    O.k so i have made the jump from point and click to SLR (Canon 1000D), these are just a few of the first pics while i play around and figure out what all the settings are for. Any helpful criticism or advice would be good, tips and trick etc

    First time with an slr? Wow! Nice job! Do you have it on full auto? Love the dog! Blurry but you will figure that out in a hurry...I like the "beach scene" the best...if you care to know. These are in Scotland?

    I think the 3rd one down is the best in my opinon. looks choice :D
    The next one down pretty good too but I find the buildings on the left a bit distracting?

    That would be motion due to panning. A very acceptable technique..

    Haha thank you all very much, the beach one was actually the FIRST picture i took, so that's great to know it has a "seal of approval" now. And yes, they were all taken in Fraserburgh, a small town in N.E Scotland.

    As for the buildings in the you mention Eventer, the Wynd Tower and Fraser Castle in the background are both important parts of the towns history and have important links to eachother, thats why i wanted them both in shot, unfortunately thats why i have ended up with those red tank things on the left too, they belong to a factory next door :meh:

    I dont know how much of a difference those filters over the lenses make but maybe i should point out that the pictures were all taken without one since the Argos didn't have any :grumpy:
    I shall try them again today
