I just got my first DSLR a few weeks ago, a canon T2i and picked up a canon 17-55mm f2.8 last night so I decided to try it out. All of these pictures were handheld because I didn't have time to get the tripod out, and only ambient lighting was used. I know the locations aren't ideal either, my town is pretty small and doesn't have many good locations for nighttime photography. Opinions, tips etc would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Last shot is a winner !

In the other shots the white balance is going everywhere, try to get them in sync and you'll have a series.

thanks for the tip, I was at different locations so I didn't even think about keeping the white balance the same for each picture, I just edited each one individually. That would create much better flow. I'll give that a try thanks!

edit: also on a side note, does anyone know how to edit the white balance in PSE9 on an edited version of a photo? the only way I know how to do it is when you initially open the original raw file and it comes up automatically. Thanks!

Love the last one...trying to place it, though...you're definitely in BC, but where? The first shot almost looks like Ogden Point in Vic...

Last one is your best IMHO. But the white balance is a bit off there too (the plate and the roof are green). Also, the crop is a bit loose maybe?

Also, next time bring a broom... Or do what I did and clone out the leaves and clean up the wall in PhotoShop.

You don't have "IMAGE EDITING OK" set in your profile, but I hope you don't mind me playing with your photo a bit...

thank you for the comments and tips guys.

lowrider s10: I'm from Abbotsford BC. I thought it was pretty impressive that you knew it was bc from the pics, but then realized you could see the plates! haha

int2str: thanks for the pointers on post processing, I really like what you did with the wall and the ground. These are the kinds of things I need to start being more aware of. I like the crop as well, but I'm using it as a desktop and after some more tries at editing it might get a print as well so I kind of like it a little wider when it is bigger.

Unfortunately the snow started today so it might be a little while before I get to try again but I will post when I do. I'm going to try to get some off road pictures with my Jeep over the winter so hopefully I can get some more practice with that.

Pontiac and Jeep? That's all I drive! I think I know where part of your username comes from. ;)

I look forward to more photos of your rides!

The username is slightly out of date, I recently bought a JK rubicon but had an xj before that. Unforunately the pontiac is my dad's, I just borrowed it for the night to take some pics and wear the tires down a little for him ;). I have the jeep and a twin turbo 300zx that I need to get some pics of as well, but it will be out of commission until the spring.That is where the zx part comes from. What kind of pontiac and jeep do you have?

I like the last one as well, but come on, there's always time to take out the tripod!

So after reading the feedback already given I decided to give the editing another try. Here is a pic I haven't posted yet, this is the raw file straight out of the camera:

and this is the edited version:

Opinions and tips would be much appreciated, I have a lot to learn. Thanks!
