I'll jump in here for Rick. What we have here is a suck-a-rama. By that it is meant that all your pictures really suck. Maybe you could try recording nature sounds instead.

He's obviously a plant lover. Now now, you know what the say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't lead a horticulture.

Anyway, the last shot is the best exposure. While shutter speed is obvious - the faster the more it will freeze action. Aperture controls what they call the depth of field. Look at the earlier photo of the mug with the man in the background. The reason the man is out of focus is because it was shot with a large (as in wide open) aperture. If he had more light, or a much slower shutter speed, he could close it down, making it smaller, which would bring the background into better focus. Then you can get into ISO settings which is the sensitivity of the film, or the digital sensor now days. But explaining all that here would take way too much time and space.

Argh! Those damn power lines! That pic was on the way home from the DNF rally. I was cold, tired, hungover, and had to pee, which is why I stopped. I've been wishing I had stopped 100yds sooner or later ever since.

I got totally lucky with the car passing by.

Thanks for the input. Lots to learn...

Here are a few the of the photobucket leftovers I found. Just a couple of shots that I liked ok. Nothing fancy. All of these are with my p&s (Canon SX200IS). I also follow the "Take a lot and hope for a few"! Seems like these are all pics from rides.

Some from the DNF rally:











Just a couple more random shots, cuz I love takin em










Ok! I promise I'm done

Sepia tone. Makes the photo look old. That would work really well with the BMW. Since there are so many I'll pick a few. I really like the lone rider on the dirt road. I don't know how much road is cropped out of the top, but if it had been shot with a little less foreground and more of the road leading off behind him it would have really added to the feeling of the photo. The beemer with the sign really needs a foregroundectomy and again the power pole support line to the right distracts from the good looking bike. And in a similar vain, look at the swamp photo cropped. The thin horizontal makes it more visually appealing. See how it makes the reflections in the water mirroring themselves more prominent.

Ride and Shoot is what I call following Peaches through Jafrica after dark.

I'm enjoying this Rick! Can I post a few more for commentary? (Again unedited or cropped or other wise modified, straight from the Olympus)

Look here you little midget..... The point I was trying to make is that I have been goofing around with the settings, I just don't know when it's appropriate to change them or which ones to even change.

This better?

I would encourage you to work on the focal distance to show more of her and encourage you to get me her phone number or tell me where her room is...
