Here are a few photos from my recent trip to Savannah, Georgia. It was my first time in that city and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I only wish I had more time to photograph the city!!!

Anyway I'm just not starting to use my Rebel XT which I purchased less than 1 month ago. It's my first DSLR and I'm still learning all of the features and controls. The lenses I have at this moment are the kit EFS 18-55 and the EF 75-300 non-IS.
Constructive comments welcome.

My favourite is the 2nd one. If only you were able to include a little bit to top of the cupola in the frame.
The fifth one is also very remarkable but for the cropped feet! I wish I studied sculpture at that academy :-) These corinth capitals and my ardent feel for antiquity...
Your photos suggest that this place has a great overall potential for its architectural texture of brick and stone.
Thanks for sharing, Motegi.

Thanks for the compliments!

Savannah, Georgia is home to one of the largest arts schools in the United States of America. The school is called the Savannah College of Arts and Design and they own much of the property in and around Savannah.

The city has a great deal fo history and many very interesting areas to take photographs.

I admit I was quite crop-happy with my photos but Ifelt the needto emphasize certain areas of each photograph and really liked the extra wide or extra tall aspect ratios.

I lived in Savannah for a little over 3 years and I still miss it today. These are very nice pictures and you show a good depth of field on them. I feel that the top 2 are a little too tightly cropped but it does help to convey a certain look.

Did you get a picture of the Forest Gump bench or how about the Mercer house?

Savannah has to be one of the most beautiful cities I've seen in the US and I hope to be stationed there one more time.

Keep up the good work and you will find improvements in all your pictures.

Savannah is nice city to visit(not that I'm biased or anything). :-)
