I love the color and composition of the first. It is a typical shot, but I think it is a very well done typical shot. I like how crisp it is with the fast shutter speed vs a slower one. Don't get me wrong, I love playing with slow shutter speeds and water, but I like this one just the way it is.

well i wouldnt call it an "everyday shot" but youre entitled to your opinion. maybe what you need to understand is on a very bright day i would have needed more equipment to get a slower shutter speed shot. a filter for one, which i dont yet have. but had i chosen that as my type of shot i probably would have turned up later in the day and attempted it in lower light, as this was a particularly sunny day. thanks though for feeling the need to leave a rather negative comment, i'll remember to do the same on some of your less than impressive efforts in the future.

also i'd like to thank jeephotog for the kind compliment in his comment of the shot i DID take, and for his suggestion for another idea in a positive manner

thank you Hoffam19 for your kind words of encouragement. as a new user to DSLR im learning every day. its a large jump from what my old bridge camera was capable of and im sure in time i will get more equipment and broaden my spectrum of abilities to please more of my "peers" pardon the pun. (intended)

regards,
john

I carry around a 0-8 variable ND filter as a standard piece of equipment so I can control the light rather than having it control me. I didnt say your shot was bad, so I dont understand your being upset at my comments. I was only reinforcing jeephotogs remarks which you ignored. My comments were given to give you a different perspective from my experience. Your shot is typical and ordinary. Nothing special about it as far as composition, light, color, clarity. They all work but there is no wow factor. But it seems you are incapable of taking any positive criticism so I will just ignore you from now on.

suits me fine Bynx. your input isnt positive in any way. contructive at a stretch and i hadnt ignored jeephotog, i mearly hadnt seen his comment, and thanked him when you pointed it out. as i mentioned, ive only just bought the d5100 and it is, as stated, my first dslr camera. so having an nd filter is something i aim to do once ive had the camera bit longer and purchased a few more accesories. the picture in question is now on a canvas in my dining room and is getting no shortage of "wows" from people who have seen it, thinking i bought it rather than shot it myself. so i'd guess this "every days shot" is a step in the right direct for a novice who does claim to no it all like some!
