Ok, as for opinions and I'll give one.... (I hate it too when I post and it just sits there.)

I'm not a big fan of pictures of the style of the first one. I try to take them too, and then I find they do nothing for me when I look at them later. I don't know what they lack... what is different between when I was there and the picture (is it really just the obvious... I'm not actually there?) There is a bit of chromatic aboration, but not much... less than I expected.

On to the second picture.

It looks a little out of focus to me, or maybe the DOF isn't as large as I'd like? To me, it is a setting that had potential but this perspective doesn't grab me. I might have tried a macro shot (if you had the equipment... I don't, actually) of that large water droplet on the right most flower.

It's also slightly over exposed. You don't say what camera you used... if it has a histogram, you should use it to double check exposure. Personally, I forget to do it.... I get into a grove and don't look. But I should, as I blow it some too.

Thanks very much, I am just really starting to get into Dphotography a bit, and until your reply I never even noticed the second picture was over exposed :shock: .

As far as the camera I used, I had a powershot S230 I used to take the pictures, just a point and shoot really.


Thanks very much for your input

No problem. I post things here and get no answer some times. So I try to comment on others when they get nothing. The least I can do. One way to get responces is to ask specific questions. I posted something that went no where until I asked about a few things that bugged me about the pictures. That got the conversation started.

Considering the camera you used, I think that first picture came out quite well. That is a middle of the line camera functionality-wise. It's really aimed at the point-and-shoot crowd and can't do some of the things you'll need to get good photos in the tricky situations.

Keep it up!

haha, and to be honest, I knew what I wanted, but I was sitting in a bier garten in Germany with a friend I was traveling with, after a couple beers I looked up and realize it was amazingly pretty but I couldnt hold the camera up because I couldnt frame the shot at all like I wanted, so I just put the camera on the table and snapped a bunch of pictures. This one came out all right, I like the vibrant green. Anyway, thanks again .
