    ^In all fairness we come here to learn and hone our eye... highdell was blunt but sometimes that is worth a lot to a beginner if taken as a challenge to learn.

    ^ i didnt mean my post to be negative. I apologize if it came across that way
    to me, if it was a teaching tool then most would expect feed back on how to improve.
    When I look at the car photos I dont see a "snapshot" with the exception of the last one.
    The s2000 was composed. They clearly paid attention to framing the car and the second one shows thought into dof.
    car meets are very difficult and sometimes not worth shooting. you work with what you have. I shoot alot of cars and Im trying to get away from it, but im pretty good at it.

    Another note of learning this ridiculously expensive art, photography forums can be awesome. I frequent POTN (a canon site) which has a ton of knowledge. Check it out if you guys want to read and view good shots. but beware, there are some people there with ridiculous egos and attitudes

    in regards to the photo above, the quality has been killed by where ever its hosted or uploaded, but that is one awesome shot. what are the horses for though? Ive never seen it

    oh and Highdell is quite polite, based on the short emails / PM we had previously

    ^It's an art installation at Burning Man '05 constructed of welded rebar and road gators (truck tire treads). Yea, whatever the smallish image had left got crunched in the upload.

    Edit: I should add that I try to keep copies of images I sell quite small so that they can't be pirated. Some of the images you guys are posting are big enough to be downloaded and sold by a chinese picture dealer... I,m only concerned for my fine art images.

    I'm far from a professional, but I've been having a blast learning to use my iPhone camera.

    If you've driven to Mammoth from Los Angeles along Hwy 395, you've likely seen these cabins, just south of Lee Vining, CA.

    ^^^Hell of a metaphor you got going...

    My only suggestion would be to crop off the slightly blown out foreground to the clump of green for even more impact.

    I suppose I could be incorrect in that every snapshot is a photograph; and that a photograph necessarily is the root of 'photography'.... - Literally

    I wasn't trying to be nice - I also wasn't trying to be mean (if that's what you are implying)

    This Guy sums up what I was getting at.

    I'm no photo genius by any means - even mtbtacolover, the guy that shot them, got what I meant.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Thanks bsieb. I tried cropping it and I do like it better.

    90% of my photos are snapshots taken with my iPhone. If they ever get a 10 megapixel camera, I wouldn't use anything else.

    These are taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX9V that I recently picked up. For a P&S, not too shabby.

    Believe it or not, this picture of a bald eagle perched was taken about 1/4 mile away using the 16x optical zoom this camera has. Tried to get closer but some cyclists spooked it away before I could get closer.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Now days it is hard to define exactly what photography is. Quite honestly, I see things that have been so worked over in Photoshop, it makes me wonder how bad the shot was to begin with.
