Those are gorgeous. I especially love the last one...With the first one, though, I took me a second to realize the main focus point was big building.

Here's today, my gorgeous little sister. I already know the picture is noisy, didn't realize my freaking ISO was at 800!!

LOVE the 2nd one! So wild and perfect for a kid! The 1st is a bit color-wise flat. Not sure how to fix that since I don't edit photos beyond turning and adding effects... :P The shrimp are very good, but some are a little fuzzy. Otherwise great job!

Here's mine







Thats me in the stripes. It was the end of the night. Friend's dog looking funny with deer ears.

Here's mine...

I don't really understand what the first and fourth pictures even are...The third one seems just like a snapshot to me, and it's blurry. I do like the second one, though the fish could definately be brighter.

I only have the standard 18/55mm zoom lens...I crawled on my hands and knees on tiny jagged rocks verrryy slowly to get close enough to get this shot. These freakin frogs always see me coming from a mile away and go bury themselves in the mud. I so wish I could afford a good zoom lens.


And here's today with my current foster dog, Levi.

Both great photos! Great photo of the frog! I know how hard it is to get near them.

The portrait is also great. Very clear and sharp.

Gaysport, OH, actually.

The name of the town is weird.

Awesome Picture DPM, It just seems a little bit out of focus.

Heres a portrait shot of my Black Lab..

Nice picture of some buildings, but my eye is drawn to the people in the foreground.

I don't know why but I really like this, it's very unique!

Here's are my first two attempts at being creative. Don't know how well they turned out...

The first shot of the dog with the ducks look a little dark to me, and I feel as if composition could we worked on a bit. I really like the 2nd shot of the dog walking down the road. Nice exposure and composition, seems to tell a story as well. Maybe playing with the f-stop could make it a little more dramatic, feels like it was shot around f8. Dropping it down to possibly f4 or f2.8 could have made the background fall out of focus more and really made your eye go to the dog

So I'm not really a fan of doing portraits, it's not my thing. I like being in the studio working with products that don't move and I like having control of lighting. But I had a friend ask me to do their engagement photos and I couldn't say no to them. He was the best man in my wedding so he's a good friend so I figured I would give it a try. First time doing portraits so be nice
