    Default Do you think you have improved your shots over the passed year?

    It's already 2005. I would like to know for all of us in CS, after spending so much money for the gears, do you think the quality of your shots have improved, in terms of composition, exposures, image quality, etc.

    Would like you guys to be honest to yourself, as only you know yourself best!

    No body can say that he/she has perfected in his/her shots I must say, even for Henri Cartier Bresson himself!

    Yes, one can 'deprove' if he/she hasn't been shooting for a long while.

    Hmm...that's very interesting. Does it mean that you have 'deproved'? How about what your friends/relatives/clients/fellow CSers think?

    I think what he meant was he has raised his bar and expect better pictures.

    I guess photography is about style. Everyone has their own personal style. I learnt tons of different style from everyone here, not just skill to take a good photo, but the skill and technical knowledge to develop my own style.

    I don't think I have pushed my camera to the limit, and yes, sometimes I do feel out of place at concerts, where people are shooting away with their DSLRs and I'm using a prosumer, trying to stay afloat in the sea of big boys.Haha.Well, there are some shots which only a SLR can take.But hey,I'm still not satisfied with my shots so I guess Im still on the road of improvement.

    Raising of expectations would mean that one has not improved. Ya?
