I went to the City today and took various pics of various things I came across. It was all pretty random, so I hope you like them.

It's me again :P

Gee if it were any other day we would of synced up in to same spots, crazy.

Take in to consideration what I said in the last post but what I noticed with these, is that they are clearly straight out of the camera so there color is really flat. I recommend you use either Photoshop or Lightroom to tweak with your colors a little bit. Just simple things like increasing contrast of Shadows, Midtones and Highlights for RGB and all the single colors.

Here are some examples of mine:

I myself have only been shooting for 2 months so I too have a lot to learn.

I recommend too that you get a Flickr, Imgur or 500px page to post these. Means you can post full res with out the hassle of embedding each, then we can just click a link.

Got 2 questions though. 1. Camera you use? 2. Manual or Auto Mode?

Anyway if you need any help with this stuff let me know and I would be more than happy to lend a hand. And if you want me to just shut up let me know that too.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I have a couple of confessions to make though. I'm not as excited about photography as you are, but I still do appreciate your comments and will still take pics here and there. Also, I took all of todays pics on my iphone5 lol. So i'm already handicapped anyways lol. I can see you're quite gifted with it and you have the drive for it. I can't say that I have that same passion. I just like taking half decent pics and don't have the motivation to photoshop etc.

Fair enough dude. You are doing good at what you are setting out to do and that is what counts.

Will confess though, did do a little edit of my 2 faves of yours.

You can see how drastically different and vibrant it is to the original and tells more 'story'.

Food for thought.
