    Excellent man. Cheyyene. It would be better if you can mention what gear did you use for taking the shots.

    I like them all, but try give them more colour, they will became more vivid. What do you think?

    That must have been a very interesting trip.
    Nice views - they all look decidedly "Australian" to me. (Not surprising, is it? :er: )
    Well, of your selection I like #s 5 and 8 best. They have the most colour (and my most favourite) or show the action involved very well. All in all, though, these photos could be even more impressive if you worked on contrasts and colours just a bit, Matt here is right.

    Thanks for the comments guys :D

    These photos were taken almost a year ago on my old compact camera a Canon Powershot A70 on automatic settings.

    I like #12. What did you do to get that color?

    My way of getting pics in that "colour", oldnavy, is to put them into Photoshop, desaturate them completely (so they become black and white, but the colour information is, of course, still there somewhere), play a little with contrasts by pushing the overall levels, and then go to the individual colour levels and lower the blue midtones from 1,00 to 0,90 (the pic becomes a little yellow), then up the red midtones from 1,00 to 1,10. That is all I do.
    From all I know about my own Powershot (mine's the A95), though, you can also pre-set that camera to "sepia"-toning and you get this kind of photo right away. Personally I tend to find the in-camera toning devices a bit on the strong side ... I like the effect to be subtler.
