    Well - over the weekend I had a little free time so I took a FEW (2 memory cards full) of different flowers and fun spots around the Island... let me know what you think. Some are edited in Photoshop...

    Nice shots. Some things I noticed:

    #1 looks kinda washed out because of the harsh sunlight. Needs something to contrast it and give it some atmosphere. Maybe shoot there at a different time of day.

    #2 is beautiful. Nice perspective with the rocks in the foreground.

    #3 is interesting. Colors are good, but the sky and building in the background are blown out.

    As for the rest, the B&W's are good. I like them. But there is a definite halo around the men in #5. Not sure what that is from, maybe the shadow/highlight filter?

    I envy you because you live in this wonderful tropical setting. I will make it there for a vacation some day, but not sure when that will be.

    Thanks for sharing the pics!

    They have a funky, sort of cross-processed look to them.

    I really notice it when a horizon isn't' level...especially when it's water. A couple of these are tilted.

    Thanks for the critique! Shot #1 horizen is really off - I took it as I was walking away turned around and shot.... so I knew that was kinda off but I thought it was a cute shot so I stuck it in there. I'm still trying to get used to focusing and putting the horizen straight with the new camera. There is a definite weight difference so even after I align it - I notice I move a little before the shot. I just got a new tripod this week though - so that should help! Mahalo, Kristen
