Enter the Wanabee photography enthusiast, armed with his Olympus D-560 on his trip to yosemite, keep in mind I'm working with a $150 camera,



A dead tree in the valley with the dry yosemite falls in the background:


The regylar Picture of Half dome



A waterfall with a rainbow



So other than get a new camera what else can I do to improve?

Shrimpy, actually all are fairly nice shots. but, remember the guidelines for critiques, only 1 picture at a time. read the 1st post in this forum.:-)

p.s. sorryJim C. if i overstepped my bounds about the rules.

ORIGINAL: I had read that but since they are thumbnails rather than full size shots I din't think anyone wouldll have to much of a problem, for future reference do even thumbnail images need to be seperated?,


EDIT: Please excuse my misinterpritation of the rules, I had thought it meant one picture per post rather than per thread, I well keep this in mind in the future and please forget how stuped I may have sounded:angry:

Shrimpy, the idea of only one pic per critique is that it is easier to focus on just one picture than many. it's not the size that matters as much as the quantity.

Shrimpy,

Keep posting.


I like the first two and have no comment in critique.

The last one has darkness that could be cropped out and that tree should be as well it is a definite distraction to the center of interest which I believe to be the rainbow in the waterfall.

Thanks everyone,

Nice cropvIZnquest, definitly makes the best of it, did you purposly leave in a bit of tree though?, I would assume it's neccessary to get the waterfall so I'll get to work reconstructing the background

I hope to continue maximizing the use of my camera,

The shrimp





Theres also this waterfall picture, The camera angle is really wierd and I'm still trying to figure out what I was thinking, can anyone think of any good angle for it? (other then level)

I would have to say from that angle you were flirtin' with disaster if you did not have your wits about you. I had to go to f11 to see the full picture on your webhost site.

A very tight close up look. One would have to look at this at a distance to appreciate this shot.

Glad you did not fall in.

Good work shrimpy. What a good eye you have for composition. Nature does not cater to us for custom lighting. Considering your request, my advice is just keep on doing what you do. And keep posting. Best regards,
