Cheers guys, im glad you like
I'm not a photographer yet, these are my first tries, I've had my camera for about a month just happy snapping with mates and stuff, decided to try and get some photography style shots in.
Water isn't that dirty, its mainly the photoshopping that turned it dirty.
(On that note, you can see the difference, the wave breaking shot, and the one above it (with my mum in it, walking the dogs) was taken about 2 minutes apart. Same water, looks better in that shot.)
But it was taken after a storm, so there was a fair bit of dirt and wood and stuff in there, usually its super clean. And I am at the arse end of australia at the moment, not back in surfers paradise where the waters are picture perfect and the drinks do truly flow from the heavens.
The wide shots here are just big pictures, cropped short. I have an 8MP camera, so the shots are fairly decent in size. I can then just crop how I like.
When I want to make a panoramic style image, they are HUGE. which is great.
More to come, especially after I get my new memory card. At the moment I can only fit 5 or 6 high quality shots on my cam at a time, kind of limits the fun.
