Hi all,
Took this the other day and just wanted some C&C as i've only had my 450D for about a month.

Cheers Dave

What lens is that? The top left corner is black, is that from a lens hood maybe?

You already got somewhat low to take this picture, which is good, but the horizon is still right through the center of the picture. This combined with the pretty dull grass in the whole bottom half makes the image fairly boring. I would try laying down for this shot and getting more sky for a more dramatic effect.

laying down, a little closer, with a nice wide lens would make that pic jump out.

OP: you take this pic at 18mm/using the kit lens?

i like the scene. it has potential :D


i have a camera. it takes nice pictures.

The lens was the 18-55mm IS kit lens F20, ISO 100, 1/2 sec, i only have that and the 55-250mm IS.

The black in the corner is actually part of a building that is just to the left out of shot (well i thought it was) i don't have a hood yet still just the basic twin lens kit.

Damn i thought i had the rule of thirds happening pretty well didn't even think about horizontally.

Thanks for the C&C i might try this one again next time i'm out that way :)

Interesting image, but I think it's too flat and needs more contrast.
