Larkspur, that is a great shot of your cat. Because of that, I have to share my main fuzzy man....Elvis.
Gorgeous cat Fred!

Great shot Fred.

He looks like he's wondering about you.

larkspur Nice shot, I like it how the eyes are clear and sharp with the soft smooth background of the cats fur.

turbo-1 I like that shot more actually, the wood grain works so nicely. I'm having trouble with my focus, I can change it an make it work but only short range. The focus in your shot is great, but how did you manage it?

Is this picture done with a really high f-stop? I love how her fur just seems to fade into the background. Even your most basic pictures amaze me.

Thanks. I often think if Elvis wonders about me and just what the heck I am doing. He is one photogenic cat (I think).

The photos I dare to share with the rest of the world are stored here. C&C, advice, tips, etc. are most welcome...I have a LOT to learn.

Yeah, sure! In the short time you've had that camera, you've posted some great pictures. I love the silhouetted crows.

You have some very nice shots in your group Nutrino.

If you really want to learn how to improve I would suggest joining the Flickr group Photowalkthrough. Then post a photo in the discussion section with the title RIA. ( Rip It Apart.) They will be brutally honest but that helps you learn faster when someone points out the flaws and tells you how to improve.


Another group that will be brutally honest is Photosig.com. If you can take the constructive criticism you will improve rapidly.
Just reading the criticisms of other peoples work will help you.

I am not a very good critic because I am too positive and I hate to hurt someones feelings with critical remarks (even if I can sugar coat it).....these groups don't care about feelings. They just want to get quality work from you.

Larkspur I might have a look at that group, thanks for the link.

Mech_Engineer Great shot, the focus is pefect.

I have a few I've taken recently both have a few minor issues.

I don't think the focus is quite right, and I think the photo is a bit too rich in colour and contrast, but I am happy with what is in the shot

Thank you for the kind words, guys. And thank you, larkspur, for the links. I belong to one photography forum, where I post occasionally (under the name of 'underexposed').

The problem(s) I have with photography, apart from actually composing, exposing and capturing an eye-pleasing scene, is that I'm very impatient when it comes to post-processing.(At least make the bad ones look decent, even if you can't create a good one in the first place. ) I'm not really sure what I'm doing when I'm moving the levels slider or adjusting curves, and I also have this nasty habit of preventing the photo becoming even a tad unrealistic.

I have a couple of photos that I was "working on," which haven't yet been posted to Flickr. I'll post the shots in the groups you mentioned over the weekend.

Hey, Nav! Here's a shot you won't see at home. I was working at my computer when I saw a big dark shape outside my window, I grabbed the body with the 100-400mm on it and took a few shots through the window. There were 4 turkeys and since the snow in front of the house is over four feet deep, they were nearly at eye level.

Wow! I would have been excited to get that shot too!
