    Sorry if this is the wrong forum...
    I have taken a high school photography class so I know the basics but I've never had the patience for true photography... LOL. But I got these two shots the other day near Seaside, Oregon and thought they were ok. What do you think?
    -If this makes any difference, it was taken with a Canon Powershot A560 digital cam-

    My camera setting was on Manual. I tried to retrieve the aperture/iso/shutter speed info and could not. There was no tripod. It was an overcast day that day, but it was still pretty bright.

    I can adjust my ISO but I can't with my shutter speed or aperture.

    The first one looks to have a bluish or purplish cast to me, playing around with the white balance a bit may improve it. Looks like a cool place.

    The shots show what could be a very interesting place..

    But, I don't really see what the subject is other than snapshots of a site you visited..

    Exposure seems OK at this compression...........but neither tells me a story or compels me to spend any time looking around the frame.... Perhaps a different composition or perspective would have been more pleasing..

    Why titled "How is this shot?" Do I win anything for guessing correctly?

    Leave a bit of space between images so they don't run together on the page. Numbering them is really helpful for others to identify which image they are critiqueing.

    :), I just realized how you meant it.

    You're near Seaside and this is what you found to shoot? Go to the beach and get some of those rugged cliffs, or people shoot on the strip! You managed to take photos of stuff that could be anywhere. There is some beautiful scenery around there, take advantage of it. You're off to a good start. Learn the fundamentals of exposure inside and out if you want to get great shots, it's worth the time and energy.
