    Hi all, here's my first post so be easy on me.

    Funny how it works, Both of these pictures where kind of a mistake. When I first got my camera I went on a road trip looking for something to shoot. I was going for the big landscape shot when I noticed this little guy sitting in the ditch. Out of a hudred or so pics I took that day this is my favorite.

    This one I got this past week when I was on holidays in Jasper. I got up early to get some sunrise shots of Pyramid mountain. When I was setting up I notice this web in the trees covered in dew.

    Those are great shots. I especially like the spider web in the trees. What equipment are you using?

    A Fuji S7000. I just got it a few weeks ago, It's the first camera I've had thats capable of anything more than snap shots. I'm still blown away by some of the shots I'm getting.

    Be easy on you??? That would be no fun at all. Seriously though, those are some awesome photos you have there. I love the DOF on the first one, and the colors. The second one is a very unique shot that is well executed. Welcome!

    dont really like them. It's just a dandylion in the middle of the frame. And the spider photo is ok, you should wait for the sunset or something, or just wait for better lighting. I dont really like plain darkish lighting.

    Welcome to the site.

    Nice shots, you seem to have a good eye for finding shots that other people might miss.

    Nice to see someone else here representing Edmonton & area.

    Those are so sharp!!! That first one is really nice, but it might make it a little better if you maybe got a slightly different perspective maybe...so it's not quite smack dab in the center of the frame. That's just my opinion, not that I have much room to talk, cuz I often center the subject without thinking about it myself! I'm trying to break the habit...anyway...good job!
