    I took some limited shots today. The colours were great as the sun was peaking through the clouds. I caught a shot with the fresh snow on the local mountains in the background. If the weather is nice tomorrow i'll go back and try and get some serious shots in. I was just at the fence today, all from the same spot. The guys are all really cool and i could go wander around wherever i like and they'd come to me trying to get some good shots in.

    Let me know what you think, and where i could improve.

    Start focusing on the subject not the background, and stop using ricer angles.

    having people in the background throws it off


    what equipment did you use? you could have benefited from a quicker shutter speed

    Also, try to better your timing.
    And like fag said, backgrounds are too cluttered.

    Just practise.
    Nobody's expecting you to take perfect shots the first orsecond time you shoot.
    But if you fuck-up the third time, sell your camera. :mamoru:
