i recently purchased a new camera, a canon a3000 IS, at the moment i am not sure what to think of it, i used to have a canon powershot a460 that i bought about 3 or 4 years ago, all of those photos can be seen in my panoramio album here http://www.panoramio.com/user/4076462

i broke that camera though recently, by mistake so had to get another one, it was between a powershot a495 or a3000 IS

so since i have had my new camera i have been taking many photos, some with the gorilla pod tripod and others just normally

i went to a local park today and took some shots over there and came back with these, i uploaded these as untouched photos so they are about 3mb, you can download the photo to view full size if you need to http://picasaweb.google.com/sarahandkev ... nuary2011#

what i am looking for is criticism, because i am not sure if i am satisfied with the shots or not, sounds strange i know, but is it the camera, or is it the settings that i am using? i think today i left image stabilization on by mistake when using a tripod, not sure if that did me any favours or not?

and for most photos i used the landscape mode, and in some photos i manually adjusted the exposure

or it could be a case of the photos look good but my screen could be too dark, i am not sure what it is, but what is what this post is for

hope to receive many replies, thank you for reading

There are some quite nice pictures! :wink:
It seems that the WB didnt take the perfect WB (WB= White Bbalance), some snow pictures are a bit blue others a bit brown. Maybe a PP program can fix it for you.

Ooh, Im sorry! I didnt understand your post I think :wink:
I really like the picture of the swan, very good neutral colours and (almost) perfect composition. If you had the whole swan inclusive the reflecitve swan in the water, you should have had a very good picture!

that is ok, it is my fault for not explaining it well enough i guess :P

i am happy to hear you like the swan photo, and i understand what you say about the reflection, if only i had thought about the reflection, i obviously was not thinking about reflections, yes that would have made the photo much better, well i guess i will learn more and more as i go along and take more and more photos

Hi Kevin,
I have a question about the geo-tags. Is that something you intentionally set to "on" or did your camera automatically tag the gps location of each photo you took? It is fine in this case, because it is birds in a park, but you want to be careful with those kinds of things because you can accidentally announce to the internet where you live and when you are away from home!

hi jenny thanks for the concern but what i do is manually set the geo location, and i never tag any photos where i live, so i should be safe i guess, thanks for the nice post though
