    I just took this and was wondering if somone more "camara savvy" could explain why the water drops seem to have a back to front tail. It looks like they are rising and not falling. Im guessing this is becuase the shutter speed was to slow but I have no real idea.

    I've had my first DSLR (Nikon D90) one week now and i'm starting to see things in a new light. I'm not saying I've turned into a photographer but instead i'd like to think that i'm no longer a point and shooter.

    This is exactly how it came out of the camera, I just downsized it to be web friendly.

    Another straight from the camera with a bit of cropping.

    [​IMG]

    Again straight from the camera with a slight crop from the top (there was a twig!)

    [​IMG]

    This is my first macro attempt. I have cropped it a lot and reduced noise in photoshop.

    C&C welcome.

    I'd like to see the exif for that macro shot and then maybe give you some c&c.

    Ok, nice one... I see your shutter speed was rather high, 1/1250 is not necessary. Instead you should've lowered the ISO to 100 and then maybe raise the aperture to f7.1 or so. That would give you a shutter speed of around 1/640 sec (depending on light at the moment) which is plenty for a handheld 300mm lens. These settings would result in less noise and mainly in better sharpness of the photo. Reading your exif, I can see that your lenses maximum aperture at the long end is f5.6, the one you used. These sort of lenses never work well in with the lens open all the way. Next time, try stopping down to f7.1 or even f8, the photo should be a lot sharper, at f5.6 it's way too soft. If you need to raise your ISO after stopping down, do so, ISO 200 is not too bad in the end.

    Oh, composition wise, try to capture a whole butterfly next. I know you went for a more detailed approach, but for that you'll really need a different lens, with a 300mm zoom, I'd settle for photos of whole insects really. Not a bad attempt actually, I still quite like it. I like the original a lot more than the crop you posted here :). Keep it up.

    Sorry if they're too big. Is there a size limit?

    @Repo Man. Love that cloud shot dude :)

    EDIT: Just noticed ImageShack seems to have altered the res. so they don't quite look like they did :(

    Looks really great, the 2nd shot especially is really fantastic. Do you live in the area where you took the photos ?

    Cheers guys :). The second one is my fave, too. They were taken around Castle Hill in Huddersfield, a five minute drive from my house.
