I really like how the brightness in the front left goes back through the middle of the picture and the flowers on the outside are in the shade. It makes them stand out and the color seems brighter. I think it would be cool to see a close up of an individual flower on a macro setting.

I dont have a great camera, but I am able to get some nice pictures of most of my fish. I have trouble with the rummynose though. They move so fast and never stop so most of the pictures turn out blurry. This is probably the clearest one I have of them. Short of taking a video, how can I capture them more clearly?

Faster shutter speed and sharper focus. Basically...comes down to your lens. You need a fast lens with a BIG apperture to make things easier. Also, an off camera flash will help a lot.

Pretty nice. I'd personally like to see less water and more splash...

Here's an attempt I made a while back...

Good one! Red and blue are nice too. In order to be more attractive colors should be light and dark + a lot of Photoshop.

Look like you used a low f/stop, I think I would have preferred depth of focus, and a single or a couple flowers being a focal point. My eyes have a hard time locking on to one single flower. Otherwise, its a great shot and beautiful flowers!


Took this last night. 30 sec exposure, 18mm, f/3.5, ISO 2000 - D5100 - 18-55mm kit lens

Nice fish. Pretty good pic for a phone camera!

Took this photo in March of this year in Kauai.

Beautiful picture! I love how the edges of the picture are a little more unfocused than the center of the picture, so the birds head/face really stands out.

This is my betta Apollo. He doesn't look like this anymore, sadly. He decided to tear up his fins after months with no problems...Hes healing pretty quickly though

Love this thread! Good pic above. Maybe a little more DOF to focus more on Apollo.

Here is a pic I took of the 2010 Panoz Abruzzi at the 2011 12 hours of Sebring.

That's so cool how you made the stands but not the car blurry! How do you do that? If I tried that, then I would do the opposite!

This is a rather spur-of-the-moment shot that I took while waiting for a meteor shower (which I ended up falling asleep on, so I missed it).

So cute, love those expressions.

We had a squirrel mom using an old cushion from our doghouse to build a nest this year.
