Hi Vinay,
I like the concept of the second shot, though I think it's difficult to tell the quality due to the file being a gif. When processing... I'd highly suggest converting to jpg format for posting online, since the color and smoothness would do more justice to your shots.

The background is way too busy in the first image. The main subject is too far away and the hot spot draws your eye away from the subject. The eye will always be drawn to the brightest part of the image. Major cropping will help this image a lot. The colors are nice.

The concept of the second image is very nice. I feel it would be stronger with either the branches or the pipes, but not both. I like it now, but just feel that little change would make it better. I like the tone of this image a lot. Nicely done.

Hi Vinay,
There are lots of free photo editing software that allows you to re-size your shots. Be sure and "save as" a copy so you won't destroy your original files. Generally, for web, it's best to convert to sRGB for proper color space, at a size of 800 pixel wide in jpg... and bring the file size down to around 200kb for posting. Gif has an extremely limited color space and makes images look blotchy. If you can't find what you need using Google, email me and I'll find links to more information.

I also agree with Shadowfixer, isolating the primary subject by removing distractions when composing would help improve. Keep shooting, and have fun.

good day Vinay- try PICASA 3 by google . it's a free software program that allows you to resize your pix in the EXPORT part of the editing program, very easy to use software. Hope this helps, Rob

If you have CS5 you dont need a seperate resizer as there is one in the images drop down menu.

Also for web, you don't need much more then 72 DPI. You make these adjustments under Image; Image Size. You can also use the Save for Web and Devices (under File).

No matter how fast I go, there's always someone slower in front of me.
