    Default Official Photography Thread

    I'm hoping this thread can be a place we can submit photos regardless of our talent, or in my case lack thereof, we have personally taken. I would appreciate any constructive (hopefully not too brutal) feedback.

    The first ones I will submit were taken while in Jamaica. I have a Nikon D300, I don't recall what lens I was using. I don't want this thread to be just my pictures so I will wait to submit more until others have a chance to add some.


    This was taken standing on the balcony of our hotel room



    It rained for an hour or two everyday. I felt like this could have been a great photo, but I didn't frame it as well as I would have liked.


    Local beach performers very entertaining and surprising harmonic

    I didn't take this picture( my friend did) but I was there 2 weeks ago on a backpacking trip.

    Oneof the most beautiful lakes I have ever been to.

    That is Mt Whitney in the far background. The really big mountian.

    I love outdoor photography. If this thread ever takes off I will put some I took while on my 50 mile hike this summer. That is a good photograph. It would have been cool if he could have gotten a little closer to the lack to catch those ripples on the water better. Beautiful shot though.

    I was using a Olympus DSLR with a 40-150mm zoom. I also have some of the Normandy Beaches if anyone is intrested.

    I was being sarcastic, sorry. Are the pictures showing up on your computer. All I can see is the titles, there are no images showing.

    No problem, yes they are.

    I loaded them to my photo album on the CUF server. I'll check and see if they are there when I get home from work.

    I can see them now. I really like the top picture-good lighting and flag showing through the opening in the branches makes a nice shot.

    BTW I don't want to act like I know anything about photography, I'm a mediocre amateur at best. If there is a real photog on here who can comment on the photos, I know I would love to hear your feedback.

    I think that is my favorite of the whole trip. I've used for my background at work. I submitted to my work's photography contest. Didn't win though

    I've added them to a photobucket album, I'll change the URLs

    Think Mr. Finderson can fill that role.

    I am on the same level as you are on the photography scale. I think I've taken some nice shots, but mostly it is by accident.
