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.

I'm no expert but if you increase the iso to say 400 or higher ( I think this is done using the little roller wheel on the 300d ) this will give more detail as the capture becomes more light sensitive. Also, tightening the aperture will give a much deeper depth of field and hence a more fuller focus. I think that's correct maybe one of the resident experts can advise.

Probably the big mistake you may be making is by not having your 300d configured to use all it's potential. I made the mistake with my 300d of not having the image quality set to Large. This is set in "Quality" on the cameras menu.
Large takes images at 6.3mpix, Medium takes at 2.8mpix and Small at 1.6mpix so make sure your camera is using it's full potential.

the contrast is not right, the sky is bright at the back maybe. it need the colour increasing maybe.

and some though when you take it. It’s boring

Ok folks.I hope i speak for the majority of us,we all like to capture a quality picture of our trophy fish....but also, i am and always have been a wannabe photographer,whilst on the bank, i like to pass the time snapping wildlife,sunset/rise,misty mornings and general scenic pictures.....i consider myself quite crap,but am very willing to learn more, i have a basic book on tips for digital photography but i think its always best to gain advice people in the know, or those who are just naturally better.
So.....a bit of a liberty i know, but im hoping this thread will benefit all forum members wishing to improve thier skills....what i wish of this thread,is that by posting a photo you have taken,and not just fishing pics please, we can say what we ( the person who took the snap) think is wrong with it, and how we would have liked it to look.
Then...the guys in the know could perhaps point out the faults, and ways in which a better shot could have been acheived.
I know theres a couple of proffessional photographers on here and i dont wish to burden them with too much as i should imagine this thread could go on for some time,and maybe even hopefully made a sticky,but there are also plenty of guys on here who take amazing snaps, and have a natural ability....the likes of mr Townley for example.
So,i hope this thread can go the distance....my intention is not for us all to bombard the forum with crappy pics of us holding carp, but any pics at all that we enjoy taking but cant get right.....hopefully this will turn out to be a very educational thread,one we can all benefit from and get involved in.
If i may get the ball rolling with a recent pic i took of the old footbridge crossing my local river.
camera used is canon eos 300d with standard 18-55 lense.in the auto focus setting.(no tripod).
Fault....to me, this picture lacks depth and clarity
Your views and tips greatly appreciated
