Okay, So Iíve been trying to get better at taking pictures, and this is what I came out with. If you have any advice, or see something I could improve, Please, Tell me!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/spi...es/curtains.jpg
I hate to ruin it, but these really are just my curtains, and for some strange reason, my camera decided that this picture should be tinted blue. I got lucky, I guess.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/spi...s/darkboots.jpg
My family seemed to find it a bit strange when they saw me running around the house, grabbed one boot from each pair and ran for my room. I wonder why.

This was during the highschool football game. Donít worry, Iím not getting school spirt or anything, my friend was playing in the band, and you can get some awesome pictures from up there.

At the football game again. My dad found it strange that I spent all of my time taking pictures,and not cheering for a bunch of Sweaty guys who were throwing around a ball.

I know I should be modest and all, but I am Really proud of this one. It was really just a lucky moment; my mom lit a candle that was sitting on top of a doodle I had drawn that morning.

Okay, that's it for now. Enjoy! (I hope) smile.gif

I really like these, especially the curtains and the candles. From what I understand, a good bit of photography is seeing the right thing at the right time, so good for you. The skies look great, and I think you got some really good colors from up there. Having the stadium light at the edge of one picture seemed really interesting, but I can't figure out why. I didn't like the boots as much, but that's probably just my sneaker-centric feet talking. They seemed a bit blurry at the edges for some reason. Anyway, nice pictures! Post more when you take more. smile.gif

Hmm.... They are blurrry, aren't they? Strange- they didn't show up like that when I was editing them. I wonder why?

Photoshop automatically resizes sometimes, maybe that made them blurry?

About the stadium sky pic, I like it and all, but it seems like you got the edge of the picture caught in the stadium and you werent really trying to get it in the picture. I suggest doing a half/half thing, or get an angle so its the full stadium with the sky showing behind it....

This is just my opinion though. Same goes for the sunset football one too, from the title I gather you wanted to show the sunsetting over the football field, and all I can see is outlines of it and the school (school, yes?) I'd either focus half and half again, and acctually be able to see the field and such, or just do the sky....

The other one's are very very nice though ^^ I really like the boots and the candle for some reason. It just really appeals to me

The picture was just named that because the title "sunset" and all of the other simple names I could think of were taken by other pictures. I usally just name the pictures because it makes it a bit easier on me whenever I'm looking for a specific one.

Below the stadium is just a tangle of roads and a pasture or two that never seem to have any cows in them. Not to metion, that bottom part of the picture didn't turn out in the first place so I figured I'd just use it as a type of contrast. smile.gif

I like the stadium one the most too. I think the composition is pleasing: the lights give one very direct vertical line, which counterposes the swooping shaps of the paths and the diagonals in the bushes and trees behind the stadium. Nice.

Wow. I especially like the boot one. I'm not sure why, just the way the boots are sat and the primary colours. The other are great aswell.smile.gif

Thanks for all of the opinions, guys! I'm still not sure what I should do to improve though, because after someone makes a suggestion to improve a picture, another will come and say that it's perfect how it is. tongue.gif

I enjoyed editing this one. It was taken at the same time as the boots, but it took me longer to decide on what colors they were going to be.

This is a mask that I made in art class last year. I'm not gonna point out what I think is wrong with it, I'd rather that you just don't notice, instead of looking for a mistake.

Wow your pictures are really good. I love the sunset ones but I'm a big sucker for pictures of the sky. I like the shoe ones as well, I don't know why but they look really good.

Wow, those are really great.

The stadium one is epic, and I'm strangely drawn to the red leaf and the birdhouse pictures.

I like being able to see the veins running through the leaves because I'm addicted to little details like that. The birdhouse one is my favorite of the last three, though. It's interesting seeing the sky going through the little door with the dying plants all around. Seems like a cool expression of fall. I wasn't really excited about the cow skull, though. It's okay, but not so much fun to stare gaze at for extended periods of time.

Just thought it'd be cool to tell you I keep seeing your picture of the stadium in my head whenever I think of the football feild or something of the sort. Something about it makes me think of a tie between the modern world and nature, because the grass is so green and healthy looking, and then theres the lights which is a modern invention, just living there happily....
I keep seeing it, it haunts me!

Okay, here's a new one:

I'm not quite sure why, But I'm kinda proud of this one too.

I like that last one! It seems so sad, though.

I also really like the birdhouse pic. I love the colors of the sky in contrast to the dark birdhouse.

I feel kinda bad for bumping this thread after so long just for two pictures, but I'd really like some opinions on these:

I like them! The second one, for some reason, strikes me as extremely Southern. I mean, I know you live in Texas, but that's not why. It must be the grass or something.

Same here, but I think it is that bleached/ whitewashed white with the green slightly browning grass. But what do I know?! I live in England.

We've gotten such a small amount of rain here that all of the grass in brown. tongue.gif

These pictures are pretty old, but I don't think that I ever got around to posting them. They are from my trip to New Mexico with my dad. The lamp is in Roswell, and I thought that it was a pretty nifty idea.

I really like these. I think it's because you get so close up and crop out things that it takes something and makes it a bit abstract. The grass coming around the edges of the converse just has a simple beauty to it. I think these are the most impresesive out of the ones you have.

smile.gif Thanks for the comments, guys!

My parents and I went to the Palo Duro Canyon Sunday afternoon, and I got a few pictures:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/spi...es/longhorn.jpg
My dad wanted me to get a picture of the longhorn cattle that live inside the park for some reason.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/spi.../canyonsign.jpg
I thought this sign was kinda... odd.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v605/spi...s/lookingup.jpg
My personal favorite out of all of the pictures that I took.
