It's the cameraman, not the camera.

Here's my personal style: when I try to take/create a picture, what I try to do are two things. One, I try to minimize the negatives. The second is after taking out as many negatives as I can, I make sure there's atleast (and often, at most) one positive. So in the end, the picture has nothing bad, and one good thing. Therefore, it is a good picture.

Photoshopping helps remove the bad things. It CANNOT put anything good in.

An SLR does not give you good pictures. It does not even give you better pictures. You take a bad picture with an expensive dSLR, you just get a really sharp image of a bad picture. And that's onyl if you know how to use it. Too often someone looks at a picture they like and think that all you do is point the camera in the general direction of the subject, press the shutter button, and presto, magic pictures! They don't realize all the extra effort in just PRE-processing, where you look at the area, and fix all the things wrong, whether it be a distracting leaf at the feet of the statue or whatever. Sometimes it can be something like waiting for the perfect time of day when the shadows hit the subject just right, so you have to come back or wait there for a few hours. THEN, you frame the image, calculate the settings you want, and take many MANY pictures with minute differences, such as angle, exposure, etc. THEN, you post-process, correcting all the stuff you still ended up messing up. But like I said, it's all useless if you're taking a crap picture to begin with.

Ansel Adams said it best (and I don't even like Ansel Adams' stuff), "There's nothing worse than a sharp picture of a fuzzy idea."

wow~ thanks for the advice AznHombre~ guess i'll have to work on my concepts before anything else :)

but i was actually refering to the sharpness of your pics.. i was trying to use photoshop to get your sharpness.. i think you misunderstood and thought i was trying to get the quality of your pics in general~ lol ofcourse i know that i won't be able to turn my crappy pics into your good composition, angle, etc. pics~ i was only refering to the sharpness and how your pics have much less noise. Therefore, that was why i was refering to your lens :%

well since i love this topic i guess i will post more pics :D
the first batch are pics that have been altered (color corrected and stuff)
and the second batch are like originally shot pics but i haven't cropped them. any suggestions to make them better?

i really like the colors in the two last pics by trixy, the golden colors makes the red emerald (jewelry) stand out!
the landscape pics by eighty-six are very nice, the composition is simple which is what i like about it.
silentwishes pics are nice because i like the painted background wall, it makes some of the pics look surreal.
the pics with the s700 is interesting, camera phones have actually improved haha.
my last question before the pics come out, does aznhombre study photography or something? he seems to know a lot about photos

and the rest. the last one was taken in an underground concert and handheld so don't get distracted by it i guess. i just don't favour using flash in concerts because i believe using the concert lights will give the viewer more of a feel of whats going on in the event
