Thanks...
Believe it or not it was taken from inside my VW Beetle (my g/f was driving) with my usual Sony Ericsson K750i 2MP cameraphone.

All I did is point & click, mother nature supplied the rest ;) (Primarily a sh*tload of snow)


Btw: I definitely want a wallpaper version (1024x768) of that night shot of yours!
Fantastic lighting & reflections!

Wow, that looks so good for a Cameraphone! Amazing. I would have figured you used at least a decent digital camera. Amazing.

Here ya go! The only thing that bugged me about this shot is that because of the low aperture the signs on the top are a little blurry... But I'm glad ya'll liked it.

Hey, that's near me! Nice picture. A lot of people complain about the wetness out here, but I find it absolutely gorgeous.

That is a photo from my visit to Brussels last spring time.
I had to lower the quality slightly to be able to upload it to ImageShack, but if anyone wants a full res copy, just let me know.

thanks!

just a basic consumer camera, 5 megapixel sony dsc-w5.

2 weeks before I got into photography [currently enrolled in Photography III at my school], my mom bought the camera. Now that Im passionate about photography, I really hate the lack of options the camera has. Its decent enough though.

Nice shots everyone, particularly the B&W city shot by sarahsboy and the snow shot by aptmunich.

Here is my "entry", been taking lots of bluebird shots recently this was March 3rd.

Nice. I dont want to impose because I dont know your background but one suggestion though: use the rule of thirds. Its a fundamental rule of photography which will make your photos much stronger. Again, I dont know your photography background and maybe you wanted it that way but just a suggestion.

I dont mind suggestions Playmode and dont take this the wrong way either, however to say that it is a fundamental rule of photography is quite a strong statement it is one that is considered to be a great tool for composing images though. You may want to read up on the rule of thirds or at least examine my photograph a bit better. There is a link here that explains the rule: Rule of thirds (http://www.silverlight.co.uk/tutorials/compose_expose/thirds.html)
and I have inserted lines for the thirds and circled the subject to help you out.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v236/kurtschneid/Just%20pics%20for%20webuse/_JPG9984thirds.jpg

Photographs that I show on the web are normally not a representation of the actual prints simply due to the size requirements at sites like this, the image presented here when printed out has a bit more to the bottom of the shot showing a few more inches of the trunk and is printed at 13x19. When I do crop for the web, I try to keep the original idea but for wildlife it seems best to make the actual subject of the image as large as possible without damaging the concept of the image I started with. This crop does follow the rule of thirds although it could have been cropped to follow that even more by removing more from above the bird, in doing that the image appears too cramped together for my taste and in the end photography is simply personal taste.

I was thinking more of the eye directly on the intersection. I guess the negative space to the left of the bird makes it seem shifted. Now I just feel foolish. :dummy:

No need to feel foolish, your opinion of the need to move the bird further out of center is an opinion you hold and everyone is entitled to one. I just wanted to ensure you understood the rule you were using, some times it seems people attempt to over exaggerate the rule placing nothing in 1/2 the image which works some times and others does not.

For bird shots like this, I have a friend that hates the bird is in the top third and feels birds should always be in the bottom part of images so they have room to fly up. I simply dont share his opinion on that :p

Cool - did you actually modify your iBook's apple logo, or is that 'shopped in?

I modified the logo inside the iBook! I am rubbish at making and doing things in Photoshop apart from Logos etc.
