What, you have no trees in Singapore? :P

Just nip over the causeway you'll find more trees than you can .. err .. shake a stick at.

My original intention was to have a tree in the middle of barren wasteland but its wasteland that we don't have here :P Anything else would probably be too common or not to my liking.

(If you reply immediately it'll be your hundredth post :))

Would this be your Canary Wharf photo? I'm sure you could do better with a whole month of photography to try out ideas.

It is, but that would mean taking another trip to the city.

But, like you said I could do better in a month so keep the criticisms coming :D.

Hi pgtips, thanks for your honesty - I'm afraid rules are rules though and the photo has to be taken during the month of September 2008 to qualify.

Now this is one theme that Istanbul would fit right into, alas, I'll be continuing my studies elsewhere. Here are some shots I've taken (much) earlier that would probably make it. These are liberally edited stuff, and I kinda like the dreary effect.

Hey guys I have a question. If lets say I am out and have taken a bunch of pictures. How do I remember the shutter speed, focal length ,iso.ects? Is there a place in the menus thats tells you all of this information?
Or do I just have to do my best to remember all the details to enter?

Sorry if this is a dumb question but thanks for any help.

ur camera saves all that info to the photo, so when you upload it to your comp, all that is availible through whatever program you use to view it or just right click for properties.

Yes Twcman306, you don´t have to remember all those data!
As Smiles77 already said, all data about shutterspeed, aperture, etc. ect. is stored as metadata (EXIF-data) in the picture. Most of this data can already read out by simple photoviewers. But for more data you need a so called EXIF-viewer. Such software are Opanda or PhotoMe.
They can distract a wealth of info from your picture!

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

I have a bit of a problem. I live in a city, but I have no tall buildings or anything like that. This may not be a big problem but I don't like many city photos without tall buildings. I want the best if you know what I mean. Any suggestions for this? I don't have the gas money to go and drive to the big city about an hour away. What to do??? Ahh!!! Haha. Well I was thinking of doing some like the post I did a while back with the cars going by on Lake Worth Rd. I am puzzeled. >_<
