First "real" photos taken with the K100D
Posted By: seymop, 11-26-2007, 06:25 PM

Hey everyone,
I really am sort of a newb at photography for the most part. I get by with experimenting and not so much with the "right technique". If you could let me know how these photos turned out and please critique them, i would be happy. I took these pictures in the Adirondack Mountains about a month ago. Help me out on physical things i could do like angle of the sun, composition, lighting, filters to use, lenses, etc. (by the way i used a standard 18-55mm.)

I have also edited these photos with photoshop trying to mimic a polarizing lens. I found a good tutorial online. thanks, justin

Both shots are fantastic, the reflection of the trees and mountain are superb. I would suggest investing in some graduated filters to try and balanace the sky and water. The water is expertly lit but the sky is a bit overblown. I also have problems with this kind of shot, I havnt the money to invest in such filters but if you get the time of day right then you can get away with probably a more dramatic shot. Either early morning or early/ late evening.

Both beautiful shots though
