Feel free to critique, I'm really trying to learn better both with the camera and visuals.
Also, I'd like to add that the first shot was with a Nikon Point and Shoot, but the rest were with my Canon XSi & kit lense.
#2 seems to have the most to say as an image. It expresses some raw emotion. It's a little noisy and blurry. Also, consider cropping it just below the bird. I'd also like to see a little more light in the photo.
I agree completely with TiCoyote.
I like that shot best.
see i told you nick... that shot wins.. hahaah!!
The car one is the only one I see with potential but its underexposed, the composition needs a little work, and the camera tilt doesnt do anything for the shot.
Thanks guys, much appreciated! The Pick #2 was actually a last minute shot before the sun started to fade away. In regards to blurry pic, I'm still tryin' to have a more steady hand with shots, but I'm sure the tri-pod would suffice in the future. In regards to light, I'm still learning as well with post editing and I don't have photoshop, so I'm using what I have in Windows Vista lol, but I agree as well with the cropping.
The car shot was actually the first day I used my XSi lol....my girlfriend told me of a nice place with a view so this was one of a few shots I took. The camera wasn't even set to RAW with specific ISO settings or exposure, I just used the automatic setting right out the box rofl....as well, I was barely learning about cropping along with trying to find my own style.
I'm pretty sure if I had photo shop I could have edited the SLR shots a lot better for some justification of a decent shot, but I'm working with basic photo editing via Windows Vista lol
Here's some recent shots form Monterey Bay. Although I didn't have the proper lense for most shots, I used the 28 - 135mm since I didn't have the 50mm 1.8 at the time.
