    My honest opinion is that you don't need to capitalize every word you type. ;)

    Well for one, the last four images are broken. I assume you're asking us to look at your shots and determine if you should consider continuing study, and for me the answer would be yes. The first (and only one that is visible) shot looks as if someone smudged the lens before shooting it. I guess the composition is all right but there's nothing spectacular about the shot after looking past the funky blur effect.

    In my opinion there is always something to be learned, so you really shouldn't "quit while you're ahead."

    But you do need to capitalize appropriately, not abandon it entirely. :lol:

    What do you mean 'Quit while you're ahead'?

    I can't tell if that means quit photography, or quit looking for other jobs - you know, since you're so far ahead in your photography...

    A little bit of punctuation thrown in here and there would help people understand what you mean too.

    4 replies, 1 of which was related to the actual critique of the photo. I full-well understand the importance of grammar but that's what we're going to harp on here? I think its pretty obvious the OP just wants C&C on his work.

    As for the photo, I like it for some reason. I don't quite get the smudge effect or the color gradient from sky to water (yellow to white) but it does seem to liven up an otherwise ordinary image. I think with a more solid original composition you wouldn't have to use those effects to gain interest in the photo. I'd like to see the original photo.

    Obvious? Really?

    I didn't see anywhere in there where the OP was asking for critique.

    All I could figure out is that (s)he is trying to decide what career to pursue.

    I think you might scared her/him away...

    I do like the colours of the pic, but am not fond of the blurry rims.
