Default Looking for comments (first SLR photos)

Hi folks,

I just remembered I can upload photos to Webshots, although it looks like they've changed slightly. Might have to pony up for a "premium" membership, but for now this'll work.

Recently took a handfull of shots with my Digital Rebel out here in Hawai'i (island of O'ahu). The panorama was created using the "photo stitcher" that came with the Canon softwere and is my first attempt at doing anything like that. It was taken with the standard 18-55mm EF-S lens I believe at or near 18mm. Can't recall what the other settings were off the top of my head.

The 2nd photo was "down the road" a bit at a place called Kailua Bay. (Kaneohe Bay is just over the tree line on the far side of the photo). For this one I tried using a circular polarizing filter - also a first for me. Took a few shots over at Kaneohe Bay and found out just how easy it is to overdo it!

If any of the more experienced photographers (or anyone in general!) have comments on them I'd love to hear 'em. I'm really excited about SLR photography, and I want to try all sorts of things.

(edit) Doh! It would help if I put the URL in.
http://community.webshots.com/user/latkaak (you know, if I post the correct URL it works a lot better!)

(edit #2)
Kailua Bay photo info - EF-S Lens at 22mm, f/8, 1/160th exposure at ISO-100

Thanks (and aloha!),
Andy

Yes, you did a very nice stitching job in the pano shot.

I look at it and think... it's a bit under 40 degrees here, I wish I was there.

Cold and wet can be good too. Makes 'ya appreciate the good, sunny days! (What am I saying? I live in Hawaii! Cold for us is 70 degrees Farenheit).

Took some more shots yesterday of downtown Honolulu with my polarizing filter on. Somehow I goofed and set the camera to ISO1600. Doh! Thankfully NeatImage cleans up the ones I like pretty nice.

Thank you all for your comments!

Hello Latka, just saw ur photo album as well, awesome shot

Especially the collage made with the stitch program

Try 180 degree next time, here in Eastern Canada it's too "grey" right now to try anything like that.

Ciao !

I think I will - and this time I'm going to use a tripod.

Just made my first trip to Canada this year - up to Vancouver. What a beautiful city!
