    So here are some random pictures I have taken with my Canon 40D. I used the stock 28 – 135 mm lens with a UV filter and in some cases a ND4 and/ or Polarizer filer. In some cases I also maximized the contrast in the camera’s menu and in other cases I added a color shift. So what do you all think? The first 20 or so pictures were a bit more serious in nature and I specifically tried to make those look as good as possible. The remaining pictures were just pictures I found to be interesting.

    Way too many - this place isn't Flickr. Try and keep it to about 3 to 5 maximum and number them. If you have a definite theme with the photos then maybe more is acceptable but IMO not more than 10.

    If you keep the number of photos down and number them then more people will be inclined to comment. In fact I'd suggest editing this post so that you've only posted the pics that you really want C&C on.

    Well, one of the first things any newcomer to photography needs to learn early on is how to make choices - and how to distinguish the good from the bad. Choose carefully, show only little to begin with, and THINK before you post. To my mind, it is almost offensive to dump the whole lot of photos you've taken on us for something like comments or even critique.
    To me it expresses a thorough carelessness with which you're approaching your new pasttime. If you cared about it more, you'd have decided more carefully on what to show and what NOT to show.
    Sorry for being so brusque to a newcomer, but threads like this are quite annoying.

    I agree with previous posters: too many pictures to give C&C. One general comment though: in landscape photography it is usually better to get the horizon, well, horizontal. You can achieve this easily with a bubble level fitted to the hot shoe and with the camera mounted on a tripod (the tripod will also avoid blur from camera shake, which can be seen in some of your pictures

    Some are good, some are dark, some are too light, some have composition issues, some have great colours, some are out of focus / soft focus, some should have been wider, some can be cropped.

    Basically, yeah, too many to comment on. Pick 3-4 that YOU think are you best and throw those up.
