    Hey, as the title says I'm new to this. The pics are some I've taken in the past, and I was just wanting some tips on how I can get better. I don't like using PS, its a pain, and on these I haven't used PS. I will be adding pics later on too, and maybe continue adding more(?). Let me know what you think.

    #1 animals look a lot better without wire in front of them, shoot through the wire if possible.

    #4 looks very awkward with the dangly bit coming in horizontally. It should really be rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

    thanks, yea the second one was of the snow we had this winter. mostly i liked the way the light played across the snow.

    mmm... i'll keep that in mind, but with the animal, it was waay to close to the fince. but i will keep that in mind later on.
    yea, i tried it that way, but with the light it looked really odd. lol thanks for the tips.

    these next photos were taken last year in Engles Nest, New Mexico over the 4th of July weekend for my family reunion.

    I love babies....:))

    #1. I would've loved this sky shot if those power grids were not there....you can do PP and erase it..:)

    #2. I agree this is a tough shot since the lighting and shade are to be precise even though a sleeping baby is the best model to shoot...somehow this snap shot not up to the mark.

    #3. Same here....a difficult shot but original...that fur is mostly taking the baby's charm..:))

    #4. The best shot in the lot. Only thing I would've asked for is the tail end of mr Squirrel and if possible complete silver foil container....other wise, this is a good shot.

    Yes...PP is Photoshop in this forum at-least...:))

    And to be honest, I liked the previous Squirrel itself...this one has an over exposure in the background....:(

    And your building shot is really a good one.....and it shows your taste. As they say, if you have a specific taste in something, try to do more in that...and horn your skills.

    Question : Is this building having some kinda slanting ? Seems it is leaning to one side....:))
