    Loving the colours, very atmospheric! I would like to see a crop of the top shot that isn't so central though!

    Second one is quite good, the others could use better lighting/contrast

    the picture of the flower should have been cropped the other way.. the way its leaning makes your eye go to the left.. you look to the left and it feels cut off.

    Its also under exposed and could use some contrast... Pretty easy fix in photoshop

    The clock also seems to be a bit under exposed.

    The shot of the Vdub was mid afternoon? I dont see how.. looks like a long exposure at night. Might wanna watch for what objects are around, cause there is a tree growing from its trunk.. Heh.

    I don't care much for the last shot of the dragon fly cause of how hard it is to spot. But the first one is alright but the picture still seems a bit busy, but.. much better than the last one.


    Anyways.. Keep it up and you will improve.

    no, the shot of the vdub was at night. i said the shots of the dragonfly was mid-afternoon. and yeah, i got a bit careless with the tree.. i should chop it down. i also noticed the picture is a little crooked..
    thanks for comment

    :lol:

    The first thing that sticks out at me is that these shots all look really sharp and the lighting looks nice. It is hard to tell though how sharp they really are since the resolution is so small.

    You have good DOF on these.

    One thing I think you need to do is be more creative and find more interesting subject matter and watch your composition.

    Overall, good shots and the color is nice also - care to let us know what you're shootin' with?
