My wife has just started getting into photography and took loads of photos whilst on holiday.

I would like to post some of them here so that hopefully you guys can give her some feedback on them.

Here are a few to get started with

It's a Sony A200 some of the photos were using the 18-70mm kit lens and some were with the newly purchased 50mm f1.8 lens.

i think you did really well for low light and moving objects- not easy. what settings are you using? i like shooting in AV mostly and am a bit out of my comfort zone in TV - i dabble with manual occasionally still :unsure:

They are all shot in manual mode.

The first 3 were all set to 1/250 f5.6 ISO 100 (18-70mm kit lens)
The 4th is 1/160 f1.8 ISO 100 (50mm f1.8 prime lens)
The last one is 1/100 f4.5 ISO 1600 (75-300mm kit lens)

I particularly like the first and final shots. The energy in the first, with the larger orca's head entering the water with the smaller orca alongside (showing dimension and size) really appeal to me. Additionally, I like the texture captured in the background.

The last two I like for much the same reason, clarity of detail and energy. :yes:

I wish I could take such lovely shots! Thank you for sharing them with us.

My favourite is the middle one, it looks quite graceful which is odd for a HUGE whale :yes: Your wife certainly has talent :yes:

I like the one with the whale falling back and you can see his tummy! Very nice shots. Moving objects/people/animals are difficult to shoot.

I love the 1st, 2nd and 3rd the best - i think the 2nd looks fun! But then i love the last two as well so I'm not much help there!

for the 4th I would probably go with a faster shutter speed and up the ISO,(was it in the afternoon?) also go for a smaller aperture, when i first got the nifty fifty i shot with it wide open all the time because i wanted to take advantage of the large aperture but learnt that the sweet spot of a lens is about 2 stops lower so you get sharper shots, it gives you a bigger depth of field too so that more stuff is in focus. That's my fourpenneth anyway- hope you don't mind :thumbsup:
