I currently have 3 active photos here and i am wondering what other people think about them. I know they are not that good (haven't been doing it for a long time and that my equipment is bad), but still i want some critiques and ideas about my photos.

Thanks

The view of the Fjord is my favorite, the colors are very nice with the natural lighting and the composition and perspective is good. There are also a wide variety of textures clearly visible, which is appealing to me.

I don't know if you live in Norway or just visit, but it seems you have an opportunity to get some gorgeous shots of things unique to that landscape.

Try to think of some ideas that shots of the landscape might represent - for example some steep fjord wallls representing danger, or some isolated wintry spot representing purity or solitude.

The castle shot is nice, but perhaps some close ups of parts of it might work for shapes, textures or some metaphorical uses.

You don't say much about where your interests (as a photographer) lie, but if you can find some intersection between things that can be used as stock (for advertising, web sites, etc) and something you find inherently interesting, you should be able to build your portfolio.

And your ratio of downloads to uploads (2:1) is great!

I like the house on the fjord one best as well.

One comment that I'd like to make (and should take to heart myself ) is that you should leave some room for copy in your shots. The castle shot is nice, but it would be much more useful it you left a bit more sky in so that a designer can add words easily.

You must be doing something right, they have all been downloaded at least once. If you have some more, I think you should upload them.
