Gazzer, you need this link if you don't have a manual for your camera: 300d Manual Link, it can be a bit slow so stick with it.

Settings for shooting start at page 47.
It is essential that your camera is configured to use all it's potential. Section 1 on page 48 explains how to reconfigure the cameras settings. Set it to Large, 6.3mpix.

Sorry to keep banging on about this but it is vital you do this otherwise, with all the help and tinkering around in the world, your camera will only be looking at life through partly closed eyes.

Right ,thanks lads,looks like this thread is gonna be a winner
I have just looked at my camera and i think i used it in the basic setting on autofocus ,which i beleive sets the iso at 100.now i presume this was not adequate enough for the given light conditions which were poor, or quite dull.i have never used the creative modes yet so i guess this is where i reset the iso to the conditions on the day....i have these options

The stag was at Domaine de Boux, by the end of the week we were feeding him by hand, if you shook a box of cereal he would come charging up to the fence

Adding a bit more information would help to point out little changes that could have been made to improve the shot. No idea how to get the EXIF data on a Windows thing but if someone could pop it in the thread we could start getting the information with the pics.

If this is to be a critique thread it would really help if the photo was accompanied by a little more information. Camera, lens, ISO, aperture and shutter speed or full EXIF data if you can.

Photography is basically 'painting with light'.

Well put Stace.

If you look at any great image it's generally great because of the light be it too much, loads of shadows or even hardly any light at all. The colour of the light is also very important.
The light at this time of the year is usually always cold (blue) even though it might not appear blue to the eye.

There isn't much light in and around the bridge area so you'll always struggle to get good strong depth in that area. Compare that to the light sky in the background and the camera is working pretty hard to maintain an overall good exposure.

Photography is basically 'painting with light'.

A subject may appear to be interesting but the light at that time might not enable you to capture in it's full glory.

The grass in the foreground is a good starting point - photos without foreground are boring.

I'd retake the picture but at different times of the day. Early morning and early evening make the best times for landscape photography as the shadows lengthen and you have more of a glow effect. Stick with the same composition, just practise with the light.

I've took the same photo over 20 times before to get the right colours, I'm sure others have done many more. Landscape photography requires unrivalled patience.
