    Hey Everyone,

    I just got a new camera (Canon EOS 30D) and am looking to turn my interest in picture taking into a more serious hobby. I am inspired by the surroundings of my home country bermuda and the outdoor sports I love. Here are a few of my favorite scenic shots from around the island from messing around with my point and shoot (digital elph). These are the best pictures I feel I have taken on my point and shoot and any real criticism/pointers would help me improve with my new SLR. Thanks.

    I think number 5 has pretty good movement and composition.

    6 is my favorite, great look to it, try looking up the rule of thirds, it may help a little
    but great shots from what i can see as they are a little small :greenpbl:

    thanks for the comments. I have figured out how to get them in a decent size. Unfortunately I changed the order of the pics! Sorry the references above are no longer correct but hopefully you can see them properly now!

    What was 5 is now 3 and is also one of my favorites.

    peekay i agree more sky would be good in the stair photo and maybe less sky in #2. I also want to try those to locations with a variety of sky's (sunset and evening with more clouds) with the new camera

    im liking the sky pictures, nice balance, nice colours.
    im not digging the non-sky pictures, i find there is a lack of an interesting subject in the images. they are nicely exposed and stuff, just not too interesting to look at.
