honestly i find it an awkward crop.. if you are going to use some shrubbery as foreground for a sunset, it is better to back off a bit and get the whole plant (if it is interesting)... right now, just some branches coming out of nowhere do not add much to the scene.. i would rather see the horizon and a more natural looking foreground.. also, the shot is just a bit dark on the top part... i think by including more of the horizon you would have emphasized not only the colors better but had a more natural looking composition as well..

thanks for sharing

Yep... All that grey in the top was kinda wasted. The picture is two pictures almost
right in half. You said you had more pictures... Any with the classic composition? {1/3s rule}

Dale,

I sure would like to show you some shots with classic composition. Sadly, I have only been doing this for a few weeks and have no idea what that is. I just learned what an f/stop is last week. Any advice?

Aaron you've had your S9000 a very short while and it seems you are getting to grips with it just fine. It's not an easy camera to start off with. I've had the S9500 (the Euro version) since November. You do seem to have the inclination and enthusiasm, all that other stuff just happens along the way I'm sure.

Here's a suggested perpetual plan to garuantee improvement . . .
  • Take loads and loads of pics[/*]
  • Post them here[/*]
  • Take the advice and comments of the dudes on here[/*]
  • Put the advice in practice by taking loads and loads of pics[/*]
  • Post them here[/*]

Aaron,

Classic or "Rule of thirds"is where you try to place points of interest in positions away from the middle. They should be a third from the edge. But here is a couple of pictures that better explain. Remember it's a rule and not a law. I shoot a lot of baseball and break it all the time there. But you picture would have truly benefited from it.
