There's a fair bit of lense flair in some of these photos and converting 35mm prints to digital photos likely hasn't helped things either but these do represent some of my recent work. I'd like to have you people tear apart my hobby pictures and help me work towards becoming a better photographer.

These were mostly (all but two of them) where taken on my Nikon N65 35mm camera and then I ordered a CD of them when I had prints developed. I got the prints done at Walmart and it seems that their shitty conversion software actually cut off a few pictures. For instance the picture of the statue of Cabrillo has lost several mm at the top while the picture of the flowering century plant had the left side partially cut off. In the print both of these things were totally there but in the digital version the frame was cropped to tightly. I'm going to see if I can get these shots digitalized at a better photo-developer so that the whole picture is present in the digital copy.

Yes, it was taken on a mountain road leading up to Sequoia National Park.

A cemetary is where they bury dead people. Can't tell you where unfortunately.

It is Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary which is a military cemetary holding dead vets from the Civil War up to Iraq & Afghanistan.

I'm going to either have to scan prints myself or start using noise reduction software. I sure as hell won't let Walmart process my film again since thier print to digital software blows ass.

Some of those pics were excellent- i really liked the anemone, the waterfall, the ocean scene and the gazelles and birds. I think maybe you'd be better off with a digital camera as you can fiddle about with the pics more, and I think on some of the pics, a bit of strategic cropping would just focus the subject a little more.

I've found the problem with 35mm cameras is that often what you see on the viewfinder doesnt translate to the final pics, and the quality is very gritty. I've got a bog standard Olympus digital camera I bought 5 years ago, and its great- always gives great exposure, and the quality is amazing. you also see on the viewfinder exactly whats in the frame. Worth the money (about 300 at the time) and i've never had to buy a new cartridge yet. It does eat batteries though so rechargeable are a good investment, and I suspect the technology has moved on a bit, but I recommend them in general.
