    Nice one. As we are all here to help each other learn, I copied your pic and straightened the horizon in Picasa2. What do you think?

    Pete.

    Sure,

    1. Upload a photo to photobucket.

    2. When it appears there, underneath will be three various html lines or image tags. Highlight the bottom tag and right click, select copy or use the keyboard to copy it by pressing control and c.

    Useful to have two browsers open at this point.


    3. Then when you are posting here, right click and select paste or control and V via the keyboard. The image tag should then appear on your post.


    Quite easy and if you have any probs let us know. Remember to keep the pic within the forum limits.

    Hope this helps.

    Pete.

    Great stuff. Spot on and some excellent framing in your selection of pictures. For me symmetry is everything and you have that bang on. Great pics. :thumbsup:

    thanks for your positive comments pete, i'm finding i'm starting to compose shots a bit better now just by taking more time,just got to start getting the settings right now and get out of auto focus mode,also beginning to wish i had waited now and gone down the dslr route,(after seeing some of the great photos on here) still i think i will keep the FZ20 for a few more months till i get better then think about trading it in.:smashin:

    thanks geoff, sorry if you were offended but in no way was it meant like that,if you look on this section you will see that everyone on here has there own photo thread or album,why not start one yourself as judging by the photo you put on here it looks like you have some great pics already. :thumbsup:

    Like your BigBen shot. I drive past Westminster and the Abbey lot these days and always wondered about trying to stop and take some pics.

    Your shot fo the gardens: I wonder if you've framed it so that the acute angle in front of the rosebed was placed directly at the corner of the frame if this would have then create another triangular area of sky at topleft to balance it out. Might have looked a bit wierd with the cars on left but something to think about if you are in same situation.

    Wheel over the gardens is nice composition to me and, well, you can't go wrong with a pint....

    first pic I ever took with my DSLR
