    hey everyone,
    Ive always been intrigued by photography but never had a camera to do much
    I recently got a digital camera for christmas :) and finally can start up a new hobby
    i took a few photos off of the niagara escarpment in Ontario Canada
    here are a few of the pics i liek best, tell me what ya think and what i can do next time to make them more appealing.
    I have MGI Photosuite III SE and i could use that to enhance some photos but im not good with all the options yet, feel free to reccomend some things I could work on in the program to alter the photos
    Ill be reading a lot of the forums about everything
    heres a bunch of those photos: First two are b/w others are regular color

    Hey, Before I even read the post I said that looks like Rattle Snake Point at Milton and sure enough... I spent many a weekend hiking around the escarpment doing good and bad things but that was 20 years ago.

    Welcome and I look forward to seeing more of your images.

    Here is a photo of my motorcycle on the north side of the mountain taken sometime in the early 80s. The road to get in there is blocked off now but back then we drove right out on the cliff past the ski hill.

    I really like your series. I think the thing I first noticed about your pictures is how well you frame your subjects. Nice work! Keep 'em coming.

    They say your suppose to over expose snow pictures by a stop or something, but then you can loose detail in the sky. Some prefer to do the "overexpose" with curves.

    Btw, welcome to the forum. I presume your a southern ontarian?
