No, it's not a problem; I don't usually go out trying to take great pictures. I've got a lot that aren't here for a reason, heh.

I like scenery and nature, which is why most of the horizontal shots are here. Some of them are just pictures that are "fun to look at" for me. I've never pursued photography as anything more than an idle hobby, so getting feedback about how I compose pictures is always helpful.

This second shot is just fantastic! Wow. I really think it's fascinating. For one thing, the conveyor looks like a golden bridge to heaven... that just ends in mid-air. Oops!

The steel and the lights are lovely and artistic, with the man-made, almost lacy structure so perfectly dividing the darkness of the sky from the lightness of the earth.

It's ironic that this visually-appealing creation is for the purpose of moving... dirt. Juxtaposing the intricate fabrication of man versus the ancient plainness of the earth. Okay, I'll shut up now.

You know what, I think you should get a nice print of the last shot, frame it, and present it to your boss (or the company president ) as a gift. It wouldn't cost you too much, and would be a nice (suck-up) gesture.

If 'scads' of people loved it, you could offer prints for sale, rake in the cash, retire young and go live on an island in the South Pacific.

Okay... maybe not.
Wow, thanks a lot Windswept. I don't usually get a lot of critique for my shots at work so this is good.

I don't think i will be printing off a copy to give to my boss just yet. I think brown nosing isn't looked at to kindly around here. Maybe when i leave this job i will do a nice montage with some of the better shots.

On the afternoon i went out to take these shots, it was just gorgeous. I only had one afternoon available to shoot as much as i could. It's a great place to shoot though, with massive equipment and the really nice landscape. The mine is surrounded by hills, so it was easy to get in a 4WD and look for a nice place to take the photos.

I'll try and post some more as soon as i get back on my normal computer.

I liked the moon in this shot, though I wish it were a little bigger.

ShadowOfGed, your last photo: those are Peter Werth moccasins! I had a pair of those a few years ago, right down to the colour. 'Course I didn't ruin them by tucking awful blue jeans under the tongue. WHY do people do that?! Number one rule for wearing trousers, any trousers, with shoes, any shoes: let the leg fall over the top of the shoe. Else you look like an ungainly clown. While you're at it, make sure the colour of the socks matches the trousers, not the shoes: the goal is elegance, not big-foot. The guy in the photo has also decided to fold up half the leg... (No offence if this is your best friend, by the way.)

Phoenix, I like your third shot best; love the back-lit dust streaming off the truck's back. The golden light and golden dust is also very appropriate for a gold mine. Nice shot.

julesstoop, your shooting is good enough to deserve a better camera with lower noise, sort it out man!

No offense taken; he was just one of my coworkers this summer. He was also from Sweden. We'd been walking around a lot that day, so the jeans-tucked-behind-tongue problem may have been an accident. I agree that pants always go over the shoes, but sometimes I think this problem happens accidentally.

Actually, he is a younger sibling of a more famous one in Spain. They were made by the same guy.

I have no idea why I like this shot so much but I do. The original photo was quite a bit larger so I cropped it down a bunch and the resolution isn't great because of that. But I actually like the graininess in the shot. I'm taking a photography class now and we're working on composition. Any comments?

They were taping some sort of bollywood video or something at the time and that guy in the hot pink jacket was HILARIOUS. He was almost a walking caricature. We had a good time.

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

This is one of the first pictures I've ever taken with my new D80. Which is the first camera I've ever owned.

So click on the image and see my portfolio I just submitted for my class. It was a bit more of a pain than normal for me to shoot this time. I was "under the weather" for the first week of the portfolio which really limited me going outside in the freezing windy cold weather.

Can you believe the instructor wanted me to get up for a sunrise shot?!? I did, but it was tough.

My only real suggestion is to re-shoot that picture but frame it like you have it cropped now. The tip of the chopstick is a little distracting to me though, kinda sticking in my face. I like the noise (grain look) sort of, but you are far better off to take the image clean and add noise through Photoshop later if you wish. Or bump you ISO way up when you re-shoot it. Then you'll get a more natural type of noise from the start.

turtle2472, your tower photos are a bit like colour versions of the 1920s stuff when photographers were just getting used to the new Art Deco skyscrapers (Empire State Building, etc.) that were springing up, and therefore taking lots of photos of them. You've got a funky colour look going on in the one you posted to this thread: is that just the early sunshine or a bit of PS? I like the palette, reminds me a little of early Ektachrome that's starting to fade a bit.

What do you think of this guy's photos? He starts off with a great idea, decently executed (her eye is just starting to close, instinctively ), and then it sort of peters into a studenty, badly-edited collection of photos, a few of which are excellent and many of which show real talent. Just a young photographer whose stuff I came across a couple of days ago.

I hadn't seen his works before, thanks for the link though. I'll go through those pages in the near future.

As for my tower, it was taken at sunset. The shadow line just above the concrete and below the yellow stuff is created by the sun being pretty close to the horizon already. It just so happens that that wall faces mostly west. No PS in post production, just a touch of sharpening. Thanks for asking.

Further to this thread, has anyone started having a go with Panoramio? It's a twist on the Flickr thing, but with a tie-in to Google Earth. I think it's a very interesting way of showcasing pictures of the world.

Anyway, here's me: http://www.panoramio.com/user/164573

That is pretty cool. Does your camera capture GPS info or do you have to manually place every marker?

Manually placed. Nice way to remember where, exactly, you have been. I think if your camera supports Geotagging then it'll work with that, but it has a pretty simple interface to place the markers. I'm a little anal about placing the marker exactly where I stood while I took the photo, including zooming right in.

There existed some googlemaps mashups for flickr for some time (I geotagged many of my shots) and flickr has his own mapping for a while now, too. Maybe I'm missing something, but what is the difference between Panoramio and flickrMap?

BTW, I think the next step in the display of location based picture might look like this: http://phototour.cs.washington.edu/
