These are simply marvelous!

Only problem I see is with the Beauty picture. It kinda looks way under-exposed as compared to the vibrance it could bring.

Something similar with the Peaceful Park picture. It does look a little under-exposed and lacking a little bit of contrast in ordinance with the Tree and the grass at the bottom of the picture.

Thanks for the comment.

The 'beauty' picture was one that I meant to take down. I feel that I could have done a lot better with it.

The only picture I don't absolutely adore is the Night Life one. I don't particularly care for the lighting, and it looks a little rough. I'm no photography expert, though.

All the rest of the pictures are beautiful though. I really like Arial Ace and Homeless But Relaxed. Arial Ace because... well I'm not sure. And I don't even like birds that much, haha. And Homeless But Relaxed because so many photographers capture homelessness in a very sad, depressing way, but you took a different approach. And I think it turned out lovely (:

Great work! I love the Path Way one ... and how'd you get a picture of a homeless guy? XD You're pictures really captured my attention.

I do find the Sky of Tranquility to be kind of boring though -just stating my opinion not trying to be mean. I'm a photographer also and I have seen a lot of pictures of trees just like that, facing up at the sky and they just all seem so bland to me It's really hard to get a sky shot that really gets your attention :\

Great job! Keep it up! :D

Sorry for the double post. But added another picture called 'Smoking Kills'.

Sorry I haven't been posting much, University has killed my time to be a photographer =[

No you can't...

XD

Of course. It is just a standard 14mm - 42mm. It is all about how to use the camera, rather than what you have. Obviously, it is important to have the right equipment, but you still need to know how to use it.

Loving all this photography, Will. :] You've got such a great sense of angle and you've taken great pictures, and with a pretty good camera too. Keep it up!

HO GEEZ. I had no idea you were a photographer (or ever knew that this thread existed.. I should pay more attention).

I have to say that I like One Way Traffic the best. Pretty extraordinary cityscape photo; it's almost like something you would see in a brochure about a location and it's nightlife. One of my dreams is to go on a helicopter ride and fly over Las Vegas to snap as many of these kinds of photos as possible. I know Las Vegas may be overdone, but at least I get to experience it myself. O:
I know this might be hard for you to answer, but would you happen to know the shutter speed of the photo and how fast the cars were traveling? I was walking to school tonight, and I attempted that effect on the car headlights but I wasn't sure about the right settings.
And yes, the Smoking Kills photo is a great one too. I have to say that the borders are a little distracting though.
Awesome stuff though. You should most definitely keep posting! D:

Well, from what I remember, the shutter speed was in the minus; I think it is 10/1. So in other words, the shutter was open for 10 seconds.
If you want to attempt these type of pictures, you HAVE to have a tripod, because even if you slightly move or nudge the camera, it ill blur the whole thing.
As for the cards, they weren't going that fast. I doesn't matter too much of the speed as such, as long as they don't stop in the line of site, you re fine.

Since no one has posted in a while, I might as well bump this up.
Make sure you head over to my sticky on this board called 'The Way Of The Photographer' for any hints, tips and information about photography.

I'll just post what I told you earlier here: the only thing that I would say about the composition is that her chin is making a tangent with the bottom of the frame.. :3 Other than that, it is lovely! You heard what I said about the light in the back.. but yeah just be more conscious of your framing next time. You can always crop in but you can't always expand out .O.! <3

Thank you Kura. I would have liked to have thought I would have solved those problems if I was sober! XD

UPDATED NEW PICTURE!

Really love the new one Fabio! The only thing that bugs me is I can't really clearly tell what you wanted the focal to be, I'm guessing it's the drops suspended in the air, but none the less, an enjoyable photo. Kudos. I really should go do some now the weather is nice again. I've been slacking.

Love your latest one; the water is so crisp. Stop-motion action is so fun. I practiced it with my sister juggling Pokeballs. xD My only crit is that the entire image appears to be a little tilted. The shapes and lines emphasize that more than the glass cup does. But that's real easy to fix in Photoshop. Other than that, great capture.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
It was hard to get a good focal point when some of the drops were ahead of others. I just set the manual focus on it before I dropped the water, then just went from there! XD
