Some of those are really impressive. Well done.

I think I may join that site & post some of my own pics.

You've got talent young lady!  ;D

Love your pics - especially the pumpkin one but then I think I'm currently a bit biased

What camera are you using?

I use a Nikon D80, i dont have alot of cool accessories yet, trying to live off of only a student loan is hard enough without buying cool new toys. On that note - If anyone wants to contribute to the buying Megan a 70-300mm AF VR Nikkor Lens fund, I wouldnt object

The following are merely my own personal opinions - you asked for criticism, and maybe it is hyper-criticism, so don't take it as an indication that I think they are bad pictures at all.

Like the 'Party on the Lawn'.

Like 'Sunset at Markdale', but maybe would haver preferred the terrain not to be totally blacked out - just to give the terrain a bit of texture, but not have it compete with the sky (realise this is not easy, since simply opening up would have given too much exposure to the sky - so either a graduated ND filter, or more work in the darkroom/on the computer).

'The Swan' is nice - but either a little to much, or a little to little - the disconnected back of the swan is a bit distracting - either a closer crop to remove it, or come further out to join it up with the neck.

The 'Romance at Meaford' is nice, but I would probably have reduced saturation (on the computer) for the grass area so as to give more prominence on the central subjects.

The 'Blue Hand' should have had more done to remove background clutter (this could all be done on the computer - blur, reduce contrast and saturation, for the background areas).

The 'Football' was a very well timed shot, and gives a good sense of the action, but again too much off field background clutter - much shorter depth of field would have helped.  The most annoying bit are the power lines across the background - and maybe some of that can be removed, or reduced on the computer - although I recognise that the overall shot is too complex to easily create masks to do much of the work that could have been achieved by simply reducing depth of field on the original shot.

OK - if we are showing off photos (and if Meg will excuse me for hijacking her thread - Meg, if you have a problem with it, let me know and I will split it off), I have some photos at:

http://bolgar.co.uk/Photos.php

Not trying to compete with Megs work, just piggy backing on the back of it (I believe Meg is doing a college course with her work - while mine are just holiday snaps with a bit of editing work done on them - and as Meg as said, she has yet to do the editing on hers).

I know maybe some of my stuff might be over-edited as I was sometimes playing around with the tricks the editor could do.
