    Nice to see you getting out there with the camera mate. You've done pretty well with the exposure there, nice to see you trying different compositions. No1 is probably the best composition.

    Hope you're not shooting on auto... That would be a waste of a DSLR

    What Neo said. Getting out there is the first step whether it be cold or warm, shite skies or blue

    Compositionally, #1 does have more to offer the eye and the sky is nice (with a bit of burn in it would be very cool)

    There are some other interesting compositions in the tower but you've got some nice sharp images so good stuff. Keep on doing it

    Your shots are getting better Leo Do you know about the rule of thirds? I'd never heard of it (thought those grid lines on my cam where for getting things straight!) until someone pointed it out on here. I recon that would have helped with these pics because the tower always seems to be centre of the pic? Still cool though!

    Get a book called Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson and read it a few times. That should set you on the way to getting a little more creative with your exposure. Looking good by the way and the first one was on landscape mode but I won't tell...

    looking good mate, as everyone says its about getting out and about.......... silly things turn out as great shots and what you think is good doesmnt its part of the fun of it

    try 7dayshop.com for cheap filters........ Id get a ND8 (neutrel density) which will allow long exposures (good with rivers/waterfall etc) and just have a general look at what else they have filter wise

    well done and keep at it

    Beware of cheap filters as they won't help with vignetting, chromatic aberration and lens flare. Have a read up of reviews of filters you are thinking of buying before pressing the buy button. Only use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or Hoya Pro Digital myself.

    On the first one, I would have moved slightly around to the right so that the fence ran from the bottom left corner of the photo. But apart from that, I like it.
