Taken with a Rebel XTi, on Automatic Setting.... yes I am new.

Photoshop Elements 5.0. Used Quick Fix to fix the shadows. Then layered in the Grayscale to bring out the blue of the glass.

Nothing yet! I am very new.... This is my first "high grade" camera and I am just getting started learning how to use it. I am not pleased with many of my other pics yet etc. I have only been doing this for about 1 week... haha

Thank you for your compliments! I appreciate the feedback! I will post more this weekend maybe.

That's a nice image and I think you've taken a picture or two before. You'll really enjoy the new capabilities with your Canon.

I have taken pictures before yes, but with a crummy point and shoot... never in this context... mostly just pictures from "parties" or "family gatherings" but never anything for Photography as "Art" so this is pretty new idea... I was lucky on the composition of this one lol

I do like the new Canon, my Father In-law turned me on to the idea. I guess only time will tell.

P.S. I forgot to say... House on the Rock is a place in Spring Green Wisconsin. If you ever have a chance check it out, some great photo opportunities there. Supposedly on a clear day you can see 32 miles of landscape... I took some shots, but they were terrible so they wont be seen here!

thisis a nice shot

selective colouring works well and mono covesion really brings out the texture in the widow frame

i think for this shot an excelent comp would have beena portriat ratio and linning the window frame along the edge of the photo frame creating a frame within a frame. i think that combind with the selective clouring would have really worked.

I think in a situation where youcan naturally frame something up (ofcoourse window frame, cave mouth, doorways etc) really gives a sense of presence to the shot.

i did a quick crop to show you what i mean wit the exisint image. i also did some cloning to put in a fake top level on the window frame to frame the shot up.



hope you dont mind.
