    Damn too slow.

    Here's a flower. No I don't have fancy frames and I haven't played around with settings or any of that. I am lazy.

    Sheri: I like that one a lot. Nice comp and all that jazz. I would have named the thread "PHOTOGENOCIDE".

    Smrt Hero: The photo seems to lack some punch. I personally don't feel like there's enough contrast between the subject/ground. Then again, I've been blowing out highlights left and right lately, so don't take my word for it. :roll:

    It might also have somthing to do with the "divided" image, with a lot of blossoms on the right and nothing on the left. It feels unbalanced. I guess this a totally unrelated complaint.

    Is there any chance you have a larger res version of this? It's stunning and I would cherish it as a desktop! 1600x1200 would be ideal, but whatever you have is fine.

    I'm reading a book on taking better photos, and this is a way better example of movement from the foreground to the background than the one in the book. That's rad!



    Sheir, thats a lovely picture of flowers.

    Shake, that last one reminds me of this photo I took yesterday at the Pita Pit, but it was after I'd already eaten half of the pita. I was just messing around, took the photo, then looked at it and went, 'Man, that is unappetizing.'

    It's not that yours looks unappetizing, it just reminded me cuz it was food. XD

    Some day, I'll get better at portraits.

    Hey look, I focused on the wrong eye. gg fgt

    Sheri: It's nice to know I can bring out all these bad memories for you. If you thing partially eaten food looks unappetizing, just imagine partially digested food.

    About those two portraits. I like the cropping/values/expressions in both of them. Are you focusing manually? If you're using a D50/D70 (which I think you are), manual focus can be damn tricky. That viewfinder is so small and my eyes are starting to go. I'm forced to trust the autofocus because my eyes can't get the job done. ONce I scrounge together some money I'm thinking about buying that new D80 just for the larger viewfinder. :|


    Pope: That's cuz I do everything better than books. I'm perfect like that.

    "Dood, do you know shake?"

    "Yeah, he smarter than BOOKS!"

    I overhear conversations like that every day.

    JRosey: Your second shot is really nice. In some (good) ways, it reminds me of a mid-90's Nine Inch Nails video.

    Your signature looks like a bird pooped on your border.

    Blasphemer, I'm a Canon user. D60.

    Also, yes, I am focusing manually, which is why I miss so often. I figure it's better to practice and get it wrong than to depend on autofocus all the time.

    Yeah, I would turn down the saturation on a few of those, especially the second shot. I like the black and white one, though I'd prefer it without the people in the top-right.

    Went rumaging through my hard drive this morning and found this shot of Trunk Bay in St. John from a cruise a few years ago. Before I really got into photography (even in the least bit), but I thought it was a gorgeous shot regardless.

    I do have a larger version... buuut don't really know how to host/link it I just have a free photobucket account and if I can do it with that I haven't figured it out yet :? if you know how lemme know and I'll put a link ASAP

    In your account settings in photobucket you can change the max file size to 1024k (1mb). If you're using photoshop and "save for web" instead of "save as" you cna lower the quality to ~85% and you'll see below what the file size is. Between 85% and 100% should get you to 1mb or less.

    Otherwise, I can receive emails up to 5mb or so, I'll send you my email addy in a PM.

    THANKS!!

    Yeah saturation is pretty bad on the batman one haha. I just thought the colors might go well with it, but thanks for the crits :) I'll fix some right now..

    I was thinking about editing the b&w photo, but I got lazy. I should try that today.. or soon, cuz those people in the corner bother me, too.

    Shiverz: thanks :) that seal was straight up gangster. his eyes were always lows and he just sits on that rock and howls/waves his flipper all day.
