Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
Hi everyone, i decided to buy a dslr about 6months ago and take up photography as a hobby to try to deal with all of the stress in my life. I have really enjoyed learning to use a camera and am amazed at how therapeutic it can really be. I have thousands of pictures saved on my hard drive and have decided to share them with others as nothing is every really enjoyed unless shared with someone else. Feel free to criticize or give me tips. I will post more later. The images have been re-sized to be more internet friendly.

All photos were taken with an Olympus E-420 and 14-42 kit lens.




I like #1and #3.. #4 is a good picture just the dirty sand (the grass growing up all over) distracts me... If this was on a clearer part of the beach it would of been nice, and even in bw. But great pics!
I think #1 is perfect. #2 and #3 are both awesome. I agree that #4 would be better if it was taken on a cleaner part of the beach. Crystal clear shots though.
Thanks ChristinaW. Thanks Polyphony as well. The beach where I live isn't really conducive to finding clean sand. The seagrass is there so that the sand will not wash away. Maybe I could crop it so that it looked a little better. I will play around with black and white in photoshop as well. Here is a couple more.

Favorite is #3. Great shot on that. Seems to me that all the photos have good color and contrast and pretty sharp as well. Good job and welcome to the forum.

Oh yeah just a tip, people on here want you to put # before your picture so it's easier for us to comment on like #1, #2, #3 before the picture.
I like the one you just posted of the shells. In this shot, I'd actually like to see a little bit more depth of field. I want to see more of the shells. Not all, but more :mrgreen:
These are very well done. Kudos! You have an eye for composition and you pick good subjects.

#3 and the one of the shells could both use some more depth of field (higher f/#). I would have liked to have seen the seeds on the dandelion in focus. It still looks stunning as it is! Same for the shells, it's just a bit shallow for my tastes.

The last one you posted doesn't do anything for me, I'm afraid. But 5 out of 6 isn't bad!

Welcome to the forums, I hope to see more.
Yeah, I tend to get really into shallow DOF. I have a picture of the shells with a wider DOF I will just have to search for it.



I love the colors in your photos. Especially the ones along the beach are excellent!:thumbup:
