Are these Good photography pictures?

I justtttt turned 13, so they're not professional or anything like thatt.

The pictures are numbered, if you could just say the number and leave a comment about the picture that would be great!








This is for 4-H.. We can only have 10 pictures..

Then one Color Salon Print & one Black and White..

For your answer just say like

1) i really like the color, etc.

Like that..



i know, they're not the best with exposure and stuff... i have a kodak easyshare V1003, 10 mega pixels.

I want the Nikon D40.. But my parents think it's a bit expensive.

    No, they are not good "photography pictures" - or photographs in everyone elses language.

    11. isn't all bad - at least you got down lower to get the shot but the background is too busy.

    12. badly composed snap. you have to much space at the top and you have cut the bottom bird. Would have been better to concentrate more on the birds and cut out the water.

    13. uninteresting snap really -

    14. as 13 plus the horizon is not straight - a big no on seascapes.

    15. worst of the bunch a boring scene with the flare making it even worse.

    16. just a badly taken snapshot.

    1. it's kind of a boring subject and could use better light and focus 2. I recommend cropping it for better composition and to eliminate distracting details. It could also use better light (aim for strong shadows and contrast) and focusing. 3. flip it to face the right direction, but I mean it's average I suppose 4. the white branches in front are more distracting than an aid to the composition 5. the texture is nice but it's not an exciting photo per say 6. re-read 4 & 5 7. kind of interesting, but if you were to use this as "abstract" you should push the contrast and up the exposure a bit 8. somewhat blurry, nothing exceptionally exciting if you're really interested in photography here's the best stuff you can learn about: Kodak Rules of Composition (just do a google search) Shutter Speed & Aperture Elements of Art Principles of Design

    For snapshots they're all just okay. The shot of the starfish on the beach (#13) could have been better had you taken the shot much closer and while laying on the beach (level with the starfish). If you have an interest in photography, you should ask your parents to get you a book on basic photography.

    11) Snapshot

    12) Snapshot

    13) Over-exposed and blurry when looked at closely. Needs a smaller aperture and a longer shutter speed, plus the focal point needs to be on the star fish (or hyperfocal distance).

    14) Snapshot, get the whole pier in next time, or at least have some catching element in the photo.

    15) Snapshot. Recompose without the sun in the frame which causes mass underexposure.

    16) Snapshot.

    Not being harsh, but speaking the truth, as anyone with a camera on auto can compose those photos (and they were shot on auto as the EXIF data says).

    I left a few comments on Flickr. They are pleasant enough snapshots. I enjoyed browsing through them, and I like your subjects. Some of them show you are thinking about what you are snapping. Are they good "photography pictures"? Yes, for your album and to remember these days in the future. They are not great examples of photography, no. But you are a beginner, and have loads of time to learn more and improve your skill. Here are a couple of links for beginners:

    Begin learning some technical and artistic basics, even if your camera is not adjustable. Take a class or join a club or group if you can. Look at good images in books and magazines. Visit the library for a book on basic photography. Particularly delve into the basic elements of composition. Good composition will improve your shooting, even when using the most basic P&S camera on auto. Learn to see and use good lighting. Learn to hold the camera straight! (I have that problem, too, but my camera viewfinder has a grid inside which I use frequently. In seascapes, just use the ocean line.)

    Continue to learn and practice. Have fun and show us your progress.

    Your best ones are 13 and 15. The rest are just snapshots, and your cropping could use some work. Not bad for just starting out though. Keep taking photos and you'll learn in leaps and bounds.

    You have alot of potential to become a good photographer judging from these photos. However, I think you should work on composition, lighting and also editing your photos. Photoshop is expensive, so you could download GIMP (free).

    Good luck!

    did you take these?

    they are REALLY good! I looked at all of them, not just the ones you posted. I love them ALL. you are really talented.

    11) is so cute. I love how crisp it is, it is a natural picture and the dog it adorable.

    12) is beautiful. I want to jump right into that water! so clear, it reminds me of summer (=

    13) I LOVE this one. it's my fave out of the ones that you posted. it looks professional!

    14) my second fave. nice shot, beautiful scenery, and again, it reminds me of summer.

    15) the sun looks gorgeous.

    16) aweh!!!!!

    Like I said, I looked at all of them. I also loved the one with the rainbow, the one of the flower close up and the water blurry, and the one with all the flowers. there was also a black and white one, of a little wooden outhouse? or shed? I don't know, but I loved it.

    girl, you got talent.
