At the cemetery
by smistComment by smist:
So, after two years of being a user on this site, only voting at some challenges once in a while and browsing around... I finally took part in a challenge! Why? Because I just got a digital camera for the first time about a month ago. (Maybe I should have gotten one while I still lived in Iceland, seems like taking pictures there is the way to go...)
I don't know anything at all about photography really. I don't know what words like contrast and saturation mean, have no idea what impact it will have on a shot to change the ISO number, no clue how to edit a pic other then crop and resize and so on... But! I'm here to learn that. I'll have to do some reading and experimenting but hopefully I'll learn something before I give up on this hobby :P
I knew this was not really a good picture when I entered it but I wanted just to try to take part in a challenge, didn't really care much about the outcome :) I expected it to place a little bit higher though, maybe around 150th place? :P
Anyways, thanks a lot for the comments, I really appreciate them! :)
bfox2: one day I'll be able to fully understand your comment but at the moment I'm too much of a n00b :P Thanks a lot though, I'm sure it will help later on to get such detailed comments!
joycamp: Thank you so much for the comment, it's nice to know that my photo touched someone :) (unless the tears were because my photo was so awful that it was pain to look at it ;P )Message edited by author 2006-05-17 06:14:37.
