D.Rodgers Some great photographers on this forum ..heres a couple of my favorites

Ripple Love the jumping doggie! I would die if I could get a shot of my favorite hound like that. Just perfect! For some reason I want to see it in black and white though, since the colors just don't do it for me (that is just nature and time of day, nothing you personally could control). The betta shot is lovely, I love black backgrounds to make the picture pop. The edges of the fish seem kind of fuzzy to me but I don't know how to really control that. Anyways beautiful fish.

I really hope you don't mind, I just loved the flying dog picture so much I really wanted to see it black and white. I love it even more now! I uploaded it in my tumblr which is just where I store pictures, please let me know if you want me to delete it there and here as well since it is totally yours and I know some people are very protective of their pics. So I hope this is ok, I just loved it so much B&W I had to post it for you!



Here are two shots from the garden couple weeks ago. Again just a cheap $30 digi cam.

I pretty much just take photos of my pets and fish. I like to go out and get landscape/nature photos occasionally too, but I am pretty much a noob when it comes to cameras. I have a nice camera that I got for Christmas (because my family noticed I was always snapping pictures). I know how to use the macro setting and change the exposure which was about the only thing I learned how to do in my photography class. It was really more of a photoshop class which doesn't help me, considering I don't have photoshop.

This is one of my more recent photos of one of my crowntail bettas. I haven't touched it with any sort of editing besides cropping out the reflection from my tank lights on the water because it was distracting. What do you think?

I like this photo. I would have like to see all of the fins in this shot since bettas are all about fins. Color is good looks in focus. I would sharpen it up a bit and and reduce the luminance. Photographing bettas is my thing. Wish I could make money doing it.

Here is my personal fav betta photo I took a few years ago.

This is one of my favorite shots of my crazy frisbee dog. It was just Luck.

Ripple I love the subject matter, the colors and the sky. It is really a beautiful picture but it looks too worked on to me. To the point where it looks like a painting. I am sorry, not familiar with photoshop at all so I can't really point out exactly
'what' I should be looking for, just doesn't look like it could be real. Still love it though.

I am totally amateur and usually just take pics of my pets so don't have much more to offer This is Sookie, I melted her - she is just a head now :p



And Marley, who turns 1 in two weeks. My bottle baby boy.



One more, can't resist. A cleft palatte rescue pup who I got to know for a short time. He is sooo greatly missed. I liked this pic even though I probably tweaked it a bit much (in irfanview, the photoshop for dummies)



All were taken with a very bad camera, it was like $30 three years ago. Just some point and click. Most complicated feature was flash on the kitteh photo.

This was somewhere central Oregon-ish.


Harvard Square

I love waterfall pictures but unfortunately the beauty of this is completely lost due to the foreground. All I can focus on is the lower half of the picture which is the rocks. I honestly think this might have been a better picture in Color because it just looks like too much grey and its washed out. If you crop the picture closer or maybe have taken a few steps closer it would have drasticlly changed the look of the picture.

I love fall colors!! This is really a great picture, you did an amazing job of getting the sun through the leaves and still not having the image be too dark. The only critique I would give is watch your horizon line. The whole thing tilts to the right just a little.

Here is my submission. (first time posting)

sumer Photo 1 : If the Eiffel tower was not inclined, it would have make it an even better picture. Just straighten it a bit.
Photo 2: The reflection is making the photo complete. I'd increase the brightness a bit.
Photo 3: That'd be my pick out of the 3 pictures. If it was me, I'd take out that lil boat from the frame. You were there at the perfect time. Golden light is always the best light.
Very nice photos overall.

From my last week's hike to Mt Evans:
Please see them in fullsize.
This was in the morning at 5:30 AM. And yes that is the moon in the right upper corner


This was at around 6:00 AM. Temperature of sunlight changes every few minutes.

Bserve The sharpness for it is incredible, especially for an iPhone 4!

Aqua Jon I'd recommend cropping them a bit to better place focus within your composition. Otherwise good job getting a pic of those shy critters!



One of my favorite pics oddly enough. I call it "the spicy plant destroyer". Its a horn worm, which will destroy any garden. Pretty up close though! And its shot with... an iPhone 4! ?! yes i dont believe it either

Wow, Great photo. I know how it feels to be running around with the camera trying to get the perfect shot.
I did that trying to get these shots.
A bit unfocused tho.
