I love the strong geometrical elements in the composition and the light is just amazing with such a beautiful sky as background.

Free Range Eggs

Free Range Eggs by netta1234

A really original one Netta!
I think that if you turn it into a black and white image it will have a really interesting abstract feeling Grin

Blue Sky

Great picture Netta! Grin


Ballintoy by canonfan

I really like the composition of this image and the sky is perfectly expose, so beautiful with those white clouds Grin
However I think the white balance is a little bit on the green side, at least for my taste, apart from that this is a great picture!

God's Wish

God's Wish by prabhusinha

I really like version 2 because it has a more abstract feeling. The flowers over the black floor kind of make a pattern which I find really interesting

Study of a Fence Post

Study of a Fence Post by Disee

Hi Disee, I know exactly what you mean! Smile
I've been trying to learn to use those softwares as well, also to get a more 'professional feel' in my images and it hasn't been easy.. But I have found Lightroom to be A LOT more friendly than Photoshop.. So I would recommend to check it out.. Also I bought some Scot Kelby's books on that matter, I have learned a few useful things, but what have REALLY helped me (because of its simplicity) is this website:


by a photography team called The Mansurovs. They have a lot of photography tutorials and tips that I have found more simply, useful and easy to remember than those of Scot Kelby and it has really helped me to improve a lot my digital photos!!

So don't feel like you have to limit yourself because Photoshop is so difficult to use and check that website (they have a lot of info about Photoshop as well) and if you have the opportunity I really recommend you to get Lightroom 3. It's amazing all you can do, from setting the right white balance and exposition to eliminating noise, applying graduated filters, and it's not that difficult to learn if you follow the tutorials on that website.

Keep on photographing whatever you want, because the most important thing that really sets apart great photographers is composition (they all started in B&W film, right?), the rest will come eventually!
