RE: Another "is It Anet Worthy" Thread Of Me

Vik - The title of this thread is "is it Anet worthy?" I never said "A.net rules the world of photography." (Whatever that means BTW). The thread is about making photos for this website, isn't it?

RE: Another "is It Anet Worthy" Thread Of Me

Why? So you can spend all your time trying to make a picture "look good" in Photoshop? OP should focus on mastering photography in good light before attempting conditions like this. Learn about things like white balance and exposure. It's obvious from these examples you don't know how to do either. ...

With the wide-angle shots, try to aim for a vertical center point.
