here's a couple of shots from my new Digital Rebel!

i'm loving this camera....i believe the viewfinder makes me think a little more in terms of composition, making sure there isn't anything distracting in the photo

lol, doesn't mean these shots prove anything...but yeah...lol

enjoy

Vito

(this shot, i really liked the curving trench in the road leading to the barn...wat do you think?)

I like the composition of the first one, but it seems like the foreground (roadway) is too dominating. Subject to me should be the barn ultimately, no? Seems a little soft too, but hey, you're just starting to learn the new camera. Second photo seems a little overexposed. Have a blast with your new machine. Cheers....thekman

Vito,

I had to look at the first photo 3 times before I figured out what trench you were talking about. It isn't obvious enough to be the subject of the photo IMHO. I see where you were going with it though. Perhaps if you could "enhance" it a bit (darken just the trench?)

I like the subject in the second photo, but it seems overexposed to me as well.

Keep up the great work!

hey guys! thanks for looking

i appreciate it

i see your point kman...i was so excited about the sweet "leading line" that i made it too dominating...instead of using it to point to the barn, it made it too big a part of the photo, making more the subject than the barn

thanks for pointing that out

i'll see wat i can do about the second one...it isn't badly overexposed (except for the sky...but i think that adds to the dying winter-ish feel of the picture.

thanks again for looking!

Vito

Or... you could look at it this way, "it's not the destination, it's the journey." Emphasizing the road is not necessarily bad. I might do a little PS to maybe blur the sides and maybe even the barn to make the road itself the centre of attention.

My two cents, which as you know, (the Canadian dollar not being worth that much) add up to very little.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

you were right alady! the viewfinder makes this camera seem more "real"...

i do miss having the lcd flip out...i haven't had to lay down in the mud to see through the viewfinder...so i haven't really missed it yet

You can get the Canon right-angle finder adapter for this situation. But is is seriously overpriced for what it does, close to 200$cdn I believe.

I think lying down in the mud is more fun anyway :blah:
