    I am just trying to post on this for my photos to get pounded by some photography "junkies". and also to see if my method of posting pictures works in this forum.

    I just got a Sony Alpha230 in August of '09 with no practice, training, or knowledge on the basics of photography but I'm learning A LOT on this forum. Let me know what you think.

    *Note that these ARE photoshopped only for color enhancing and I really only used the selective feature and some levels

    #1 and #3 knock my socks off!
    #2 has an eerie look in the water.

    The flowers are honestly are a bit oversaturated. But that is only my opinion.

    #3 - awesome - the best of the lot
    #6 - definitely oversaturated

    After seeing number 5, I'm thinking you should try some HDR stuff.. the color you wanted to bring out would mash in great with that type of work..
    I don't have any experience there, so maybe I'm wrong, but after what I've seen it appears they love the bright, vibrant colors and exaggerated landscapes ! Personally like it myself.

    One critique, I think maybe, just maybe, that you were looking heavily at the sky in 5 and neglected the color of the light grass when tuning colors to your liking.. That's most likely what's drawing the 'overdone' comments..

    Good work! :thumbup:

    I was researching HDR last night and I am currently figuring out how to do it on photoshop CS3.. Too bad I don't have another copy of that picture with different exposure times :irked:

    upon request :)
    -I just threw this together on photoshop to try and focus your eyes on the subject and not the clutter. This is nowhere close to a good photo!
