This shows maturity on your part and you should be applauded for that.

and i have a question is it wrong to seek more help when i get just a little from a photographer at an art fair that is trying to pay attention to her customers. she had some great tips but i thought i might find more here
Of course not. But you initially gave the impression there were many Pro's in your corner. This is the best site to get almost any advice you want. While advice from even one professional can be invaluable and not to be sniffed at, there are many photographers, professional or otherwise who can help you here, and collectively, will solve any issues you may have.

ive been here for a week and everyone seems to be against me and my hobby it seems that all photographers are to themselves?
PhotoEcosse answered that one right. It betrays your opening sentence. No one is against you. I felt you had the wrong attitude when it came to thebroadband/dial up issue but I realize that at 15 yrs old you probably don't have the responsibility for paying for your broadband connection,and can't appreciate in general the cost of living to someone who does. I also spelled out the other reasons why some may not have a broadband connection. If all photographers were to themselves then they would likely not be here at all. They may view the boards for information but would not respond in their thousands as they do.

i dont know im just a kid so i guess ill take my business elsewhere if im not accepted here. farewell if i do decide to leave. Ty

That is your choice, but if everybody left because of a spat or minor disagreement. or they didn't like what someone said, there would probably be about 7 members left !!

You said at the beginning of your last post that you would "most definitely take your point in to consideration". That's what it was, a point about your attitude, not a direct all out attack on you, so please take it in to consideration. You will make mistakes again, so will I, so will most others. But somebody tells you, you listen, you decide whether you agree with them or not, then move on.

PS thanks to the people who did offer me tips and i hope that
God will bless you.
See, people did give you tips. But I think that'suncharitable of you to suggest that God will only bless those that help you. I thought all you God fearing folk believed that God loved everyone the same, warts and all. Just kidding.

I said, "So if you would like help and advice, ease up, then you will be very welcome".

Welcome Ty.

Here's an idea...try to take a break & relax before you post. Try reading all the forums (that interest you) for a few weeks before you post. Getting to know the group dynamics will make your understanding (& your posts) better suited (& better received). Ask questions if you have them & try to think out & appreciate the answers you get. Taking small steps into the forums is much better than jumping in full tilt (& that's for any forum...not just these).

I took a look at your tennis shots and you've done well to capture the action in many of them. The exposure looks about right but the colours look a bit desaturated, that may just be the way they were.On the downside many appear to be slightly out of focus. It quite a few the net appears to be in focus but your main subject is out of focus. In some I'm not sure about the focus it looks about there but the reduced size of the photos makes them look a bit soft in places.
