My wife and I bought this camera on our honeymoon to take some pictures. I have a S2is and loved it but wanted something more. I just wanted to know what everyone thought of a few of my more favorite photos of the trip. I don't know much about picture taking so be kind... but honest. All are untouched except the stitched pano shot obviously. Thanks!!

8ballrj,

Nice pictures, what kind of lens did you use?

Well, I put a big beercan on order and we will see if I can do better with it. Our dogs don't like anything that is black and clicks(camera, loading pistol, loading rifle) even though they have never heard any of them be loud or frightening. So, I am going to see if I can get some pics of them from a good ways off. Hopefully the color and sharpness of the big beercan will pay off. Ill post pics soon.

You've got some nice photos. One suggestion for your landscape shots - do a google on 'rule of thirds' - you have a very common issue which is everything is centered. It's what common sense tells you that you should do. But the brain of the viewer doesn't work like that. You'll be surprised what a dramatic difference it makes when start trying to incorporate something as simple as the rule of thirds into your photography.

Correct you are. But, I just couldn't get passed the beautiful colors and blue skies. I had just gotten a Circular Polarizer and wanted to see in some of the pics how it made a difference. When I start taking pictures for art rather than recording memories I will start hitting the thirds hard . Thanks a ton for the reminder!

I have edited some of the photos and added a new lens to the stable(pristine Big Beercan) and I just bought a 17-50 Tamrom to supplement/replace the kit lens(depends if I can get a sale on Ebay I guess). Here is my collection of favorites:

Here are some teasers (Big Beercan)
