Since there are so many of us that enjoy photography, why not have a thread about it?

A shot of the Hudson in upstate NY.


This was shot in Cleveland on a pier on the lake.

I love the shot of the bridge (with the farmhouse/barn in the background).

Me and a friend went on some trip last spring. We were bored one day in the evening, he was feeling down and he wanted to do something new.

Asked him if he wanted to climb some mountain.
Told me yes, the next day we ended up on a roadtrip for 2-3 hours and climbed 2 mountains on that day.
I hate myself for only bringing my stupid cellphone but still these are some nice pictures.




And yeah, that little feathery dude definitely thought my sandwich looked awesome.


Challenge it because it is unreachable.

MM, no offense. But my skills on the bike are already weak compared to you guys and you throw this out. Man, talking about making a guy feel small. I'll see if I can't find something on par with what's been posted to show.

This is with my point and shoot.  Nothing fancy but I was out back playing around some with it.

You've got some good shots kk! I love the Civil War shot... :thumbsup: .

I probably throw out about 50 or 60 shots for every 1 or 2 I actually like...I'm just glad it's all digital!  :o

Thanks, i appreciate that. That shot was take on a tour bus in DC. I have no idea who the people are but it just happened to work out. I'm not pro but I do like my photography. I probably need more time on the trainer. My photo skills don't have enough watts.  :lol:

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energyand pace of change.Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.

KK. The only way to be a good photographer is to shoot, shoot, and then shoot some more. Then review your pics and figure out why you like certain shots and not others

Then read some books on composition.( things like the rule of thirds)

Then learn about exposure.

This stuff is much easier with digital.  And as rando showed, pos does not mean pos. you can get some great shots with them

I snapped these ones when I was stalking KandK_Dad.  That guy came within a few miles of my home and didn't even say hi!  The nerve.
