    Okay people you will be hearing a lot from me...i'm new to this website and I think its interesting to get different opinions...exspecially when I'm learning. So this is shot in manual (first time playing in this mode) playing around in my front yard. What do ya think? I didn't save the original color copy..should have though!

    Is that where you choose spot, center, or matrix?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Is it in your recycle bin? I would like to see it!
    I would perhaps crop that building out at the bottom.
    It is hard to tell if that bit is blown on the side there, can you use your photo program to show you highlights?
    Other than the above mentioned I really do like it, I like the different shades and the black tree behind..
    Did you use a flash?

    Well I think you've taken a picture of a tree..... lol....

    I find this shot hard to comment on because it's kinda artistic so it depends on how you are presenting it...

    for example the picture is tilted.. is this for effect or intended?

    the structure in the background is distracting... (mildly)

    exposure wise there are lost highlights and lost lowlights... the range in this shot is hard to capture... are you using matrix metering? or center weighted?

    you may want to try a polarizer to prevent the highlight clipping and spot meter off the bright green in manual backing up 2/3 stop...

    you can take my advice but i frequently enjoy drugs and alcohol..:wink:
