Tolyk's Gallery

Welcome to my gallery. In here you'll find images from when I first started exploring digital photography, to some of my more current work.

Here are my favourite images I've taken. These are also posted later on in the thread, but wanted to alter the first post to reflect my current ability. Please feel free to leave critiques, and hopefully you enjoy my imagery.

Tol

The Canon digital rebel XT, also known as the 350d. I picked it as it works with all the lenses I already had, and I liked how it sat in my hand.

Love the pics. The fireworks one is awesome.

Gotta ask where was this one taken? I love derbies and haven't seen one in years.

Looking forward to seeing more pics.

That derby is hosted every year here in Petawawa, at our Civic Center I didn't have a very good vantage point as the friend I went with held me up considerably so the place was packed by the time we got there. I would've prefered a higher vantage, ended up having one of the lowest ones and most of my shots had shrubs protruding into the view..

Gotta hate friends that make you late........we have ones like that. Where we used to live they had one every year and if we had late friends we would be like "we'll meet you there" because if you weren't there at least an hour early you couldn't see squat.

Here's one I took this morning while on vacation Going to try and capture it again tomorrow morning, slightly different take on it though. Don't like the perspective I got with the 50mm lens.

Very peaceful place.........I think I could hang out there for a while.

Passing on the friends pets pics though - not my type of creatures......thank you for listing what they were so I didn't have to open them to see.

Glad you had fun snapping pics definite improvement over last years

You are a nice fella for labelling what the pets were.
too bad they are seen in the light they are...
I love them just as much as a mammal lover enjoys those.

I wish we had more time but Pixie takes priority
