    Hi, I am new,

    My first time shooting and only with compact camera, so easy on the comments. The light wasnt perfect, lovely hill though. Shot with Casio Exilim Z1080 compact camera, 10.1 mp.:)

    All nice shots, but for me I think the last one is my favorite.

    Nice job, You might try Enhancing a couple of them in photoshop, get that color to pop, or maybe even get an urban look that would look really neat with the last one... ;)

    Overall, these are nice. All suffer a little bit due to not enough contrast.

    1.
    Seems to have some compositional issues I would have moved the tower thingy (I have no idea what that is) a little more to the right of the picture. I do like the angle as it looks like you got lower to the ground to capture this one.

    2.
    I feel this one is the best out of the series. I like the simplicity of it as you are drawn right away to the tower thingy. Here's some stuff that you can do to possibly improve it edit wise. let me know if you like the edit and I'll be happy to let you know how I achieved it.

    I feel this one has the most compositional issues of them all. I feel that this one was "taken at the hip" so to speak. Where is the subject? I'm assuming it's the castle on the left, but it's almost cut out of the picture. The horizon is not straight or appears that way (granted... sometimes you'll get a sloping horizon (hills and such) and it's hard to balance out if you want the subject level or the horizon level cause it'll look crooked one way or the other). Watch your shadows... It looks like you got somebodies shadow in the righthand side of the picture.

    4.
    I like the subject matter and I like the fact that you have the blurred out castle in the background but I feel that the castle is the subject not the in focus flowers and it might have benifited to get a little higher as to not block part of the castle with the flowers. I think that keeping the castle out of focus (though it could be considered the subject) is a nice effect here. Oh, and watch your shadows again

    5.
    Although it seems that the grain in the foreground is the subject, it has the effect of being in the way rather than the subject with a nice blurred out background. I would suggest at least getting the tops of the grain than getting halfway down the top part. You would probably get rid of that feeling that the grain is just in the way, but be transformed as the subject.

    6.
    I think this one is the second best of the pictures. Could use a little constrast, but a lovely picture overall.

    I have to agree about the composition with that tower but I do like the rest. I was there a few weeks back but didn't get the chance to take any shots :grumpy:
