    Hello everyone

    I've been taking some pictures every now and then and I just wanted to share them with you. Some are old which I put up a good while ago and some are fairly new, here's a link to my Flickr photostream.

    Feel free, in fact please do, critique and comment on them since I want to get better! :mrgreen:

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, I do realise that in the second picture there's quite a bit of shake but I just really like it for some reason, it also looks blown out so... Why I like it? I don't really know...

    1. Oversaturated, nothing in focus, no composition
    2. Noisy, blown out, car in shot, etc.
    3. In focus, but boring.

    1. Blurry. Over-saturated.

    2. Blurry. Noisy. Blown out. Interesting subject though. Maybe try a reshoot?

    3. It's a picture of a headlight. :meh: And it seems underexposed?

    Edited to add: Sorry, I pretty much said everything that Geaux said, but I posted before refreshing.

    Ah, yeah. I see what you both mean now.

    They're nowhere near as nice as I thought, ah well. This is how you learn I suppose :mrgreen:

    I think with 1 I oversaturated it in PS unfortunately.

    I'm quite disappointed with those now. :p

    Only way to go from here is up I suppose.

    Cheers for all of the comments.

    I think the biggest issue you have is focus and composition. ( Aside from subject matter which can be debated all day long ).

    I agree that the saturation is way overdone in #1. You should probably focus on the basics ( composition, camera techniques to minimize camera shake, and exposure ) before diving into too much Post Processing. A common misconception is that photoshop can fix any picture. ( I also had this same impression when starting out ) but it can't. You can polish a turd all day long but at the end of the day its still a turd, just one that sparkles a little more. ( not saying that your work is a turd, just trying to put it into perspective for you );). If you have a super blurry picture ( unless intentionally so ) just scrap it.

    I like the headlight shot. Good focus and detail! Sound choice to keep it in b&w.

    Thanks for all the tips guys. I used to know most of the stuff that you guys are saying, but after having taken a huge break from photography (thanks to university) I seem to have forgotten quite a bit of it.

    Thank you all though :)
