Need to just get out and take more photos too, I tend to do not much unless I go somewhere on holiday.
It's always disappointing to take heaps and then look at them later and realise you wasted your time.
Should have some more photos up tonight.
I just peered over a bank at the Ecology Park on Monday - kestrel was just sat there in the beck (was only an inch deep) with a wet tail letting me take photos. Weird how stuff like that happens. Even decided to fly up onto a branch for a few more pictures (facing the wrong way though, back is boring compared to the stripey front). Is now my new MSN avatar - until I *finally* get a proper a shot of an adult kingfisher (friggin branches were in the way last time).
Will have to stop being bone idle and upload some stuff to my website. Also could do with getting one of those microfibre cloths I think. Doing coverage for a big Scrabble tourney next weekend, hopefully England will have regained the Ashes by then as there'll be a few jocks floating around...

Thrilling shot of a construction site
The top one is the best imo.
Yeah I think the top one is best too.
The light isn't good in a lot of the others and it's hard to take shots from a car. I think it was a bit late in the day for some of the other pics, if everything's in the shadows/there's no sun then the shots look a bit flat. Probably better off waiting for the sun to go down in the city once it gets to this stage and getting some lights etc.
The beach shot is an example of this, it needs some sunlight to give the shot something more in my opinion. Early morning or late afternoon is usually the best. With the sun going down over the hills on the coast you'd have to get there quite a bit before sunset I think. All the high-rises block out the sun.
As for the forest, I think a tripod is needed a lot of the time to get the shots bright enough with all the shadows you have to deal with.
Good to see you taking a lot of shots though Craig, and it's good to have somewhere to post photos people can comment on here.
If you want some more feedback from people who spend a lot of time photographing things (some of them are professionals) head over to the canon digital forums (or any other photography forum you can find) and post some stuff over there too.
