Nice shots, but for my eye far too much saturation!
Post some more.
Enjoy yours dSLR!

Cheers!

Thanks for your comment.
Is that so it is too much saturation?
Now I learn.

Hi Stephen,

I like your composition and all your verticals and horizontals are lined up nicely so that's a great start....I think just having an eye for that kind of thing really makes a big difference to pics. I do agree with Drazen though about the colours. Apart from "Debut #4" the colours all look highly saturated. Are you increasing saturation in camera or post-processing?

Just keep on taking pictures and experimenting with different techniques and different settings. The best lessons come from learning from your mistakes...I should know, I'm continually making them :)

Good luck and have fun!

Thanks for your suggestion, Mark.
There's a long way to go into photograhy.
Will continue to take more and learn more.
Will share with you all in future.

Here is my first attempt on evening sun shot.
Please comment to me so that I can learn from you all.

Another one will be the night light shot.

Hi vandcooler,

Nice shots! Just in case you don't know (and sorry if you do!) it's possible to display thumbnails (preferred height/width less than 500 pixels) directly in your posts like so:

Image

To just get an image displayed enclose the path to the image with img and /img tags like so:
Code:
[img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com2094/1960724939_8e7224cf49.jpg[/img]


If you want the image to be "clickable" then enclose the img link above with url=... and /url tags like so:
Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/vandcooler/1960724939/][img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2094/1960724939_8e7224cf49.jpg[/img][/url]

Ignore the "Code:" labels - they are only there so I could force phpBB to display the text rather than the images. If you want to know more have a look at this page.

Bob.

Ya, thanks a lot, Bob.
Actually I do try to post the picture directly but just cant make it viewable.
With this, now I know.
This is the example.

Hi Stephen,
Great sunset in the "Sweet Afterwork Homecoming" pic and the "Eye of Malaysia" pic is simply stunning! I can't make out what is creating the green light effect in that pic...what is it? Some kind of light show?

Stephen, now you have to get the right url for the pic:
1. go to the pics main page, like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vandcooler/1961590901/
2. click on "all sizes": the large (1024 x 853) pic will appear.
3. click on "medium": the (500 x 417) pic appears.
4. now look at the bottom of the pic to the line "2. Grab the photo's URL:"
5. copy the url below (something like http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2250/193 ... f0a996.jpg). Important: you need the "farm3.static.flickr.com"-part in there, otherwise it will not work!
6. copy the url to your post between the [img]...[/img] brackets.

That should work!

---------------------
Ah, ok. I see, you did make it work. Congrats!

Ya, actually it is some kinda light and music show above the lake. It is one of the must visit place in Malaysia during this Visit Malaysia 2007 festival. From there U can take a ride on the Eye of Malaysia, have a perfect view of Kuala Lumpur city view.


P/S: Thomas, thanks for your step by step explanation regard the picture posting. I do appreciate it.
