    Photography tip #1
    The Rule of Thirds

    the center of a picture is usually not a confortable restingplace for the eye. view your picture with an imaginary grid layed out and try to place the subject near one of the intersecting lines. this will lead the viewer's wye through the image, creating a more powerful picture.

    Photography tip #2
    Zooming During long exposure

    Photos of certain lighted objects can be pleasant to look at, however, these photos can be made more interesting by adjusting the zoom during periods of long exposure.

    viewers choice, the BMW 507 as presented in the garden of Villa d'Este earlier this year. I like the off-centre one better, but most photos were taken in the second

    photographing a moving car should be done by panning, but what if the car comes towards you?

    Then you should side-step.

    Did you do that with the A40? I was not aware one could zoom during an exposure.

    I really can't give many tips on photography, as it's really just tweaking around, but I can give you this much. Try not to put the horizon line through the middle of the photograph-it looks amateur and not well thought out. Concentrate on the ground or sky, not typically both. (There are exceptions, of course.)

    1=Meh
    2=Good
    3=Also Good

    (As an added bonus with using this type of framing, you can get objects near the edge of the photo to lean out-a charecteristic which can often be found in professional shots, but not 'tourist' shots.)
