    Got my D90 in November and am really enjoying myself! I like the results I'm getting so far, but would love some feedback. Thanks for your time.

    Nice work. Number 1 is my favorite.

    Thanks Mark! I like #1 as well. Took a few shots at different angles. Looking at the grass at 100% is very cool and I tried some closer crops, but I feel like I lose some context when I crop it that takes away from what I like about the wider shot.

    Example:

    I can't tell what's better. Maybe leave well enough alone.

    (no pun intended :er:)

    Great shots, you definitely have the technical side of things nailed. Colour, focus and exposure (except #4) are all very good.

    Is that the kit lens? Those pics are so sharp I'm trying to get that sharpness.

    Hi - thanks for the comments! Much appreciated!

    Lenses as follows:

    1. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    2. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    3. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    4. 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6 (kit lens)

    5. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    6. 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6 (kit lens)

    7. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    8. 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1

    The kit lens is very sharp, but slow. I like it a lot so long as I'm shooting under the right conditions and I'm not going for bokeh.

    Every lens I have has given me enough very sharp shots to know that when I'm soft, it's my fault.

    Here's a couple more using the kit lens in case you want some more examples:

    You can get the VR1 used for $1600. I got mine new for just under $1900.
    The VR2 version is $2300.

    It's a nice lens. It's heavy and big though. No stealth street photography with that sucker.
    You also need to be pretty far away to lock focus. It's not a walk around lens and I do find myself wanting to leave it out of the bag at times.

    First time I can say this, but, it was a pleasure looking through all 8 photos.

    Well done!
