    :) I can tell you that you are not alone! I feel exactly the same and other's work always looks better than mine - I think at least part of this is that we are all over critical of own work (I know I am).

    But I agree with your other point in that this thread is a great source of inspiration. I have got so much planned to do when I go in a couple of week I think I will be up 24/7 snapping new photos.

    The worst thing for me is looking at someone else's photo and thinking 'I would NEVER have take that photo; I just wouldn't have thought of it' as techniques you can learn, but creativity is a different matter! And I'm an IT Geek by trade and not many of them are creative (wrong side of brain!).

    I'm just glad I have somewhere to share my work at least and I'm grateful for all feedback and for the chance to see how others capture the same subject matter.

    I couldn't say it better but bu using these threads, my FLickr threads and other boards I am slowly starting to see some things that a year ago I wouldn't have seen.

    Also remember that probably 90% or more of the photos shared have been edited so you are not seeing the SOC results :)

    I know what you mean I am trying to trick my brain into thinking I'm creative by setting aside time each day to work on a photo and get away from code.

    Love Ponz and we've just been 'missing' each other the last few cruises (I'm on the Wonder, he is on the Dream.....I do a Dream cruise, he has moved to the Wonder....geeze). Certainly hope he is still on the Wonder next week!

    If you adjust your white balance i bet you'd be close as yours is on the warm side.

    I know this has been done a thousand times before :) I took a series of 20 manually pseudo bracketed photos and HDR'd them, but this tweaked single image turns out good if not better.

    I like it. I did a similar thing when I shot the bow of the magic in key west. The HDR was not nearly as goo as the single exposure tweaked.

    Hi Scott, Thanks for the tip. I played around with the white balance yesterday around my house and outside and I could see the difference. I have so much to learn.:goodvibes

    If you shoot in RAW you can easily fix this in post. To some extent you can still change the white balance in post. 99.9% of the time I shoot with my camera set to auto WB and is the first thing I tweak in Lr.
