    Hi,

    This is my first post on this forum. I joined here after reading through the forum and was intersted in your opinion on some photos i made and did some photshopping on (a little contrast etc).

    I am really new to photography (never had a camera before) but I really like it and I find myself constantly watching for a nice shot, on the street, at work or on the road.

    PLease post your critique one these

    Really like #3. I think #4 would have been stronger if the whole bird, or should i say corpse, was in focus!

    The one that really jumped out at me was definitely the third shot. Wow. What an incredible spectacle, like a whole other world exists within those gossamar webs. That's very cool.

    Hallo Koos, and welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    You are showing us some nice work, and although Photo 1 is a bit large for viewing (resizing them to about 600x400 pixels makes them web-friendly), I really like the crispness and the continued crispness in the reflection ... and if that really is just a plain mosquito, then you got really close and make it look really big. A horror-sight for me who I have been eaten alive by those things in our garden of late ... this one would normally not live for long if it came close to me! :shock: But one this size .........!!! Whoa! ;)

    That web is also very interesting ... and whether I like the decaying bird I don't know, but I know this one would fit into the "Decay" theme series in our Photo Themes (to find it, you can go to the index threads and look for the link).

    and @ lafoto:

    No it is not a normal mosquito it's a bigger kind which I dont the english word for. Translated from dutch to english it would be - longlegged mosquito.
    I thought that some people would not like these shots because of their directness, but thats just what I was going for.

    I thought that most of you would like nr. 2 best, funny. Thats my personal favorite.
    The webs are made by these creatures and there was a plague of them here in Rotterdam (netherlands). I have a lot of shots from these. They eat their way through bushes and fast! I have a few shots of them where there are millions on one photo.

    I am very humbled by your kind reactions. I should post some pics that have somehow gone wrong but I dont know what I could have done different (these are a few shots but off course I have made a few hundred shots in 2 weeks).
