    These photos are from a cemetery in town that is home to several of Texas' former officials and Confederate States of America Soldiers and officers.I have left the photos unedited so you can see the original composition(if any) and leave any critique you think may be helpfull.I would rather not take photos haphazardly nowing I can edit them later,I would rather take a phot based on knowledge learned.I did learn today that I need a Wider angle lens.Widest I have is 35mm.Not gonna post em all but if you want to look at other check em out at photobucket and send any info to me.
    Thanks

    I really love number 3, the angle and composition is great. The blurry effect in the background also works really well with the photo. Good work!

    My favourite of your little series is #5. I am a sucker for close close-ups of scenes, so I guess I would normally be all happy enough with 35mm as the widest angle I could get, and would always zoom in on the little things, like you did in #5.

    The last shows how very unfavourable the surroundings are in which there is this cemetery, and I like that photo for documentary reasons.

    All could do with some work in whichever post processing software, they could do with some much "punch", since as they are now they all look a little flat.

    I agree about the suroundings in the last.I really liked the angle of that shot and didnt think it looked good the other way.That old feed mill is really an eyesore but so is alot of the town.

    I currently have Paint Shop Pro 11 and am learning how to use it as I go with mixed results.Seems cs2 is much more popular.

    I really like both 3 and 4.

    If you don't mind me asking....what town in Texas (I'm assuming) is this in?

    thanks...I had no idea there was a Confederate cemetary that way. There are some interesting markers all along Hwy 21 (the old San Antonio Rd) ...your close. More immagration related....but from around the same era.
    Again nice shots.
