    Hi. I'd appreciate some feed back on these shots(snaps). Obviously I'm not aiming to be a professonal, I would simply like to take good pictures. Would like to know how I could improve these. Hits tips.....and C&C

    Thanks.

    Try not to post too many at once, drives people away sometimes. Some people prefer if you number the pics for reference.

    1 - I'd trim it down a bit. The sky (it's not a very exciting sky) takes away from the nice lighthouse. I'd also crop the bottom up to where the concrete meets the dock on the right side.

    2 - Meh, I much prefer the first one. The truck is just ugly and mucks up your pic.

    3 - I think this is great. If anything I'd maybe trim the top down if you can get away with it (just above his head - the one on the left looking right)

    4 - Very pretty :thumbup:

    5 - The high exposure looked ok with #4... here it doesn't work so well. I think the bird's highlights are over-bright/blown.

    The last two in your second post are a bit less thought out I think and the people being present in the images hurt them as well. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks Reznap... Is this better.. [​IMG]

    5 is my favourit. I took these as RAW +JPEG so hopefully I will be able to adjust the exposure etc., once new software arrives from Amazon
