    Wonderful creations indeed there. Please keep it up. I was musing that ‘technology lens’ can enhance a bit more of the beuty and presentation
    of the ‘God – sent things’. Proof is this. Thanks for the presentation and dissemination.

    Ok yousif am sorry! but here we go!…
    The 1st: is shaky!
    The 2nd: way lacks contrast!
    The 3rd: its over exposed!

    I’m sorry if i was harsh but compliments doesnt makes u a better photographer! critique does! ;>

    My reccomendations for the:
    1st: i have the same problem! try to hold ur breath while shooting! if it doesnt work stay away from shaded areas! ;p
    2nd: am not a Canon girl am a Nikon, but i always give my contrast settings a notch up! (in my camera settings not PS)
    3rd: read from ur center object! if u r shooting close ups or using a macro maybe u want to change ur light metering to spot or center.

    oo bs! ;>

    Mohammad Abdullah Thanks 🙂

    EeLAaA Thanks for the great comment, I appreciate it. I agree with the shaky and overexposed. The first pic was in a shady area where I had to slow the shutter.. a slower shutter and the wind did not hel at all. and the last pic was in a very bright area… yeah.. beginner’s mistakes 🙂

    But what about the 2nd one’s contrast? I don’t get it. I thought the picture looked perfect.. ?

    loco Thanks 🙂

    About the second one, hmmm we say its a bit washed away! or in B&W muddy! i.e lacks contrast.
    what i am trying to say is that u try to bring out the brown in the trunk or the green in the leaves (if the palms green things r called leaves! ;p) ya3ni more live colors just to ad more life to the pic ;>

  9. Wonderful!! Great shots keep them coming!

  10. Maybe you could try using a tripod.. I know tripods are fidly, you need time to put it on, then up down, the height, I HATE that part lol but gives u a good shot.. never tried a macro lense, though i ordered one
