    Default New Canon 450D. Testing it out with some shots around Newcastle

    Just bought a Canon 450D, still getting to grips on how to use the thing as i have never had a caera like this before, i've always had point and click cameras.

    Took a few hours out today to get some shots, went to the Angel of the North, then into town. Headed off to Tynemouth after that, then went down royal quays then the fish quay in North Shields. I've picked some of the decent shots i took, the rest look crap really.

    Any tips from you guys would be really appreciated

    All seem sharp, so well done with that. The composition is a little lacking in all of them, but not bad at all for an SLR beginner. The angel shots are all so-so with the widest angle being the best of them. I like what you've tried to do with the sillouette's of the harbour. The last of the 3 would have been a cracker if you'd got closer to the crane thingy and made it the feature. All 3 of them need the horizon straightening a little but they are endearing in a way, I like them more each time I look at them

    You're welcome to join Bod and I on our frequent expeditions around Northumberland and Wearside if you want (and if you can handle bad humour and foul language all the way)

    LOL, I thought your language was quite moderate really Neo

    I DO like those sunset shots. They're different from the average sunset shot and a good go at it for an SLR beginner. Good stuff I like the first shot as well. Looks like people have convened on the banks to look at the apocalypse or something

    Welcome to the world of DSLR. Looking forward to more of your images.

    No worries mate... We'll give you a shout next time we arrange to head out. In fact, there is a small chance we may go somewhere tomorrow after the match... More than likely not (since I may have a couple of beers).
