I would be happy if you give me some advice, if you have, than a general improve my photography.

I am learning fast ....

The most growth in photographic results comes from developing your creative vision, not from camera settings, different lenses, different exposures, different filters. Choosing better subjects, if photographing outdoors: having ideal/optimum light, stronger and more appealing compositions without extraneous elements, colors that complement each other, etc. Those are facets of photography that you can't learn from one person's posts on the internet.

This is why many a person on here posts that they think their photography sucks or they don't seem to be improving anymore. That's when they've come to understand the 35mm camera system, understanding how to control depth of field, ISO, and exposure bias. Those are the easy parts of photography to learn. The harder elements are the creative ones, and it's the creative abilities that separates good photographers from average camera user and the good from the great.

Great advice and thank you for that.

From what I see most of the people here are right. I have to develop my vision and not thinking and studing again for one more time the cameras.

A question for all of you. On internet which site you think is a good resource for learning this kind of subject

I came across the http://www.betterphoto.com

site but I need your opinion. As my time is very limited i cannot go to a local school or to take other classes or workshop right now

Nikos,

If you don't have time to go on a real on location photo workshop I don't think you will so much out of online training courses. There is in my opinion no shortcuts. You need to put in a lot of time and effort to become better. It's about your vision and as suggested it can be a good idea to study arts and especially to study what photographers have done. And find you own style. If this is the HDR style so be it, but I think you will move away from this if you put more time into developing your own style by studying. So again, don't waste your money on more equipment. Spend money and time on learning and studying and go on some workshops with photographers who's style you like.
