    Hi guys and gals, I'm new here but I'd like some comments and criticisms (constructive please) on my shots. Only been seriously shooting since May, but seriously enjoying it! I'll stick to 5 shots for now, but have a bunch more. I personally enjoy night photography, panoramas, macros and long walks on the beach. Anything else just ask!

    not bad.. i think you held the shutter closed for a little bit to long though on the fireworks shot... and theres a lot of camera shake in 4 and 5...

    Nice shots. Very vivid, very clear. I think you got too much of an angle there on that shot of Hilton Hawaiian Village. Please send me some Li Hing Mango. I'm dying here. I can't even find li hing powder anywhere.

    Chris camera shake in 5 is not that at all actually, it was the wind blowing the coconut trees fronds, if you notice the building (aloha tower in this case) isn't blurry at all so the camera wasn't moving, it was on a tripod, and number four was a relatively low light 200mm shot @5.6 with VR on, shooting at around 1/60...so yeah it's there but I liked the way it came out. Fireworks shot was a 17" bulb exposure and was just clicking away at random times on the remote. Also on the hilton shot there was the stupid fireworks u-haul van just out of the picture and I didn't want it in there so I tilted the camera (albeit a little too much).

    Welcome to TPF, greg!

    I also think there's a bit too much of an angle on 2. How long was the shutter open for 2 and 5?

    All very neat and creative shots, IMO. Sports one wasn't my personal favorite, but it's still cool. I wouldn't change a thing on any of them. Thanks for sharing and welcome aboard. Looking forward to seeing more.
