    Comments and critics please... Half of them (especially the ones at woods) are taken at ISO 400 as it was a cloudy day.

    I like the first one a lot.

    Here's my comment, for Krishnan and NOBODY else to answer please... Why do you think that I like #1 much more than numbers 2, 3 and 8 which have similar subjects.

    What is it, Krishnan, that makes me think it is far superior to the others... I would like to hear your (and nobody else's please) thoughts on it... can you see what I am seeing in it?

    Hmm... Let me think. I like that too for the following reasons. Probably the same reason why you like it:)

    1. The main subject stands out and naturally grabs the attention (compared to backgrond).

    2. Lots of details of the subject in focus.

    Yes, so far... study a bit more and see if you can find a couple more additional things... :)

    BTW I am not trying to quell conversation here, I just wanted the original poster to take a good look at the pictures to see if he/she could see why I think one is stronger than the others...

    1. Amazing :)
    2. Boring composition. Subject is tiny and in the middle.
    3. OK but the focus is off.
    4. Fine but nothing too special.
    5. Same as #4
    6. Not bad but not exciting enough. Maybe show much more water and have prominent reflections and light etc.
    7. Not bad but defocused grass at the bottom is annoying.
    8. Don't cut off the top flower.


    Good try for a beginner. Keep on shooting and you'll improve.

    Thanks. I really understand and appreciate the fact that you are trying to get me think:) Thanks again.

    Only other thing I can think of is the "Top angle". By the way it's a "he" and not "she":)

    Thanks Sultan!! I still have to learn on taking moving images. I tried to take a snap of the Rabit running, but it came out like a crap as you can see here:). In fact I haven't tried manual yet. I tried taking that moving object on sports mode and got this horrible picture.

    Ok, fair enough... here is what else I see.

    In the first picture, your subject was both clearly defined and set in a great place composition wise. If you learn the "rule of thirds" you wills see that the flower is on the "left" hashmark.

    The subject is sharp, but the background is both pleasantly blurred and there are no distracting colors... everything blends smoothly.

    Additionally, the subject of the picture dominates the composition.

    I really like it. Great job.
