lol.

Sometimes I don't feel like bringing out "the big rig" (ie the 20D).

It sorta worked like this.

I was talking to my neighbour about not having good enough snow tires on her Volvo, when I noticed a nice sunset behind the home next to mine.

I took out my brand spanking new Canon Powershot S80 sitting in my pocket, and clicked a couple of shots.

Upon reviewing it on my monitor, I noticed the foreground looked a little questionable, but then I thought "well, winter is kind of rough and tough".

I then looked at the rest of the shot, thinking it was maybe not totally sharp, and realized I'd have to reduce it to 200K to post it on this forum, which will result in further loss of quality.

So I posted the photo, thinking that if people were as critical as I am of photos, I'd likely wear some critical responses which, I might add, are usually fairly perceptive.

All in all, I'm okay with the photo and pretty happy with the responses!

I've noticed people's photos improve over time as a result of posting and getting feedback.

So Aumma, I had to laugh when I saw your comment.

It's just another day and another photograph!

Terry

Luis,

It has nothing to do with what camera he used. This is Critiques. That's a messy
shot. One can "get-away-with" jacking up the ISO on a 20D (to a point) but a
dig cam is going to give you noise a plenty and this photo has it. I only mention the
20 D because I know Terry has one and is VERY good with it. There isn't
anything here that couldn't have been dealt with at the time of the shot or in PP.
We're supposed to point out these things in this forum so the we all learn from the
experience. We owe that to each other... We're all here to become better
photographers. Every one of us has a"Pretty" picture just a mouse click away from
here, that we wouldn't dare put up because we already know what we did wrong.
Few of us are willing to put up their mistakes and say this is what i did wrong.
( I have ) So we are here to point out this stuff so EVERYONE benefits.
Terry knew what was going on here before he posted.

This picture is a "20 Footer". Looks great until you get close.

PS: Terry...
It is a pretty picture. With issues... I know you knew that before you posted.
I pointed it out so some of the younger people and newbies would know what to look for in their own pictures.

Yah, why I like this forum is because people tell you the truth about your shot sometimes the hard way and sometimes with a sense of humour. I am 100% sure that I have improved for this reason. Usually I will think hard and critically before making a post and that comes with posting, looking at other critiques, and listening to what folks have to say. I have a shot exactly like Terry's except for the snow but dare I post, yet from Terry's I have learnt a lot.

Thanks Terry you have always been very helpful and that we appreciate. Just a comment.

Kind regards.

Jaki.

I am sorry, I didn't want to criticize yourcriticizes, I don't simply have enough knowledge to say nothing elseand my English is too poorto express with fineness what I mean. I know that this forum is for that, and youalways make your criticizes so that people improve your pictures. I will watch my words next time.
