- Can others edit my Photos
- Photos OK to edit
I have been into photography for about 6 months. Like many people probably did, I dove right in. Constantly reading books and the internet trying to improve. Of course, I learned a lot quickly. I bought a nice flash and some lenses to go along with my D40. I was really pleased with quite a few photos I took. However, I just feel I'm going nowhere. I just got back from a trip to Paris and I'm finally done editing my photos (does it take anyone else forever?) and was disappointed. I got a couple OK shots, but none that I saw on my computer and said, "I'm posting that one." Could be that the more I know, the more I critique my own photos. However you would think if that was the case, I would improve. Who knows, I'm just curious to see if anyone else has had this go on, and how you got out of the rut. The good news is that I'm not foolish enough to think a more expensive camera will help! (but I did just order some Cactus V4's)

Yeah it happens to everyone. Maybe try shooting something different from what you noramlly shoot as well. And I didnt see anything wrong with what you have shot.Thanks everyone for the input. I think you guys hit it the nail on the head, talking about hitting a plateau/wall. That's what seems to be happening. Just like anything, I'm sure I'll break through it. I was just learning so much so fast, I guess I wanted to keep that pace. I realize that is not possible, but it can be frustrating at times. Thanks again.
