More pictures of Kenting

We had to stop to get this picture. The sea was just beautiful this day.

The structure on the right is called a "pillbox." It was built by the Japanese during their occupation of Taiwan. My husband has been in this one, and he was struck by how much a person could see while inside.

This was some fun I had with the macro setting. My daughter caught glimpse of this little starfish on the seahorse exhibit. I have a ton of pictures of the seahorses, because they are just fascinating, but this was too cute.

A man-made barrier to help prevent erosion.

Beautiful pictures. You're getting really good at this!

I love these! I really like the first one and the last one. I would have really liked to seen that pillbox up close!

Notice on that last picture you don't have anything centered. The subject falls into the thirds of the picture and therefore follows the "rule of thirds" method of photo composition. Very nice!

You are doing good at this and the best way to learn is just to take a lot of pictures and look at each one critically. We had a photographer tell us that we should try to take at least a hundred pictures a weekend and look at your results.

Hope you don't mind the "lesson" I know those lessons have helped me.

Take care and have fun shooting those pictures!

No! Please critique! I welcome your insights!

My husband has some pictures of that pillbox up close. He went in it, but on a different trip. This time this was as close as my little camera would allow. I'll try to find it and post it, though. He has a SpongeBob Squarepants shirt on. ha!

Enjoy your vacation, and thanks again!

I will give pointers along the way. I think you have a lot of talent and I am so excited about photography that I want everyone else to be too!

If you guys ever make it back to Springfield we will need to get together. Maybe we can introduce you to our local camera club!

Take care.
