    Hi, these are my first real photos for photos sake (rather than holiday snaps). Having just got a new camera, thought I'd have a play. Luckily, have had a few days of nice weather, so I took a few auto bracketed photos and experimented with HDR. Any feedback would be great!

    Cheers,
    Qi

    This one is my favourite out of the lot, and was taken behind my department.

    Same location, from a slightly different angle and landscape.

    This was taken next to the Cam, on a different day (full sunshine!). Unfortunately I didn't have a tripod with me at the time, so the grass is a little blurry... May go back there when the weather is nice again as (I think) it makes a nice shot.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    It doesn't let you point it.

    A nice example of some HDR tone mapping!

    That doesn't work either. Can someone tell me how to see these photos? - I know Cambridge well tho' I live on the other side of the world, and I'd like to see them.

    right click on the question marks (or whatever you have, I dunno, I use Safari on a Mac) and save them to your computer and open em there.

    Looks like noone liked my HDR photos of little red crosses :-(

    Thanks for letting me know as because I was logged into my picasa account the pictures were still showing on my browser!

    Cheers,

    Ah, unfortunately these aren't the shots people would normally take of Cambridge, although I'm sure I'll be taking some photos of the various colleges and posting them on this forum at some stage :)

    These are quite beautiful! I want to give HDR a whirl once the weather is better and I can go exploring more :)

    Wow, very nice! The look very surreal. The first one looks like a scene from Lord of the Rings! Which camera did you use?

    I can see them and they look great. I like the tree trunks and the way they almost look "drawn" instead of real. And I wouldn't worry about the blurry grass.

    My favorite was the first one but I can see Frodo crossing several of these.

    Hi Andrew - thanks for your comments. I was using a simple point and shoot camera (a panasonic DMX-TZ3). Have only had it for a few days. Thought I'd take a few random pictures around cambridge with it so that when I go to Egypt next week I can get some good photos!
