    First pics posted up!

    I shot these photos while doing a little walking around downtown. Advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I like the first shot alot, it looks a little grainy, but outside of that really nice. As for the other three you might want to try some different angles to create a more interesting picture, but it will come with time
    Finally, finally a DSLR!

    Canon 30D
    28-135 IS USM

    What exactly causes the grainy look of the picture. I'm not too sure what to do about that. Thanks for the words though. Keep them coming.

    I don't mind at all. Doesn't the photo look like there is a little too much contrast though. Maybe it is just my computer screen.

    the grain (noise) can be caused by a high ISO setting...The higher the ISO, the more sensitive the sensor is to light.

    I usually start noticing grain at about 800 ISO, but sometimes you have to if there's not enough light for a good exposure. For an outdoor shot like that with a lot of sun, I'd prolly go with 200 ISO or so..

    Definately, I looked over my settings one more time and I noticed that I had left the iso at 800 from the time before. LOL. I got a little careless. Oh well.
