Default Stonehenge

I'm very new to the world of digital photography, but thought I'd use a trip to Stonehenge today to test my new camera, a Fuji 601 Zoom. Any advice on how to improve pictures would be much appreciated!







I've not done any cropping or editing with the photos yet.

On the silhouette photo you have a ISO setting of 400, you may try and set your camera for 100 or 200 and it will cut down some of the noise in the photo. Happy New Year, Shelton

On the first photo I would crop out the rock formation to the right.

The second picture I would have tried to get the whole formation into the picture.

The third picture has already been addressed.

I like the fourth and fifth pictures as they are.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I noticed afterwards that the third picture was pretty noisy, but at the moment, a lot of my shooting is just trial and error, I'm not really visualising yet what sort of aperture/ISO/shutter speed I should be using, etc. Hopefully will come with practice.

Yeah, the placement of the rock formation in the first two isn't central, although I did think it would make a change to have slightly different positioning. I was also in a bit of a hurry - the crow (?) had just landed, and I wanted it in the pic before it disappeared

The rock surfaces in 1 and 2 are very attractive. They look even better if you apply a little sharpening with whatever photo programme you use.
