I am having extreme difficulty coming up with good shots. I've taken about 200 pics with my new D40 (yeah, I know, spare me:mrgreen:...). I really like only 1 so far, but it would get ripped on this forum because it's a cliche "macro" shot of my dad's cat. There are about maybe five that I would even think about printing. Spent about 40 minutes at the university (LSU) today just before twighlight, but came up with $hite, save for a couple of uninteresting (an LSU die hard would love them) shots of the stadium and Mike VI--LSU's 400 pound live tiger mascot. It makes me appreciate all of y'all who have years of experience and know just how to get that perfect image, even if the subject matter is somewhat lacking--hell, even if it IS good subject matter. Anyway, I'll stop whining and moaning and let the butt-reaming begin. Please be brutal. No guts, no glory, right? :banghead: /rant. #1) Mike VI--this was shot from behind 2 inch thick glass, so there's a funky glare thing going on. I also think it's the wrong setting on the camera as well. #2) Tiger Stadium, Contrasting the old "Roman Colosseum" structure with the brand new West Upper Deck. Tiger fans would enjoy the subject matter. #3) Dad's cat. Kind of "you have to know the cat" to understand the picture. This is my favorite one.
