    Hello to everyone at these lovely forums! I'm a 15 year old high school student from Canada looking for some C&C on some of my pictures. Feel free to bash all you want. These pics are taken with a D40X and a 50mm F/1.8, no tripods, no flash, no strobe, nothing. Just glorified snapshots!

    Waves over a rock while I was fishing in the Niagara Gorge. This wave was made by the Whirlpool jet boat. Just a quick little snap with some HDR-like editing in photoshop.

    Got bored in the car after just getting my 50 f/1.8 and wanted to take a pic of something!

    Most pics have been photoshopped in a totally un-realistic way. I know some of them look totally over saturated.

    To imbed an image from Flickr. Go to the picture you want to use from Flickr and click on "All Sizes" (above your picture). Select the size you want to display and then look below the picture for the #2 box that says "Grab the photo's URL:". Highlight to select it and then right click the selection and hit Cut (or Copy). Now go back to the TPF (The Photo Forum) post you want to imbed the image in. Click on the orange and grey icon above the message box (the one that looks like a tree with a camera in the front of it). In the box that pops up, paste the URL in box (make sure you only have 1 "http://" in the URL line before you hit the Ok button). Hit the Ok button. Click on the "Preview Post" button to see if your picture is imbedded in the post.

    i like 5,8,9. if you post less images in each topic you may recieve more complete comments.
    f.e. in the #4 the fan looks quite good (i don't like so much the subject, but is a nice shot) but the composition could have been better cutting an upper slice to fill the frame with tour subject
    the #7 looks interesting, but you took it from too far. a closer shot and a not completely desaturation could enhance it.

    You've got an eye for composition. Keep posting here for critic.

    Welcome aboard.
    You will get more/better critique if you keep your posts to one or two shots. Also, the more info you give us about the shot, the better we can offer advice & comments.

    why does everyone under 18 seem to find the need to say "yeah im only... so yeah c&C

    It doesn't make you any better...

    anyways appart from that rant...

    Very nice Composition in the images,
    #5 is a little too strong imo, but it only just works, but only just anyways thats all i have to contribute atm :)

    I will agree it does look washed out in the whites, I'll touch it up again. I just like to point out I'm younger so people take the C&C accordingly, I don't care about how "good" anyone thinks I am or the pictures are but I don't want suggestions that are way out of my league. Or budget :lol:

    Yeah I'm 15 but it dosent make a difference. But there isn't anything that really catches my eye here. They just look like snapshots with heavy PP. When I go shoot now I know exactly what I want before hand. And I spend an hour or so on location setting up and shooting then just taking my time to compose and find out what parts will catch someones eye. Then I go from there.

    Yep, '05 convertible with red seats.

    Right now what I'm working on is getting more time for trips just by myself as with other people I always feel very rushed and don't have time to explore with settings, better lighting, and better composition. I will take a couple long walks by myself on some local trails and see what I can come up with. Expect a waterfall pic of two :D
