The one with the windmill is kind of cool because at first I thought the lower part of the windmill was a reflection on the water like the tree. But then I realized my eyes were deceiving me.

Those pictures look starkly like a Nebraska landscape, where are you from? That bridge picture looks like a place out in the Nebraska sandhills, and the picture with the baby and the dog looks like the landscape around my grand-uncle's pasture land. And of course there's windmills everywhere around here.

Ok I will explain where they are and what they are if that helps you critique more guys...

One
This is of my son and his dog at our old farm property in Highlands Victoria

Two
Is of our new farm 40 acres of grass and a small cottage the dam is the main water source for the whole property including the house, the windmill no longer works but gives a great effect.

Three
Is a local bridge condemned but was a main bridge back in its day to get to Hildene, the river running under it is the Goulburn Valley.

All taken in Australia Sorry kc0tma :)

I love the second photo. What sort of equipment were you using here?

These were all done on my "older" cameras

The first being a cannon EOS 10QD film camera

The second being a panasonic 6mp point and shoot

The third being a pentax MZ-50 film...

I now have my new Canon EOS 350d but haven't had much of a chance to use it except in the garden (plus and waiting for my new filters to arrive) I am infatuated with filters and b&w as well as sepia. I do like color photos but prefer them in a more older style tone (history freak)

Well, credit to you. I like the effects you have here from the filters and just seeing these photos alone has inspired me to invest more in filters when i've got the money.

SB don't invest too much I went on Ebay found a seller that sells 28piece filters kits very cheap.... Hold on whilst I get the name of the user for you.

Cost me $100 for 55mm 28 piece filter kit.

Hope that helps you save some money...

I need to spend another $100 to get 77mm filters for my 200-400mm lens

First one is a cute snapshot.

The second...well...it drives me nuts when a horizon slopes for no good reason. I'd say it's a error of composition.

The third is my favorite. Good basic composition.

All of these, however, seem to be cropped and that is something I personally don't like. I want to see the composition that occured when the image was created. For me, that's where the photographer shows he/she has the "eye", or doesn't.

1. Interesting placement of the models, probably would have been better to centre them a little bit more because they are both as interesting as each other, the expression on the child as well as the JR looking to the side. Love the colouring of the photo. I wonder what filter would achieve the same kind of look on a newer camera.

2. good pic but first thing i notice is the angle looking wrong even though it appears to be naturally sloping land I would have probably left the image wider instead of cropping it to show the slope.

3. Also love the colour on this one. Looks very old fashioned and I also love that look too.


I'm waiting for my Nikon D80 to arrive so I can get out and take some photos too. Will have to investigate some interesting filters also :)
