    I like the first one, yet I think there should be some focal point. There is nothing that really jumps out at the viewer, perhaps an object at the top of the stairs? A person facing away looking up in awe? As for the second picture, I like it as well, though a 5 second exposure with less of a trail on the lights would be nice as well. Sometimes too much of something takes away from the specialness of it, regardless, keep up the good work. PM me when you put more up.

    how would i go about creating a focal point, decrease the aperture or try a differnt focusing mode? because i am a complete camera n00b, these two pictures are the first i have ever taken that haven't just been a case of "point and shoot"

    any help on setting my camera up would be apprecaited!

    a focal point: he meant, you should find something to focus onto, something that really draws the eye, for instance, when i look at the firt picture my eye automaticly go tward the stairs / railings. that is kind of a focal point, but instead of just taking a picture of a building, though it came out nice, he just meant maybe try to find something that really stands out to you, something that catches your eye.

    Call me dumb,

    But what is a Macro?

    I'm interested in digital photography but have not covered it much, I Have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P73 4.1 Mega Pixel Camera which has all these different fancy settings and so on but I have not got a clue how to use them really lol.

    If anyone could give me a quick 101 in digital photography that would be awesome! As I would really like to take an artistic photograph of the Humber Bridge (Hull, UK) as every time I pass it I think its an amazing piece of engineering!

    Regards,

    Chris. :mac:

    i like that third picture, the idea is good, better lighting and it would look much nicer..

    best way to learn, is to practice, you only get better when you try, if something isn't working like you think it should, do some research, here is a doc that might help some get the general ideas about photography, http://web.telia.com/~u54105795/intr...otography.html

    but i'd also recommend going to dp review, they give you good information if you are just starting out, read reviews and read the glossary, it should help you understand things a bit better. http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/glossary/

    Lenses with this feature can focus very close (less than 8") for taking pictures of small objects at a 1:1 ratio.

    ^Macro (wikipedia.com)

    I have this same camera, and I absolutely love it.

    Took this one with very little light.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
