looks inviting, makes me want to knock and the door and ask for hot cider and cookies, that is if i don't get shot for trespassing ;)

    Dont take me wrong. I wasnt upset, just...a bit confused. :)

    the night pictures was my first time out at night. I was having a lot of fun playing with shutter speeds. Its amazing how bright all those pictures turned out. Some of the others I took looked like day time with stars in the sky.

    yes thats the same biker in the one picture. I used the 5 shot burst and then photoshoped them all into one.

    All of those pictures arent the best resolution. So they are all more crisp than they appear.

    Here are a couple more that you may appreciate more.

    Hi, welcome.

    I like your pics. I especially like the Jars of Clay shot. I like the shape and etc.. of the lamp post, but the angle throws me a little. I really like the B&W's best.

    nice shots man.

    your biker sequence shot is very cool. i would like to take some sequence shots as well, but i think i will have to buy a motor drive for my camera first.

    anyway, keep up the good work dude !

    very cool shots. How would I go about making a photo like your 2nd one of the biker sequence? I am able to do shot burst with my camera, but how did you combine them on photoshop? THanks :)

    How savy are you with photoshop? Use the magnetic lasso tool (look it up in help if you need to) and cut out the biker (and shadow) from the last pictures and paste them into the first picture.
