Well.... Improvement... first two, real obvious mistake... you have an Uno in the pictures. (And a foot) :moon: :D

Great colours tho. :D

Second one rocks.
Third one, bit of foreground/background balance would be cool, I always try and get things to be a little more level... and maybe it could have been taken a little bit further to the left. :)

Totally jealous of your travels tho. :)

What camera you using?

was using an eos 350d, third one was balanced on the floor using a timer so is why its a tad wonky! The foot was a mistake couldnt see it on the screen at the time sadly! How would you go about getting forground/ background balance?

imagine these lines in your viewfinder its a rule of thirds

never have your subject slap bang in the middle try and have your main point of view where the lines cross or on one of the vertical lines, for landscape shots choose either the top horizontal line or the bottom one for whatever you are trying to show to get the most impact ...does that make sense ? LOL

Erm, possibly a little fill flash would have done it, Its all trial and error until you get used to things. otherwise you can be a bodger like me and knock something up when you get back... just a little rough.


Other photos are quality. Especially loving, chilled out chair type dude. What the hell made that lovely hole in your wing?!?! :eek:

Was me!!! Suspension broke in Kazakstan and could only find Lada 4x4 springs and another car to compress it under! So kind of had to rip part of the wing off to fit the new spring back under, then bolt it up to mount and cut the string that was holding the spring compressed! Worst thing was that they were far too big (ended up replacing both front springs) and this happened to the rear suspension and the car became pimped at the front and stupidly low at the back! Cheers for your help, never seen that grid thingy before!
