    Seattle Great Wheel

    What are your thoughts on this? I like the composition and the reflections. It's a bit too motion blurred but I'm not sure why, I was taking it on a cheap tripod but I can't imagine that a cheap tripod shakes enough to cause visible blur? I was also hoping to get this shot with the wheel turning...

    Difficult composition -- airplanes

    So I got this picture and I can't tell if it's a good composition or a bad one. Which probably implies the latter. I like the juxtaposition of the big plane under construction as the backdrop to a little Cessna. I like the Boeing insignia in places, and I like that there is some "mess" around...

    Birds - C&C

    1. 2. 3. (Not a bird) I'm not sure which one to keep 1 or 2? I know I should've not cut off the feet but the pictures with the feet in didn't come out well for other reasons (motion blur). #3 is not interesting in terms of animal/pose but is an otherwise good picture, no? PS: I'm a...

    Ducks - C&C

    1. 2. 3. 4. This is my first time posting in a gallery, so forgive me if I do it wrong. I'm not really into ducks, I just thought they were pretty cool subjects to experiment with photography and think about light, composition etc... (I'm a real beginner). In terms of processing...

My pictures tend to be mostly of my kid and family (portraits) but I'd also like to get into architecture, planes, and some nature. I also would...
