Cheers

there is too much noise in the pictures. you are using very high iso and aperture is very
wide .For landscape we use iso 100, f11 to f16, shooting raw,bracketing the shots.
and it is possible only if you use tripod.

Would like the last forest photo if it were cropped to the left, ridding yourself of the leaves on the right side. What were the settings? That is always useful to see.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Your camera settings seem reasonable f4.0, 1/200, ISO 1600. I suspect any noise problem is the result of the camera at that ISO. You are getting a bit high I think. That coupled with the images still being under exposed a bit would indicate it was a dark woods/day.

I like the two forest shots but they do have issues. #2 is shot at f1.8? That got your ISO down but at the cost of DOF. The whole image looks off focus wise. I like the composition and light though.

#4 is quite nicely composed too. ISO 1600 and f3.5 for landscape is just not working though.

Squirrels are cute.

Thanks a lot guys, the last shot was with the 18-55 kit lens so not too great (yet to get a 17-40!) the squirrels were with my 70-200 f4 which is why my ISO was quite high as it was very dark but i can certainly see what you mean by the noise. The 2nd photo was with my 50 1.8 when i walked to the shops so was a quick shot! Thanks for the criticism will take into account the settings when I can next get shots like these.

Cheers Guys
