    So, I am fairly new to photography. I've had an old Olympus digital camera for a few years (2 megapixel) and just love taking pictures.

    After a while...I longed for more. So...I spent far more than I ever should have on a digital SLR. The very next day I took that Nikon D50 to the local Rose Garden and fiddled around. This was about 2 weeks ago now...and each day that passes I am more and more hooked on this photography thing!

    In any case...here are the results from that day's trip:

    Hallo Lee, and welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    I am sure you will enjoy yourself here!
    And that D50 definitely is not wasted on you! Wow. Quite to the contrary, I should say. You really know what you are doing when you use it, I think. You have an idea in your head and have the means to put that into practise, by playing with the DOF (depth of field), for example, and composition. I really like the first two of your photos here!!!

    Many thanks!

    I feel I have so much to learn. As of right now...sometimes I have to take 5 or 6 shots just to get the exposure right. I'm sure that comes with time.
