    ive only had my camera for 3 weeks now, 500D. I was on a fishing trip in Canada this past weekend and had some great opportunities to get some good shots. Im a total newb still but I am super happy with these.

    The first one was on portrait mode and all of the rest were on landscape. Slight PP done to each, still trying to figure that out too.

    2nd one really catches the eye, Your a bit over exposed and your whites in the upper left are blown out. The red in the trees on the right is getting blown out.

    The boat is ok and the ducks don't do anything for me. One good one is worth it :thumbup:

    Realy like #3 (which i think is #2). Nice rich color of the trees and the shot looks realy sharp. Shot kind of looks like its being chopped in half.

    Thanks a lot! The dock and trees is my favorite also. I goofed up on the numbering because I originally had another picture as number 1 but edited the post and got rid of it.

    These images are better than the ones in your other thread. But you're still centering the subjects and it sounds like you're still using the Basic Modes instead of taking more creative control over your shots. Try shooting in the Creative Modes and start playing around with the camera so you can start to understand exposure. Learn about the Exposure Triangle and how each part of the triangle (aperture, shutter speed and ISO) affects your images.

    Keep shooting and keep trying different things.

    I also really like #2. #1 is somewhat interesting... but the boat just doesn't pop out at me, it might look better with more contrast? I'm not sure tho.

    As far as the bird pictures, eh dont do anything for me tho. They look a little more like snapshots IMO

    Thank you Samanax, I haven't heard of the triangle before. Ill be sure to check that out.

    I liked the loon pictures because its not too often I get to see one up close like that and spanning its wings. It was kind of like a "shot of the moment" for me.
