    Hey guys, Been a while since I posted a few on here. Ever since I took back my d5000 and have been working on learning my new d90. So here are a few, I'm trying to get better at composition so here are a few of my tries.

    I like #1. I would straighten the horizon on #3. The houses in the background ruin #2 for me, but I am a weirdo. :lol: I would also maybe crop off some of the bottom of the photo in #2. :thumbup:

    #1 - I like the idea, but to me, cropping the bottom half is like cutting off feet...you know what I mean?

    #2 - I like the composition. Maybe just a tad brighter?

    #3 - For me, the weeds kill the shot. They're in the way.

    Good job straightening the horizon. :thumbup:

    The foreground is underexposed. Here's a quick edit:

    At OP: yes a lot better. :thumbup:
    At KmH: That's a bit too processed for me.

    Nice composition, however they do seem to lack the punch of some color saturation...

    Thanks everyone, again I was really just working on my composition skills. Which if I may say myself have much improved. lol Also HikinMike I know that more slanted lines supposedly display "peace" so that is what I was going for. I will try my hand at landscape and try to get some just good landscape shots. Thanks everyone.

    AliasPros, where I live right now it is completely dreary, so getting punchy colors in the "wild" is hard. I will try some PP though.

    Well the composition doesn't look bad at all to me. BTW, what made you take back the D5000?

    Great Shots. What iso did you shoot with? Lower iso sometimes help enhance the color in low light if you are trying to do so in the future.

    I felt the first two we're better overall, both in terms of composition, exposure, focus and general interestingness! infact the second one would look better with a bit of the bottom cut off?

    I think #2 has the greatest potential. It's a bit underexposed and the background is distracting...a shallower DOF would really make this one stand out I think.
