    I am still new to the photography scene (bought my first camera in June). I recently purchased a NEX 5r due to the tail period I was using it as a demo I loved it. All of my photos are shot with the standard lens with no flash. Hopefully buying some off camera flashes soon but let me know what you think of my work so far!

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I don't really do much night shooting if I'm honest so...

    Thank you, All of my work by the way is very lightly edited. I am not a fan when someone goes all crazy in photoshop so a lot of my work is only white balanced before posting. Thank you guys for the compliments but if there is anything that you see that maybe could be altered or some tips, I enjoy constructive criticism as long as you can provide a way for me to fix it.

    Thanks Dave ;) One of my favs too...


    ...but if I'm being honest, I didn't took that one - a guy shot it with his big bulky DSLR ( :p ) (probably a photographer) at a local car show/gtg last year :)

    Glad to see a fellow Cypriot around TalkNex.
    Been a while since I last visited the forum and while not much have changed, I can see that many actives. Great source for inspiration.
    I like the two golf 4's head to head and also the corrado overviewing Limassol

    Cheers

    Hi cagrafton, I like the fourth shot a lot. It has a good composition with great use of focus and out-of-focus areas, plus the juxtaposition of the front and rear of the two cars. It is good photography!
