    Too bad it was such a crappy day. The sky started to come out towards the end of the day though. Anyway, some C&C would be appreciated. Be gentle, i'm still a noob.

    I was using manual mode most of the time, and Av part of the time. Alot of my shots came out underexposed, so I definitely need to work on that.

    those are a little too wide to be snapshots, and being a noob, I would say this is a great start.

    I mean, I can see what you were trying to do in some of them, but the execution is a little off.

    Rebel XT, lens is Canon 10-22 f/3.5-4.5

    Thanks for the comments, I know they look like snapshots, but I don't really know how to overcome that :dunno: What exactly classifies them as snapshots?

    Usually when people say that they mean it looks like there wasn't a ton of thought in the composition, you saw something cool and took a quick shot. It's hard to take good shots. If you're starting out i would literally think about each shot for at least a minute. Take your time. Take a pic, look at it. Is it good or not? Think some more and take another one.

    Plus always push yourself to find unique ways to approach a subject. Don't just walk up to something say oh hey, that's pretty cool. *snap* and then walk away. Explore your subject and find some good perspectives.

    it's an overcast day, there isn't any "sky" to expose for.

    snapshots are usually your quick shot, the one that doesn't take much planning/composition/exposure adjusting. granted there isn't anything wrong with your photos though because you're new to it and I can almost guarantee that most of the people on this board didn't take much better photos their first time either.

    just keep shooting, you'll learn.

    What level of compression did you save these at? They look muddy and not quite in focus.

    Whoa, i was downtown this morning playing football. If you're ever interested in getting some action shots we play every Sunday morning. I'm looking to bring mine out in hopes of getting some decent action shots myself.
