Hey there!

These photos are the one I took while on a road trip. They are just me appreciating the beauty of nature, (that was poetic!) whatever so...

Hope you all like it and any kind of feedback appreciated! :D

Hi ChocolateMoonLight! It's great you had a camera with you at this moment, and I really like the colors in these photos. You can't really go wrong with sunset pictures! My only problem is that these photos are GIGANTIC! On the main Art & Photography page, check out the threads on How to Resize and Image and how to Resize Without Photobucket. Oftentimes, the larger a photo it is, the worse the quality is. I'd realy love to see more of your photography in smaller form! Keep snapping!

Hello ChocolateMoonLight,

These are all really good pictures and I love the warm pastel tones of the landscape and yes
They are just me appreciating the beauty of nature, (that was poetic!)
they really do make you appreciate the beauty of nature! I enjoyed how in most of the photos they are mostly of the sky with just a little bit of grassy terrain at the bottom, it was really very effective in these pictures. Okay now I have a bit of advice for you so that you can make your pictures even better.

Firstly I really hate to repeat what others have already gone over and mentioned but they are both right, these pictures really need re sizing, no question about it. Since I have been in the position before where I didn't know how to re size pictures but I knew I needed to I have included some links for you to try. Firstly my favorite editing site http://www.picnik.com/app#/home/welcome, just remember if you want to use this website then make sure you don't get tempted to over edit your pictures.

Another alternative is to use tutorials that Abigail_W. and Elinor Brynn have made. http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/topic59687.html The first one is made by Elinor Brynn about how to re size using Photobucket the only flaw in this method is that you have to sign up for photo shop, which is an quick and easy process but it is still nevertheless a setback. Which is why Abigail_W. has made another tutorial which tells you how to re size without the hassle of signing up for Photobucket. The link is here> http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/topic67812.html I honestly have no idea which of the tutorials is more effective, I think it really depends on what method you like personally.

The other thing that I found was that it was extremely difficult to see the photos as they weren't very clear at all. At first I actually thought they were all the same picture because it was so blurry. You really need to play around with that on photo editing websites, try Picnik (the one I suggested earlier) or Photobucket http://photobucket.com/. Again I really don't know which one of these is a better site. Just have a go with each and find out.

My favorite photo of the bunch would have to be the first one because of the sun glowing so brightly on the right edge of the photo because it made it much warmer and colorful and it made the picture a whole extra bit better. I also like how you captured the different tones of the sky and how it changed from a salmon pink to a lavender purple. i thought it just looked really beautiful. if you would like any more reviews on your work feel free to nag me about it and I will get around to it as soon as possible.

Hello! Back by request...

I love the contrasting colors and, as I said before, you really can't go wrong with sunsets. My only suggestion would maybe be to adjust your focus a little more next time so the sun is clearer. I realize you were probably going very fast in a car and there wasn't much you could do in the way of perfecting the shots. Good job and I'd like to see more of your photography!

-Abigail

It's thee best when you have a camera at the perfect moment. Personally, I take my camera every where so i don't miss out on a gorgeous moment like this. Well done for capturing this, because I know it can be quite hard to get it right. What type of camera are you using?
These are really cute photos, so, well done. Maybe next time you could experiment with the angle and what can make your photo more interesting and unique. (:
:D
