Light Room is nice and easy to learn. As regards downloading it, I have no idea. You can get a trial version direct from the Adobe website though. I bought mine from B&H.

jazooon I hate Photoshop with avengeance. I am a photographer not an artist. I use Adobe Lightroom for archiving and minor corrections. In one of my shots I have desaturated the colour to produce a B&W image, and in all the rest I expect that I adjusted the exposure, but other than that, these pictures are as I saw them through the viewfinder.

timebandit are you doing some post processing in those photos?

Sure MJ you can count on it. And when are you going to come and model for me?

By mjamille28• 12 years 1 month ago.
mjamille28

TB, when that happens, you'll give me an autographed copy of one of your shots ok? ;)

By timebandit• 12 years 1 month ago.

nomerci thank you for your praise. I would be an artist if I could paint, and this is the next best thing, so photography it is for me ;)

By timebandit• 12 years 1 month ago.

lol georgia. My boy is 21 and yes he is single. He is also back in the UK and thus... not much use to you ;)

By georgia_• 12 years 1 month ago.

this is a serious question... how old is your son?! is he single? ;)

By nomerci• 12 years 1 month ago.
nomerci

timebandit, those are exceptionally nice photographs. IMHO the praise is most definitely warranted.

And I do have a good eye for colour and composition, as I am an artist myself, albeit I do not do photography.

By anonymous• 12 years 1 month ago.

Nice shots bro.I wish that I can learn that skills too.

By mjamille28• 12 years 1 month ago.

well, I for one am impressed about the images you posted.. not pulling your leg or something, it was an honest compliment..

By snessy• 12 years 1 month ago.

TB...your photographs are better than most posted on QL :-)

In fact, I think this thread should've made it to the homepage...

By timebandit• 12 years 1 month ago.

Thing is MJ I have never had compliments about my photography like this before. Are they really worthy of some of the comments left by people above? I am genuinely surprised by the whole thing.

By mjamille28• 12 years 1 month ago.

By timebandit• 12 years 1 month ago.

snessy you have just made me blush

nomad_08 you are quite right composition is one of the key ingredients of photography, and without putting too much thought into it, one of the few that technology cannot help you with.

By nomad_08• 12 years 1 month ago.
nomad_08

TB you forgot to mention 'composition' which played a great deal in making your pictures look interesting to look at :-)

By snessy• 12 years 1 month ago.

Oh TB, I have no idea what you're banging on about, but I think I may have just fallen in love with you a little :-)

By timebandit• 12 years 1 month ago.

There is no photoshoping performed on my images as I don't believe in using it. Over use of Photoshop stops being photography and starts becoming art.

However I do use Adobe Lightroom to adjust exposure and crop.

I use Cokin filters on the front of my lens to create some effects at the time of capturing the image which is accepted in true photography. I use a star burst filter on some of the night shots, and a graduated ND filter for shots like the Corniche Sunrise. A polarizing filter brings out the blues in the Souq shots.

Good morning everyone ;)

Ok my camera is a Sony Alpha a350 which I purchased nearly two and a half years ago for £490 (QR 2797) with a kit 18 - 70mm lens.

The locations are:-

1) West Bay

2) Aspire Gardens

3) Near the Wholesale Market

4) Aspire Torch

5) Souq Waqif

6) Souq Waqif

7) West Bay

8) Souq Waqif

9) Souq Waqif

10) West Bay

11) West Bay

12) West Bay shot from the road leading from Airforce R/A to Barwa village

13) Emiri Diwan

14) Sheriton Hotel

15) Qatar Islamic Cultural Center

16) The Pearl near Souq Waqif

17) The Pearl near Souq Waqif

18) Sharq Village

19) The island (don't know it's name) just off the Corniche

20) West Bay

Snessy thank yo so much for the compliment regarding my boy ;)

And thank you everyone else for your kind words. Photography is something I really enjoy, but my camera is a cheap one, and my accessories are all on a very tight budget. Believe me when I say that anyone with a nudge in the right direction could have taken these shots. But you will not be able to snap them if you leave your camera at home. Carry your camera and set time aside to go and look for the shots.

Anyone wanting the settings for the above images can checkout my Flickr account that gives all the details for each image as wells as showing on a map the exact location the images's were taken from.
