I do not have any comments that would matter much since I am a beginner, but I thought your pictures were great!.
I actually was wondering how you were liking your camera. I am trying to decide between the Canon Rebel XTi (400D) or the Sony A100. Either way I would be starting out with the kit lens..
Your pictures looked great to me- just wondering though how you were liking the camera overall. Any pros or cons you would be willing to share?.
I am definitely needing some opinions on the Sony..
I'm a big Sony guy in general and after reading rave reviews for the A100 it was a no-brainer for me. I'm not sure how it compares to the Canon..
Otherwise, I'm loving it and it's very easy to use. You just need to read reviews, listen to what others have to say... and follow your heart. Either way, if you go A100, Canon or Nikon - you're getting a solid camera. And from a beginner's perspective, we're likely to not even really notice or appreciate the differences.http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesse757/sets/..
I really don't think I will notice a difference. The main think people have said is that you should look at the lenses you may want to purchase in the future... well I don't know yet what those might be!!.
I have pretty much narrowed it down to the canon or sony. My p&s is a sony and I love it for just every day things..
Thanks for your help!..
Composition seems nice and can't really find fault there. Well, I could quibble, but you were there and I don't know what your options were. Certainly a wide range of shots..
To my tastes ( which seem to be in a minority these days ) the colors in the landscape and the shops with the (very very) green trees are way over saturated. Tone it down a bit ? .
The landscape is suffering from mist but you could easily fix this with a little post processing. You need to adjust levels ( or curves ) on the misty area alone. In ye olden days people used filters for such things .
The ship and possibly the shop photos look overexposed. Experiment with metering modes and AE-L to get a sense of what works and when. Shooting RAW can help as you can (sometimes) recover highlights, but that's not really the issue..
Anyhow, generally rather nice..

Thanks for the input. I was on an over-saturation kick about two weeks ago, so that would explain the (very very) green plants outside of the store. And I had no clue about post-processing on the mist; it never occurred to me at all. Thanks, you've got me thinking!!.
P.S. I'm going to play around more this week with Metering and the AE-Lock (which I still don't know what is)... http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesse757/sets/..
Normally, you will not get good, constructive critique here. Compliments, and they are often equally enthusiastic for pictures ranging from mediocre to excellent.You need to show your pics to a less civil and more knowledgable group...
