Reading ur message made me almost feel like a criminal... I didnt read ur "rules"well, I admit that, otherwise I would have thought twice to use ur apple. I replaced ur apple, so relax. Have a great day.
Except I chose to zoom in on the apple closer while you chose to include the entire apple and the surroundings in.
Its just very interesting for me to compare. When I look at the 2 images side by side, it's like mine is showing "Here is some detail" and yours is showing "Here is the whole picture". And I really like both ways.
very pretty and interesting, i love it. ive been trying to get fast shutter pics lately and i find it really hard to get a fast shutter. what's your advice on how to get the fastest shutter possible without destroying the quality of the shot?
Well, I'm using a Canon XTi which is the same camera as the 400D (same camera, different names). I'm not sure how the 40D will work (I've never used one), but the 400D/XTi works great. I don't think you can increase the shutter speed any more than 1/200 when using flash. But that was my shutter speed when shooting this shot (and all my other water shots), so it doesn't seem to be a problem.
Not very but white balance confuses me. I bought two books about photography and neither were helpful. One book was really just all about mirrors and reflectors (sort of a waste). The other gave a few helpful hints nothing to write home about. I'm still learning.
The white balance is the color of the whites in your photo and it can be called the temperature. In this photo, I have a very "cool" temperature, so my white balance looks blue. To be honest, I learned just about everything I know about photography by myself. Reading a book about it or taking classes to learn about it just wouldn't help me. I think photography's one of those things that's best learned through trial and error.
