    Sorry to be the first to say it, but those are completely boring.

    Try to pick a subject first and then take a shot. Too many distractions.

    6,7,8 have some BAD camera shake. looks like you shot 7/8 at 1/30 at 75mm. good rule of thumb is 1/focal length for a minimum shutter speed.

    they were taken w/ my long lens, and yeah, it was probably 1/30... I can't remember. I was literally on the job and couldn't set up a tripod, so it was hand-held. :hs:

    You shot the last few at 1/30th... raise your shutter speed.

    theres potential in that little shed somewhere.

    you didn't get it this time, but there's definitely potential there...

    Keep shooting. Before you take each picture, think to yourself 'why am I taking this picture' If you can answer that question with something that satisfies you, then shoot.

    That's what i was going for, was the shed. Sadly my job precludes me from wandering to get a better/different perspective... I just took a shitload more at a different location, which i'm pretty sure are going to be vastly improved. I've gotta run 'em through PP to verify. What's the protocol regarding large #'s of pics here? i've got ~200 though most are just going to get trashed.

    :hs: i was trying to blur out the trees in the foreground to focus on the shed... obviously didn't work too well due to the fairly thick tree cover.

    a wider aperture will blur things in front and behind the focus object, shutter speed doesn't have any effect on that. :o

    true, but in Av mode on the 350D, with a long lens, the aperture is limited, and in fairly low light the camera adjusts the shutter speed to compensate... thus resulting in the camera shake. :hs:

    I like the whole idea behind the shed, like what's been stated already. The only comment I would add is to trash anything with an electrical cord in it. It will ruin the picture everytime. I know it sucks. I have some trees in the yard that turn amazing shades, but I can never take pictures of them because there are electrical cords running everywhere.

    that's when its time to bump the iso or get a better lens that can shoot with a wider aperture. :o

    Yeah... i didn't think the light was that low to require 800+ on the iso, but looks like i was wrong.

    Definitely, the colors are amazing. Fall is great for that, but no matter what you are trying to do, that electrical cord will kill it everytime.

    :werd: I'll bring my camera back out there, and see if i can get some better shots at different times of day... there was one i meant to snap, but missed the opportunity. i wasn't paying attention to the time.

    I like them, but being a country boy I'm a sucker for fall foliage scenes. The colors aren't that nice here in Ohio yet. Maybe in a week or so.

    :rofl: our colors are just about gone. Maybe another week of yellow and some orange, and they'll be bare.
