First off, try turning off the camera's 'date stamping' feature. That's just annoying.

Next, I noticed your compositions (at least these four) are all centered. Try experimenting with more 'dynamic' compositions - read up on the 'rule of thirds' or the 'golden mean'.

HTH!

I think I saw these earlier posted in a gallery in some photo list. Alistair is right, you can try *not* centering the subject for a change and see how that works with you.

The photo of the church is quite striking and has good exposure. I like the deep blue of the sky amd the whiteness of the clouds and the church. It almost looks like you used a polarizing filiter on the lens. What did you do , or did you just get lucky? hehe

The date stamping feature is that thing that puts that ugly date on all your shots.

A static something represents something that's solid and fixed. A dynamic anything connotes tension and movement.

Here's a link on the rule of thirds (straight from the first result given by Google). Here's the second link in Google's search results.

Here's a link to the Golden Mean in Art.

That's the Baguio Catholic Cathedral. The Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 has Carl Zeiss lens, I believe.

I took pictures of the Baguio Cathedral with a P&S 2 years ago and I just found out now that I scanned the wrong side of the negatives -- flipped! (see below)  :oops:

No problem with flipping scanned digital images! Just use Photoshop to correct it :)

BTW, can Photoshop reduce noise?

To a certain extent. 'Stock' filters and plugins ('Despeckle', etc.) can do quite a bit of clean up if you know how to use them properly. I also remember some pre-recorded actions that reduce noise for specific camera models. Otherwise, there are third party, mostly commercial plugins for noise reduction.

Despeckle? So, that's the one!

Thanks!  :)

medyo blurred ng konti yung sa girl. sayang pretty pa naman sya. dapat kapag ganun kaganda yung kukunan mo, medyo bilisan mo yung shutter speed mo tapos mas malaking lens opening (ng konte). or gamit ka ng tripod. baka gumagalaw yung kamay mo eh.
Hindi dapat nakakapagod mag-Philmusic.
