    no a rank amateur, thanks for saying that though , i have been planning to take some prelim classes for some time now but have been putting it off for one reason or the other...i just love photography and have what i have been told a decent eye for it...plus my camera is also a really good one so that has significantly contributed to the quality of the pics...

    thanks, appreciate the compliments guys, i am showing you only my decent stuff though, the horrible ones far outnumber the good ones... , lang, as a professional photographer, any suggestions on good books on the subject? i am a beginner but am interested enough to spend a reasonable amount of time and money learning about the nuances...sudeep, i have seen a black and white rendition of almost the same yosemite valley pic by ansel adams which thrilled me to no small extent...

    I don't believe burying your head in a book can turn you into a better photographer, it might help some, but I always found the best plan was to get out there and take photos of anything and everything, expose yourself to people who know what they are talking about, and get an honest critique about your work. I'm not sure what kind of qualifications are available where you live, but perhaps get yourself on a part time Matric course at a local college to get a bit of hands on experience.. It will make you a more rounded photographer and will get you involved with people who talk about photography and can help you out..

    Another thing, don't get bogged down with the technicalities of your gear.. I can't stand people who can tell me the difference between the EOS400D and the EOS350D, but can't focus on a moving player.. (The difference is automatic sensor cleaning and a slightly bigger display by the way)

    ok thanks...i was thinking of books as an easy(comparatively) way out to learn some basics since taking a course might be out of the question for the next few months, my life is just too hectic...i have been getting out and taking pics whenever and wherever i can and will continue to do that...and i have not been bothered too much about the technicalities of my gear thus far, i concentrate more on symmetry, focus and clarity when i take my pictures but lately i have been feeling that i am not using the features available on my camera to an optimum, hence my question about the book(s)....you are right, i do need someone(or a group of people) to discuss this stuff with, let me put in some effort on that front...

    The internet is a good place to start, fire away on here and I'll try and deal with stuff you are unsure about

    That's some stunning photography!

    I got a pretty good camcorder for christmas. Unfortunately the one thing i can't take a picture of with it is itself, so i can't post what it is in this thread. The zoom's 37x max so it pretty much doubles as binoculars.

    Well I am going to post some more pics of Ha Long Bay (not all of them, just some of my favourites). I bought a 75-300mm lense when I was in Yodabashi Camera and since that purchase, I have not looked back.




    To some, this is a good photo, but in my mind, I think it is rubbish, when you will see some more of my work


    A lot better as I really made the sunset the centre of the photo, as it began to set




    One of my favourites, although you need a wider screen to probably appreciate it. I have got a photo of a Vietnamese woman who makes her living selling food and water to tourists kayaking along the Bay and other junk.


    One of my favourite photos

    The rest will be on the next post.

    My favourite one



    Thoughts? Any feedback will be appreciated.
