    What kind of camera are you using?


    This picture is my favorite out of the bunch.. I'd crop it down and get rid of most of the excess dark ground area and focus more on the horse shadowed by the shine of the sun.

    Thanks! That pic I actually took with my phone! A couple are phone pics lol The camera I use is an Olympus Stylus 850 SW (shock proof and water proof!)

    If your really serious about getting into photography you should look into a DSLR camera. A basic entry level one and work your way up to higher end DSLR. Like a Canon Rebel XT or something along those lines.

    A point and shoot camera won't offer you as much options.

    thats great! And if you get it I recommend some online courses from Learn to Take Photos Online - Digital Photography Courses it can help you understand the functions of your camera and help you with basic and more advance techniques :)

    They aren't terrible, but if you want to hear an unsoftened opinon, here goes:

    They aren't interesting. I scan by them in two secs. There is nothing that makes me want to look at them longer than that. Nothing remarkable in either the composition, the subject matter, the lighting and color . YOu often shoot into the light, which is very hard to do and make it work (too much dark foreground and silhoette.
    Your tiliteing of the picture with the fence lines only serves to make it feel forced and uncomfortable, since we appreciate the stability of horizontal lines . The close ups of the nose are not appealing, nor artistic. They may be funny, true, but anyone can take that shot.
    The first photo is the nicest, as it does capture a bit of the "far away" feeling that a horse looking in the distance can have. Were there better lighting, or more interesting framing (composition), it would be better.

    Think of you photograpsh as paintings, at least the ones that are not of action. Foreground, middle ground, background. A composition that helps the veiwer's eye mover THROUGH the painting/photo.

    Take more, post only the best.;l


    Does that make you feel better?
