    Having had the camera now for about 2 months I thought it was about time I showed you some of the photos Ive been getting. Feel like i really have improved and am progressing, though still havent found my 'style' just yet.

    As always C&C welcome

    These were taken from my balcony when Im currently staying in Toronto.
    quite new to trying cityscape shots as Im use to the rolling hills of the Pennines in the UK.

    And not a particularly good photo, but I was trying to capture some lightening strikes last week on a 60 sec exposure

    I absolutely LOVE that second shot (the b/w of the skyline)!

    And the sky is lovely in the first shot.

    #2 would be really great with more contrast, make the blacks black.

    Im starting to learn abit more about processing the images, and hopefully when I've sorted a new laptop out, Ill get myself photoshop to play with. Hopefully then Ill be able to get the most from most of my photos

    I love the sky colors in #1. #2 is really different, another one of those shots that makes you stop and just look at it instead of continueing to scroll down. Nice job.

    Love #2.

    I like #1 only because the CN Tower looks like a Cylon (BSG)
