    What do you guys think of this shot, taken with my new Rebel XT :heart: and Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens? I manually set the shutter speed using the little graph thingy in the viewfinder, it's about my 90th shot with the camera so I'm still learning it!

    it appears to be a bit overexposed. i know with my D70, when you shoot in modes other than auto, the area of metering changes. i always shoot in manual, but need to pay close attention to metering when doing so. i would check you manual and see what it says. another thing to bone up on is composition; rarely do you want to place your subject in the center of an image.

    There is a lot of grass around the horse and it's not doing anything for the picture.
    You need to decide whether it's a picture of the horse, or a picture showing the relationship between the horse and it's environment.
    Don't worry so much about the technical side at the moment - concentrate on the content.
