Well this is my first post here,(Edit :Ive already notified staff that I think this is the wrong area for this thread so please no bashing.) I am as stated just getting started in this wonderfull hobby. I have 8 pics for you to see today, 3 of which are situational(correct terminology?) photos that I had very little control over. The others are all still shots. I dont have one genre to speak of that I prefer to take photos of. I am more of a see something nice, snap a pic type person. I am looking for hits or tips if you so choose to say so. I would like some feedback on what you think. Here is a breif description of the pics. All photos are digi, and have been edited in PS CS2. All these have been resized to close to 1024x768 but they still look huge on here. Sorry if I break any rules, I will abide by any that are brought to my attention. Phatboy 1. My pooch trotting in the snow. I like the contrast 2. A cemetary entrance I dubbed ''The Gate" 3. Skyline a few weeks ago just after a large snowfall. 4. Just a candle. Playing with macro. 5. A plant pod of some type I call "Grabbie". Again macro. 6. Pink and White flower...macro 7. Baby rose flower, lots of contrast, and some softening. Wanted that emotional look. 8. My first attemp at fluid capture. I got the focusing backward, I wanted the foreground to be in focus. Oops 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
