    Short intro: My interest in photography started strangely enough with my iPhone. Within a few months I decided to buy a dSLR learn how to shoot better photographs. I've had the dSLR for a month now, I'm learning the manual modes and exposure, etc. Here are 3 pics that I thought looked good, hoping to hear your C&C!

    1. Taken this morning. I didn't have any specific goals with this shot, just wanted to capture the water drops.

    2. Taken a few days ago. I'm pleased with the pic and only did some minor editing but I'm concerned that it looks "fake"

    3. Also taken a few days ago. I can't pinpoint why, but I really like this photo.

    I will try to learn from all C&C

    Thanks

    on flickr, click your picture, click all sizes, scroll down and see two text box post options. Copy and paste the bottom one.

    With how the main limbs branch off from the trunks of the trees in the second picture, it seems to suggest they are supporting those clouds right behind them. I like it.

    And the screen door water patterns in the third image depict a face looking to the right, and an alien/skull. Both are near the bottom of the screen, see if you can see what I see. Maybe I just have an overactive imagination.

    #1 I like the color. Looks like a fine photo to me.

    #3 Reminds me of something out of a "Matrix" movie. I also see the faces The Shoe is seeing but also see another in the upper right corner :lol:

    I like number 3 the most. I would maybe crop out the dark vertical bar on the right, then "skew" it so the verticals are straight. Just a compositional thing IMO. Nice!

    The first one looks good. Maybe a bit soft, but it's not too bad.

    Don't care for the second at all. Looks like a snapshot IMO.

    The third shot is excellent!!!

    I really like all 3!

    The second one is my favorite, but the third definitely has something cool about it.

    And I *do* see the Alien at the bottom lol
