    sunrise today

    Overall it's just a bad scene. While the sky is nice the foreground (fence and other dark areas) are distracting and don't do justice to the sky when you cut them out. Try getting out of the yard :)

    New Pics C&C

    All the pics are overexposed and lack substance. Too much void (huge areas of solid white) and not enough emphasis on your subjects

    Dog Pics C&C Please

    I think theyre ok. but I think that your shots look a little lazy. doesnt look like you put effort into getting a good angle or setting the dog up somewhere interesting. the last one almost was good, but for some reason it looks a little blurry. perhaps compression and just inadequate...

    Nissan Titan

    There's not much to critique. It's a snapshot of a truck. Any more pics?

    Fully Manual Or Aperture Priority

    Manual can certainly be useful like for long exposures but seriously I don't get manual "snobs," sorry... I use AV 90% of the time and works wonderfully! You still have full control!

    Nighttime Cityscape in San Diego California!

    Very nice. I have a similar picture on my website. Check sig. The one on my site is less saturated than the original one I took (which looks similar to yours) I'm still not sure if I like the "cool" or "warm" look. The other one can be seen on Amazon's 50mm 1.8 MK II (Canon) lens photo...

    Engagement Photos / C & C Please

    Nice tips guys! But I also agree limb-chopping was a bit extreme here. The last one looks flat and underexposed. Keep on truckin!

    "Camera doesn't matter" fact not true?

    Aside from the lenses, full frame (or larger frame, even) produces sharper images than a smaller frame. Whether its film or digital.
