Default My first try at this Landscape thing

I just uploaded these shots from my computer. Most are from my trip to the Oregon Coast, others are from around here. I'll upload some more when I get time. Please give me some comments and maybe if you want try modifiying them to see if they can be made better. Thanks,
Speedy

Welcome

Your Scenic series is stunning!

Color so vivid that they remind of what Velvia (color slide
film) can do!

Speedy,

Wonderful start. You do have an eye for composition. A few points to pay attention to improve the impact on the veiwer.

Watch out for those slanted horizons. Sometimes they are necessary but I think in a few cases you do need to keep that in the back of your ehad as you shoot or simply use an editor to correct them, e.g. the first shot of the birds and the sunset.

This may be due to my moniotr but the Humbug mtn shot is a bit darker than necessary. I think a tad lighter shot would increase the impact of the waves washing ashore and also watch the sliding horizon.

The lighthouse shot is very good.

Aloha.

Thanks for the tips, I'll keep them in mind. I wasn't using a tripod for any pictures, and it was windy, so keeping the camera steady was TOUGH. Thanks again for the tips.
