I saw a similar problem on another thread. One thing that seems to get me is that you are looking for good pictures, not finding them. Theres one picture in particular that gets me, and its the one where you tilted the camera and said you had tea with the Queen. Sure, it looks like a good shot at first, but then I look again and it's just mechanical.  If there were no cars on the road, or people, and there was a sunset to the left, I think it would be a good shot coming off of the ground.

I think one thing that makes people think they get good shots is that they have a good camera with a lot of pixels. Getting a good camera doesn't mean you will get good shots. The professional photographers, you could give them a 100x200 pixel camera and they would put anyone to shame.
Why?
Because, they find good pictures and know how its going to look. They perceive with their mind before the perceive with their eyes. They don't let their pictures be mechanical.

That being said, I really like the one with the sunset and the ferris wheel. That's an interesting composition.
Still confused? Then perhaps this will enlighten you!

Really? I'd say I was the opposite. I'm really bad at planning on pictures and usually just take whatever I can given an opportunity (which does, I think, disadvantage me).

Yeah, I just quickly took that picture when crossing the road. It wasn't intended to be a good picture by any means. I totally agree that it needs less cars and people obstructing it.

That's true. I've always been interested in how people--photographers, mainly--perceive things about the world that no-one else seems to see. My friend, who's a much better photographer than me, is able to observe things that you would just walk by every day without even thinking, and will capture and highlight the beauty in it.               


That being said, I really like the one with the sunset and the ferris wheel. That's an interesting composition.
Thank you.

I really like all this stuff! I like how really it doesn't seem that you are focusing on composistion, but you're just taking simple pictures of animals.

The first picture of that blue and yellow bird is hilarious. It's just like >_>

These look great! The animals in the pictures look really natural and not like you were forcing a certain angle. Good job!
