While on walks the past few days I took my camera with me and took some pics.

I'm looking for constructive feedback.

Camera used was an Olympus SZ-12

You are taking pictures for the sake of taking pictures, and that is something I can't/won't criticize...
Once you're taking pictures from a place of concept or something similar check back in ;)

Usually, if you want a critique, you'll get a better one if you only post 1 or 2 images.

And sorry, but in the "Share" areas IMAGE POSTING RULES specifically state: "Do not use the forum as your image gallery, post only the best of the best and link to the rest."
This means we allow 2 attachments by the OP per thread, OR 8 embedded (linked) images, OR a combination of 2 attachments + 6 embedded (linked) images, totaling 8 per thread. (Maximum 1024 pixels on any side.) You can always just post a link to more, though, or better yet, post a link to a gallery so we don't have to click on each image link.
Some exceptions are group threads, like "Show Me...", "Post your best...", equipment reviews, Tutorials, etc.
You may add a few additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post and request.

You can edit posts 2 & 3 by removing the [IMG] tags if you want to fix the links.

I posted some pictures here because I'm new starting out in photography and I'm trying to gain some tips or suggestions on how to take better photos.

Also I don't see why there needs to be a rule to only allow 8 pics per thread. I'm not hosting these pics on your board rather they are hosted on imageshack and I'm just linking them.

Okay, let me read all of the reply posts here so I can try and become a better photographer........ *reads posts*......... oh thank you so much for your feedback. With the knowledge that I gained from your valuable feedback I now know that I will be able to take better pictures in the future! Thanks again!

I'll give you critque - these are all snapshots of what could be some interesting subjects. Think of what you want to show in your photograph (there is a difference to a snapshot and a photograph) and make that the subject.

As an aside no one is going to take the time to go through and critique that many photos regardless of who is hosting them, but the people that run the board have their rules, being sarcastic about them isn't going to help you. Pick 1 or 2 of your best, you'll get a much more helpful response.

Curious why you came to a Canon forum for critique on snapshots from a basic olympus P&S?

I own a Canon T2i that I purchased specifically for getting into photography, but since I was just taking a walk in my neighborhood I didn't want to bring that one.

In fact one day when I did do that someone actually came out of their house and confronted me about taking pics of their trees.

So to be less noticeable I used my Olympus.

And it would only make sense that someone who is new into this would post a bunch of "snapshots" obviously I'm not an expert right?

What I'm tired of is when I TRY and get into something new. It seems like everyone just bashes me.

Take the T2i, your not going to get better with your T2i by using your Olympus.

The shots are not edited, or coherent. So if your not putting in the work, neither are we.

No one is bashing you, thicken your skin a bit and prove us wrong, sheesh. Everyone is so sensitive in this section.

Yeah, these pictures are about as random as it gets (3 and 4 look to be the same shot). Cull them down to your best 2-3 and you will get better responses.

To assist in avoiding the "snapshot" look, try changing your perspective. Take the shots from a position or angle that is different that what others would see if they were just walking around. As others have said, don't take some remarks as bashing, but information to speed your learning curve. Take a few more and post again. Do you have any post processing software you will be working with or just the camera supplied software? Will help us in knowing what you have available to you so we can be productive.
Welcome to the board. Lots and lots of knowledge available here.

Your neighborhood seems rich with photographic opportunities; but all your pictures lack any context. You should find a scene and find a place to hang out and wait for some people to get into the scene to give it some personal interest then shoot. I'd start with the eagle. It would be great if there were a person in that shot walking under the eagle or by its talons. Where is your neighborhood?

Lol, no your right, most people are good about it. I get that everyone wants to be helpful and encouraging, but sometimes you just can't sugar coat it. I think if everyone was more brutal in this section, people would learn quicker.
