Hi everyone !

Here are some pics I shot on thursday with my brand new D40. Even though I had circa 150, these are the only one I really like - it does take time to master a DSLR and make good use of it.
For most of them, there were minor color/brightness adjustments on Apple Aperture (as usual with me ^^).

1) Scenery from the town where I live

Image


2) I liked the perspective on this one

Image

3) Just thought the rock looked good :P

Image


4) Sculpture from a contemporary art exposition

Image


5) Another sculpture from the same exposition

Image


6) You didn't expect me to climb the moutain by hand, did you ? :D
Image

7) Stairway to heaven ? :wink:


Image




Any criticism and comments accepted ! ;)

Wow you live in a very scenic area! I like the first and last best, aptly named too! :D

Great shots Guillaume!

Always a pleasure to see the work of a fellow D40-shooter..lol!

All very interesting images. Hard to choose a favorite. I'd say the last six ones..lol..only because the first one is not as clear with details as the following ones.

So what do you think of it? Have you found any noticeable strengths and weaknesses you could name yet, or is it too soon?

The succession of doorways - no. 2 - is the floor slanting a little down and to the right, or might you have tiled the camera a tad?

Good "red meets blue" on the rocks there!

Suitably confusingly modern geometry in the two from the exhibit.

The view with the cable-cars is sharp G.! Good composition.

The stairway to heaven..very nice monochromatic image. Although it's hard to tell at this size, maybe a step or two down in exposure bias could give you even more texture-detail on the walls, without sacrificing the bloomy light.

Grenoble - clearly a picture-friendly area to live. Pretty large from the looks of it too. Looking forward to seeing more from around there :-)

Cheers!

yip yip, you Nikon wielders...good work, and all of the shots show something different....love the tunnels....not crazy about the sculptures, (but more because I am not into angles, then because of your photographic abilities, because they are great shots)...interesting rocks, and beautiful city...a well rounded travel log...loved it. One of these days we will start a running series, on where we live...say a shot a day per month...that would be fun.
