How do you guys take such good pics?

I'm an amateur photographer, and when i look at the pics on this website, i'm blown away. Do these require any special lenses or techniques? If anyone could, could you share your equipment list with me?

Well, with the little photography that i have done:
for skys i usually use the polarizing filter, this tends to make the blue's much deeper,
i have a Cannon Digital Rebel EOS 6.3megapixal digital camera, and it has various modes, ie "closeup" "night" "landscape",etc
and most importantly i have photoshop CS 8.0 with photoshop you can make just about any picture look like it is worth a million dollars, with all the corrective features that it is capiable of, so there you go..... you might want to consult +ppigeon and +camerahound and yenom, as they have far superior skills than mine.....

I believe a good photo is 80% luck and 20% skill. ;)

80% luck for being at the right place at the right time.
20% skill for knowing how to take the photo correctly.

Seriously now, I don't do anything special (that is if my works can be considered as good). It just takes practice.

I agree with Crusader. My photos are taken with sub-$100 cameras, one a 35mm zoom and the other a 3-megapixel digital compact. :c)

The work of art may have a moral effect, but to demand moral purpose from an artist is to make him ruin his work. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - 1832)

The more pictures you take the better chance you have of getting a good picture. =)

Just treat the world as if you've never seen it before. and capture every thing you think is amassing. otherwise be a kid and play.

Art its self is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

I agree totally with Clayton. :) Thats excactly what I do. The beautiful thing is that so many things are amazing when you look on the world in that way. ^_^ But his last point is the most important.

There are no cases or happenings in the world.There are just "viewpoints".Reflect your own through your viewpoint.But if you dont have an interesting or good or whatever viewpoint then with a good equipment you'll just make a common shot clearer.Thats it.
So i suppose "which i am very unexperienced in photographing" its no matter of equipment if you are not taking professional shots or if you have a 1964 Kodak machine.Any machine can get great results co-operating with your sense of Artistry.. ;)
