Hi all! I've been into photography for the last 6 months or so. I took a photo class in High School and then purchased a Canon Rebel 450D XSi around Christmas of last year with the 18-55mm EF-S IS Lens. It's the stock lens that comes with the kit. I was wondering if you guys can critique my photos, what do you like and not like. I've been looking for a long time and really like the professional style photos. Do you guys have any guides that you can recommend me to read. I've gotten some really good shots but I want to learn consistency. What settings I should use to get really full colors. What settings for dramatic shots and curvy sort of lines. Here is what I've shot so far. A lot of the photos I get are just by accident. I really want to be more consistent. Any guides I can read with photo examples and settings you guys know of so I know more of what I look for?
