    Sorry, but I forgot to add that next year I'll be attending college at Sheridan in Oakville, Ontario to pursue a diploma in photography. And I've been taking photography right through high school (5th year now - went back to improve marks).
    Not sure if that makes a difference, but it's just a bit more information. :)

    Thank you for considering me btw.

    the crew likes your photos a lot and can clearly see you know your stuff.

    the issue is that we need active members and you have not reached the required amount to even join a crew on the site.

    get your activity up to 150 and your in ;)
    its easy to reach 150. i suggest a lot of CnC and posting your work in the photography section

    see you soon.

    @nanSTA, I took this with the following settings:
    Shutter Speed: 13/1 second (13 seconds)
    F Number: F/11.0
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    ISO Speed: 400

    I shot this one in "M" mode on the "BULB" shutter speed. :)

    I'd almost wonder how that would look with longer SS and closed down aperture. Would make the lights look more starry, potentially directing the eye more with the flow of traffic. Does you lens go down to F22? If not, should still be able to go down one more stop... Then again, it could cause the car lights to be too transparent. Dunno, I'll have to do one of these shots myself.

    I'll have to see if I can find the time to critique your stuff in the photo section :). Been too busy to give much in the way of advice :(

    At f/22 your camera will not pick up enough light from the cars passing by IMO. I'm surprised he got as much as he did at f/11.


    *I will be posting an application in here when I get 150 posts... It's been a while since I joined this site.. D:

    Really? Maybe I'll test this out, since the freeway will soon be pretty much in my backyard :)

    We eagerly await your application, since we need new blood :)

    THREE pictures that you manipulated(preferably pics you took)(direct links, NOT DA LINKS)(please state whether you took the pic or not):
    All three of the pics above, I did some minor color correcting, cropping, etc. nothing major, but theyre all fixed a tiny bit. but heres three more
    1. http://fc04.deviantart.com/fs48/f/2009/194...M_by_flipn7.jpg (coloring, levels, noise reduction)
    2. http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs48/f/2009/194...d_by_flipn7.jpg (Removal of a blue store to the right near the car, the threw the picture off, colors, levels, noise)
    3. http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs47/f/2009/194...h_by_flipn7.jpg (lighting)

    Your photography equipment: I dont exactly have a whole lot yet, due to the reasons stated before.. but:
    • Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
      Kit Lens (18-55mm)
      EF 50mm
      Tripod
    Sometimes, for practice I shoot with my friends Nikon D70s, with a wide variety of lenses.
