    I shot these on my honeymoon and am going to be submitting them for a contest held by the resort...

    Please C & C!! Also, there has been ZERO PP done to any of these.

    Thanks in advance for helping out a serious newbie.

    1. Kinda works, but there's really nothing to lead me into the photo. I see the subject then my eyes wander to find something else to look at.

    2. Seems a little blurry, did you use a tripod? I'd guess no since you were no your honeymoon... I like the colors but the poles distract from the scene (at least for me).

    3. Yep, that's an island. Nothing real 'wow' here...

    4. Composition on this one is bad, there's really nothing to look at. I find myself wanting to see what's above that wall or whatever it is.

    5. Missed focal point? What I believe is the subject is out of focus.

    I did use a tripod for thi, but a very cheap and lightwight one (easier for traveling) I don't have the EXIF in front of me, but it was something like a 13 or 20 sec exposure time.

    Yes, but it is one of the big selling point of the resort... and that is who the pictures are for.

    Hmm... i really liked this one for the old peir being under water... should I crop out the wall maybe?

    That is exactly what happened on this one. I was in a spot where I couldn't easily get behind the veiwfinder, so I just eld the camera and fired off a few.

    Thanks for the comments!

    One explanation I read about being a good photographer is to be able to show someone a photograph and have them really get a feel for what it was like to be there.

    That said, I had no idea what you were trying to convey in this photo - let alone there was an old pier under water. Perhaps cropping out the wall would help me focus my attention on the under water pier, if nothing else - really concentrate on what is down there.

    Am I the only one who caught this?

    How does this work? Will a tilt-shift lens give you this kind of depth at f22 on a 55mm lens? Or is this actually photoshopped contrary to the OP's statement?

    Focal Length: 55.0mm
    Aperture: f/22.0

    No, I just shrunk it for upload on my work PC (no PS)

    It is the VR lens, I never thought about turning it off. How would this help?

    the 18-55 AF-s VR kit lens. I can't recall exaclty wht i was thinking when i shot this specific one because I tried a lot of different settings before getting the best (IMO) exposure out of having the settings this way.

    Also, i no very little about photoshop so I don't really even use it at all, yet.
