When I feel a lack of creativity with my photography I love to look at websites with incredible photography. It refreshes me! List some photographers that inspire you...

My friend, Nikki, takes some beautiful photos of where she lives in Wales, along with concerts and her gorgeous two cats (plus her neighbours hehe). Otherwise I just search Flickr in hope of seeing some beautiful photos and I always do!
My friends' site is here: http://www.nikki-ann.co.uk but she has most of her photos in her Flickr account.
When I'm looking for inspiration I check out Photographycorner at http://www.photographycorner.com/forum/ There are tons of talented people on this site along with lots of helpful tips and tutorials.
I'm also a huge fan of Ansel Adams and check out this site frequently: http://www.anseladams.com/ I never tire of viewing his work.

The three photographers who have inspired me the most to this point are:
John Shaw is an incredible photographer and person. I've had lots of email correspondence with John over the years. His books and other materials are awesome. http://www.johnshawphoto.com/
Nancy Rotenberg is also an incredible photographer and has soooo inspired me. Her writing is as awesome as her photography: http://www.naturaltapestries.com/ Be sure to check out the Gallery
Last but not least is Galen Rowell. Sadly he and his wife Barbara were killed in a plane crash on a return trip home in 2002. He taught me to look for "light" in my photos and I will be forever grateful.

OK, this sounds super cheesy, especially since she posted right before me -- but not knowing many "pro" photgraphers myself, I have always admired Betty Jo's Photos in her LO and Blog.

My favourite place to hang out is Fred Miranda (http://www.fredmiranda.com), there is some amazing work in the galleries there. Plus it's a forum, so I can just search for a specific subject and up come all the photos, yay!
The photographer I most admire (that I found through FM) is Sheila Smart (http://www.pbase.com/sheila), another Sydney girl - incredible PJ and landscape work!

I have to say that I never really thought anything about my pictures till I started digi scrapping and I started to realize that they could be so much better! I started seeing these layouts in the galleries with just incredible pictures and I thought "you know, I want to have pictures like that on my layouts". I am getting there, slowly! Anywho, back to the point, those layouts in the galleries that I am talking about are Tracie's (tracie in texas). I just can't help but love all her photos and it doesn't hurt that her kids are adorable! To me, her pictures just stand out and they make me want to take better pictures.
