    Hello all,

    These are the first picks I am posting on this forum. I took them today with a Nikon D40, and I was trying to catch some of the fall colors. Please tell me what you think (especially about composition). Thanks

    EDIT*** Now that I think about it, can a mod move this thread to the General Gallery forum or do I need to close and reopen it?

    I personally think they look great. You know #1 would look great with a vintage action on it. I would take a stab at it but I am not on my computer with my photoshop and actions on it!

    Your shots show great clarity and sharpness.

    I like #2 the most but I like #1 as well, the roof of the house is intersting and it has a bike in it.

    What do you mean by "vintage action" ? How would I achieve that in Photoshop?

    you could really rough up #1, its a good shot, but since everything is beat up looking you could try making the photo look older. Maybe even some very light grundge brush work?

    What about the composition on #1? Is it better off to the right a bit, or should i crop it to be centered?

    1 like 1 and 4 very nice,

    2 is ok but nothing special, subject matter isn't terribly exciting

    and i think 3 is a bit boring

    It is perfect off to the right...too bad the bottom tire is cut off a bit though. I think by vintage they mean a sepia tone.

    You exposures and colors look great! Did you do any post processing or are these straight from the camera?
    I think #4 would benefit from a shallower depth of field. I think the background is a little too distracting and draws my eye away from the subject.

    Thats why I said vintage. Photoshop has downloads that can do this. It would definitely fit that picture!

    i took the liberty of doing that, i think it works very well. be better if the bike was a bit older and more beat up. but its still a fantastic photo Amphoteric

    Ok, I see what you mean. I like it, however I am a fanatic for color. I like bright and shiny things!
