    DISCLAIMER... i am by no means a professional, just like to shoot stuff in my spare time... this was my first time out with the new camera..

    only a few.. most of them i have to resize so i can host them... i was shooting in raw format, and i forgot to resize them.. and each pic is like 8MBs each... lol oh well the B/W ones, are smaller so here they are...

    camera is a rebel xti.

    Great shots!!

    Tho, your borders are crooked :rofl:

    How are you creating the borders? Also, be consistant on your image sizes...some you are sizing by width, some height, som are just messed up! A general size for net viewing is 800 width for landscapes or 800 height for for verticals....good first round tho!

    yeah the borders are funny :rofl: How are you going around that? Use the canvas size option + automated tasks

    but I liked the pics, specially the last one becuase the sky fits the scenery perfectly.

    thanks for the compliments, and yah ill try use the canvas size option...

    yah i just wanted to get a few of these uploaded on the net.. didnt really see what i was resizing them too.....

    on a side note

    is there a better program to process the raw images? im just using the canon program and i dotn think its as "user friendly" as i find photoshope to be?

    I might be upgrading my lense to a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L so that might mean I will be selling my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8.......good way of getting a good lense for a cheaper price???

    What do you mean by this? I always add a layer and then increase the canvas size of that layer, put it on the bottom and then pick a color.

    If you dont mind cutting off your image......select all, stroke, select border width...done

    If you dont want image cut off, increase canvas size by how ever many pixels you want your border.......

    Either way, way easier then waht you are doing

    Nice! I'm happy because I can see them.

    My only comment would be that the one with the text on the stone, with a shallow DoF I get "irritated" that I can't read the whole thing, KWIM? In any event, nice pictures. :)
