Newbee here.

Hi all, very new to the photograph scene. My background is, i'm a current serving member of the constabulary (please dont hold it against me). I am a real petrol head and possess a Nissan 350z in black. I have been taking photos at car shows with a point and squirt Kodac camera for years but have now borrowed a Fuji S9600 to try and improve the quality. The problem is i have know idea on what i'm doing. I have read some tutorials on the Net and took some picture which i will post later. Any advise and criticisums welcomed.

Re: Newbee here.

Welcome to Pixalo Rothers2901

Nice shots there Not at all shabby for someone just starting out in photography. I don't know how much if any editing you do, but some are not straight as the verticals are leaning.

The car shots have a good location and interesting angles and the night shots are well exposed if a little uninspiring in their subject matter! The light trails shot has added interest with the skyline detail. The hotel car park would have worked better if there was a car in the foreground - preferably an exotic one, but any car would have filled the gap and the rest of the shot would become the support act for it.

Take a look around the site and if you hve any questions, please ask. There is a file size limit of 300kb to display pictures on Pixalo and some of your pictures exceed this. Please reduce the file size to under 300kb.

Thanks for the feedback I have taken acouple more but as the above note re the file size. How do you reduce the file sizes, sorry if this is a lame question but this is all very new to me and have very little software, only what is on my laptop as standard.

Ideally you need some editing software, but you can also use some free applications such as Picasa or the Faststone Image Viewer if you don't use a Mac. There is also an on-line editor that needs no software download: Pixlr

I've only used Faststone so can't comment o the others, but as they are free you can give them all a try and see which one(s) you like best.
