Used Canon XSI with kit lense...let me know what you think
This goes for all three threads you created recently; if you want serious advice from the people on here who are willing to give it, pick one, maybe two images for C&C. Otherwise all you'll get are, at best, general advice that doesn't actually help, and at worst, a slew of "great shots!" comments from people who don't know any better.
Yeaaa i like them, i think u have framed the pics well.. with the subject of the picture.
Watch your horizons, both the water pics are off badly.
1-2 the horizons seem off. The colours seem a bit under saturated. The image doesn't seem to have the overall sharpness and clarity that a good landscape shot should have.
I do like how you include the path in the first image, that is very well done. The reflection in the second is nice, I don't like the choice of locations of angle - the water is dirty and I guess there was wind that leaves me with a lopsided feeling.
The others - the commonality in all the close up flower pictures is that none of them are actually in focus. You may be too close to the flower or just not focusing well. I dont like the composition in them, you have cut some of the petals out of the shot that gives me a feeling of incompleteness. Watch the shooting angle and conditions as there are some pretty harsh shadows and light variances in the image.
If you are into macro and close ups, pick up a book that explains the best way to do so. Read up on some of the fundamentals of photography, such as exposure, aperture, metering and so on.
You definatly have an eye for some shots, but need to re/learn those basics.
all of the flower shots look underexposed to me.
