Once I got home to the UK and uploaded all my shots up to the pc I could see that the shots, and there were loads, looked really bland and kind of washed out. They are fairly uninspiring and fall into the category of "holiday snaps" rather than any photographic outcome. I was a bit disappointed!!
I am aware that as far as composition goes I was limited in that I couldn't move the boat or whatever so had to work with what I got.
So what did I learn? Well, I need to work on using the camera settings properly to work with the conditions I find myself in and then also work on understanding how to improve things within editing software, so as suggested, I shall spend some time reading up and watching some tutorials on YouTube!!
As always, would love your thoughts...
