Thanks shoturtle. aperture sounds cool.

Thanks Hards80. I've gotten some great advice already from yourself and others.

Found an interesting subject today. It snowed another .8" in town last night followed by freezing fog.

thats a nice spot.

brighten the snow a bit and don't cut off the sides and tops of the trees and it would be even better.

Hi, and thank you for the comments. It is kinda dark. I'll try to change that this evening.

I really hated to cut off the sides and top, but there were snow piles with dirt in them, fences, trees, things that may have detracted from the scene. So I zoomed in just enough to exclude them. In retrospect, I should have taken some of each to decide later. Or perhaps my wife could have removed them with Photoshop ?

Could someone explain Aspect Ratio please ? Like what it is, what it's useful for, and what ratio is best for what purpose ? I have 4:3, 3:2, 16:9

Thanks !

I am not a very good with explaining in technical terms. The two most common in crop dslr are 3:2 and 4:3 compared to full frame.

But here is a link on aspect ratios, for better understanding. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspect_ratio_(image)

Thanks shoturtle. So perhaps the 4:3 and 3:2 are good for portraits and general photos... 16:9 might be good for landscapes, sunsets, etc ?

I would not say that exactly,

Both 4:3 and 3:2 which is aps-c, are commonly uses for landscapes and seascapes photos. Look at the olympus and there are some really nice landscapes with 4:3, and there are allot of canon, nikon, pentax photo of landscapes also.
