Nice colors I think the bushes are intentionally added in the frame. Bushes are more illuminated than the building though. Overall a good shot

Here's a shot of a Squirrel. Pretty warm colors but I still like it -

That is a very cute squirrel. But where's his tail?! LOL I think the blue sky compliments the squirrel's coloring well.

I've been playing around with my new FujiFilm S4200

Looking to get rid of those trimmings? PM me!

This is just a pic I took from my hotel room in Binghamton, NY:

Nice picture, know it's not technically above me and I don't have another picture but that picture was with a Nikon, the name escapes me at the moment... Lost in luggage coming back from break, it was a good camera, as for the gopro that's also gone now, lost skiing, I've driven past this spot nearly a thousand times to and from tournaments, great setting. The one tree right in the front i think takes away from the church in the back, only thing I don't like about it

Cute dog, but it seems a little out of focus to me.

A picture from an impromptu photoshoot with my brother today, at the lake.

That's a nice capture. Looks like good lighting and focus.

Thanks, I tried to get them to cut down the tree before I took the picture, but they said no. The shot was taken from the top floor of a nearby hotel.

Here's a portrait shot I took. Good subject, very cooperative and always has a smile.

Adorable, I love it. The spot of dirt on the right side of him is bothering me, though.

I see nothing wrong with this photo.

All of the following were taken with an Olympus SP-565UZ.

Here are a couple of mine from a wedding I attended. I was NOT the official photographer, just a guest with a camera.


This is the bride's father with the bride's niece



This was taken at Yellowstone and is unedited

Those are all composed very nicely. I think I like #2 (with the baby) the best. #3 and #4 could use some more contrast.

This was taken with my Canon 60mm macro:



P.S. I am now a Planted Tank Guru so be nice, LOL.

Specially like the water droplets on the leaf.

I really like the picture of the building, does it actually curve in like that or is that an effect from the picture? I am a photo n00b so maybe it could be a little shraper around top/ try to cut out some of the sunlight.

I just have a point and shoot and my photos are from facebook so not the highest res., looking at getting a Nex 6 because I like taking pics so much. Here are a few from a summer or two ago.

The second two look like they could be a bit sharper.
The first one is interesting, I like it, but I'd try using the rule of thirds with that one.

At the lake...

I love B&W's. Especially the shrapness and high contrast in this one. I am reticent in critiquing the underexposure of her face, because it may just be a stylistic preference, however, since it seems to be the main subject, it probably would have been best to leave the detail.
Otherwise a very well composed shot! Very clean.

Here's one of mine, still brand new to digital.

Nightscapes especially stars really fascinate me. I wanna capture "Aurora" once. Cool picture BTW. Try to make your frame without the electric wires. They distract.

Here's a startrail I took last year. There was a road and I didnt notice when I set my camera but them some cars passed through the road and so you can see the burning horizon. Over a period of 2 hours I took around 90-100 shots of 6-10 seconds and then stacked them. It was a no moon night.

That's a nice startrail shot. I like the gradient in the sky from purple to dark blue. Keeping with the space theme, here's a morning moon shot I took not to long ago.
