    Try using a CP for outdoors. Hold camera straight. The creativity will come with time.

    first 3 are blah the last one is cool I would get a little more of the sky in the shot and shoot it early morning or evening so the sky doesn't look so blown out.

    Well after I came home last night I was pretty angry that I only get to shoot usually mid day (when it's bright as hell outside) so I ordered me a Hoya Circular Polarizer, Also Most of the shots that I shot were in AV mode.....But I realized that the pictures that turned out good were the ones I shot in manual mode just using the cameras light meter. I guess practice makes perfect (or alteast acceptable)

    Anyway, time to just read some books :)

    Thanks for all the recommendations.

    The bush with the damn white flower things keeps pulling my attention in this one away from the actual subject....grrr

    So yeah, I need a lot of practice.

    Not bad. I would work on how you frame things as that can make something not so interesting look somewhat interesting. I guess that's just practice. You'll discover what works and what doesn't.

    Thanks for all the responses :)

    Hopefully I'll get my filters this week and I'll go shooting again this weekend.
     
  13. Are you using the stock lens?

    I stopped using my 18-55mm, it kept pissing me off. So I bought the EF 50mm F/1.8, and it's a pretty cool lens, helps out a lot with everything.
