    I don't mind selective color overall... not my favorite thing, but I don't not like it...

    That being said, #1 would be awesome with a more shallow DOF..

    Very nice shots... some fair warning as far as OTAP goes... there's not a whole lot of love for selective color, you'll always get a few comments about it. Don't let that discourage you, it's the popularity of the technique that causes the natural recoil. I can tell you know your shit, there's a lot of really nice shots here. You'll be an instant OTAP celebrity. by the way... scroll up and down with this second one in view... badass effect. :eek3::bowdown:

    thanks for the comments! I really have no idea what I'm doing as far as cameras go but I always thought I had somewhat of an eye for composition etc... being around visual disciplines pretty much my entire life, especially my architectural studies no doubt has taught me something. All those shots were taken with a cheap canon P&S on auto mode and now I want to get into SLR and see what can really be done...

    christ... you're a motherfuckin jedi n shit :eek3: read the tutorials to get an understanding of exposure, aperture, and light. when you're ready to bust into the DSLR world, these guys are loaded with info and opinions about what you should get.

    Hot tip though: This forum is loaded with Canon and Nikon fanboys. Before you buy one, put your hands on both before deciding what you like, cause this is an expensive hobby. It'll cost you an arm, leg, and a couple of ribs to switch to the other after you're entrenched.

    I came in this thread expecting to see pictures of some fat nugz... Found only some really cool pictures.

    I'm still on the fence weather I should be disappointing or not. BTW, I'm totally copying your wooden siding picture (idea) for this weeks assignment for my B&W class, texture. Awesome picture.
