    Beginner pics

    If you don't mind, can you post an unedited version of the first? It seems a little too saturated, but i don't know if it came out that way straight out of the camera. Editing is part of the learning process after all!

    Need advice: Shooting in Costa Rica

    I don't think the flash will be absolutely necessary, but it will of course make certain situations easier. That is assuming that you'll be outside during the day most of your time. VR will help otherwise. Good luck!

    The darkness

    your last edit is great. I wouldnt change a thing about it. There's not terribly much more you can do anyway with that exposure. Keep it up! :]

    My Valley Bulldog Portrait C&C Please

    It looks great! Yes, teh focus is slightly off, but it's negligible. I think the background color is a little too close to the dog's colors, but that's just me. I like the bokeh and the vignetting is a nice touch in my opinion. The cat tail picture i'm not a fan of though. The colors are to...

    CC Please... Getting there???

    Hey, you're correct, you should technically crop the side they aren't looking towards. Ideally you should have moved yourself more to the right of them so the gazebo doesn't become a distracting background. Don't be afraid to position people where you need them! Overall good stuff though :] oh...

    Group 1 Rule of Thirds C&C

    i LOVE the skateboard shot's composition. i think the location of the guy is perfect. The first picture is ok, though the off-center location of the couple horizontally is kinda throwing me off.

    Sky COMPLETELY blown out even with CP =[

    so let me just get one more thing straight. polarizers don't reduce light enough even to prevent a blown out sky?

    Sky COMPLETELY blown out even with CP =[

    hey guys, i went to NYC and did some random shooting to see what i could get. i have a sigma 17-70 and a hoya CP. there were lots of clouds in the sky but plenty of blue as well. most of my picture(s) was buildings and about 1/3 was sky, and no matter where the polarizer was positioned, the sky...

    NIVLEK presents: 3 random shots.

    for the third i recommend a more neutral background. if you went around him and took the shot with a more solid background then it would have made him stand out more. right now his head kinda blends in with the trees
