Some lovely colourful pictures there mate. What camera do you use?
thanks pete, some where taken with my casio ex-Z50 and a couple with my panny FZ20 (still playing with that though)
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?
thanks pete, had tweaked a couple on picasa myself overlooked that one, a nice improvement
Cool, that straightening tool is a dream...
Nice Colourful collection...Just what have you done to the people???
it's amazing what an ak47 hanging over your shoulder can do.
Where those shots taken in North Korea????
Beachy, be careful, they are watching you
hey pete with 3 women on the go your the one who should be looking over your shoulder, just joking honestly. i'm just to damn jealous
Some great shots there Beachy. Love the one of the duck in the reeds and the two that Pete straightened for you (great colours)
You got anymore...?
cheers simon, i have taken some more over the last couple of weeks i'm just in the process of sorting them out and maybe a few tweaks here and there on picasa, just trying to get the time to post them all as i have been working all this weekend, also trying to host them in photobucket and trying to work out how to do that,so hopefully i will post them soon, thanks for all your kind comments guys.
so i am now hosting my photos in photobucket.com, so could someone please slowly guide me through how to set up the link from my photo thread to my photobucket album as i have'nt a clue how to do it thanks in advance.
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.
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.
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.
Done! I've never seen a thread that restricts itself to one person!
Nice photos anyway.
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.
No worries, I didn't realise! Yours is the only thread I've seen, so maybe the others are slack!
Some great shots there, I especially like the rich colours of the sky and water in callake01.jpg.
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
The 1st gutarist doesn't like someone in the crowd!
Some really nice pictures there, greal album stuff.
The candid of the guy with the white hat is really good, would have made a great entry to the August competition
mmm now theres a thought, thanks steve
thanks for your comments gordon, always good to get some good constructive critque, i will try bear them in mind for next time
there seemed to be a lot of building/maintenance work going on around westminster when i was there which always make it difficult for stopping to take photos, dust etc so i was quite pleased to get a couple of good shots of good old big ben
