    I am currently deployed in Afghanistan, and these are the pictures I took when I arrived with my Nikon D60 that my husband bought for me. Since being deployed, I have spent my spare time reading everything I can on Digital Photography. These pictures have not been edited, and they were taken in Auto because I had no idea what I was doing ;) we all have to start some where.

    it took 4 replies for someone to say!!!

    anyways,

    Anyone can take images in auto mode so I wont critique the images, however I will critique your bravery to carry a $800 camera into a war zone!

    And I will comment on the scenes

    That orange sky is beautiful!
    You have the composition down
    and damnnnn!!! That Apache is damn sexy.

    Look at those rockets and turret gun!

    AS ^ said

    Well done on your service (I will sound a prick saying this but I understand you risk your lifes.)
    However, Everyone should be congradulated on whaterver work they do, Anyone who works and is contributing to society is good. (uh technically)
    the main difference being, your job is harder!

    great pics!

    My only suggestion would to be include subjects, to the extent that you can, that scream "Afghanistan". That is, the beautiful scenics are nice - - but could be from anywhere. It would be very interesting to get pics from you of Afghanistan from your perspective - - people, cultural, etc.

    And I thank you very much for your brave service.

    I love 4 and 5. The others are cool but they dont generate as much of a story for me. Plus i was really expecting pictures that stood out as "Afghanistan" so those did it most for me. 4 is my favorite.
