    I went to the lake front and downtown this afternoon to take some shots. I thought that I had some pretty good shots but when I got back I was rather disappointed with the results. Here are some of the better ones but even these i'm not too happy with. Any thoughts?

    My fav is 3. I really like the contrast of orange and black/gray

    2 could be good, would need some editing to get rid of the distractions
    - red/orange thing
    - lines (tire tracks?) on the left

    now go check my pics :)
    I have not been able to shoot in forever and need some pointers

    thanks, yeah didn't notice that orange thing. and the lines are cracks in the ice. I was on a rather sketchy walkway over the lake.

    I like 5.

    First three could use some better technique imo. Exposure and depth of field.

    what'd did you all do? more exposure? anything else?

    I've been starting to read Understanding Exposure and I found out I have tons to learn.

    straightened slightly, adjusted levels by the histogram, a slight tweak on the white balance.
