I think you must be a bird, do you have any shot at ground level. H
OK Tony, the last post was a joke but as you persevered I'll reply to the thread properly, looking at the shots I'd say your'e shooting pretty much wide open (aperture) and shots like the cats need to be stopped down for overall sharpness of the subject, 5.6 - F8 should do the job, other than that they're mostly snapshots and the only two I like are the "looking up the skyscraper" & "looking down on the beach colourshot" H.
I quite like the first, it lends itself well to B+W.
In the first couple images I think you've overexposed a little-- the would be stronger if the brighter parts of the pictures weren't burnt out.
how do i get away from everything looking like a snap shot?
Think about what you're trying to communicate in the picture, look for interesting composition, freeze action/blur action, isolate subject or great depth of field, its all there in your hands just stop a while before hitting the shutter. H
Most are snapshottish as mentioned and the first couple are too extreme in the blacks & whites (too black and too white). I do really like #4
oh ok i see. thanks you lyncca
Practise and playing around alot. Joys of digital, you don't have to go through lots of film to see what works. Just load on your computer, and delete what you don't like, and keep the others. Ones you delete, look at them, and see why you don't like them, and keep the notes in your head for next time.
Some are overexposed but #4 could be a great shot with a few adjustments
