Hi folks,

I just thought I'd share some photos I took whilst out walking yesterday in Culzean Castle Estate in Ayrshire, Scotland. It was a gorgeous Autumn/Winter day, and a great opportunity to blow the dust of my camera.

Most of these are taken with my EF 50mm f1.8 and a few with my EF-S 10-22mm (new purchase). All are handheld so please forgive the fact that they are not razor sharp.

Criticism is much appreciated and only seen by me as a way to improve.

As you will see the theme of the day was mainly close-ups. My apologies if it's a bit pic heavy but I just didn't know when to stop ;)

Compositions here are excellent. Great work. If I had one comment to make it would be that some lack contrast - looks like the ones from the 50mm lens. Those shot with the 10-22 look great.

A tweak in photoshop's levels or curves would sort this out easily.
 
Cheers JD,

I think I see what you mean regarding the contrast now that I'm on a different PC - they looked a lot more colourful on my 'TrueLife' display at home. The photos from the 50mm lens were mostly taken in places where the light wasn't at it's best (under tree coverage etc.) so that probably didn't help much.

When it comes to PP I try hard not to overcook my photos, but on the otherhand it's quite easy to not cook them enough. I'll tweak them a bit in PS later on and repost a few of them.
