    Got my first "proper" camera 3 days ago, Nikon D90 and since then have been taking quite a few pics. Would love to hear your comments:

    Does that mean the other ones are so bad they are not worth commenting on? :confused:

    I know...I did take some shots of the horses coming towards me but it all looked a bit too much with the sleigh and people behind them

    in 1 the light and background are working really well, i also like her expression. the back of her head is cut off, always unfortunate.

    2, the light is flat, the left arm partly in the frame doesn't work composition wise.

    3 is an excellent subject but framed too tight on the left. the background here is dull and there's no context.

    in 4 the tilt does not work as it seldom does unless the picture is of an abstract nature and then still it should be used with care.

    Comment for #3 as well. My eye is wondering what I am missing and wants to know what is coming into the frame next. The other 3 photos certainly explain there purposes perfectly. Nicely done.

    Love the first, but it'd be better for her whole head to be in frame. The others, too, are alright.

    I like #1 except the background looks like a mattress. After looking at it the third time, I realize it's tracks in the snow, but it's distracting to me.

    I also like the fence in the snow. Interesting lines and patterns.... clean snow with shadows on one side, foot tracks on the other. It's interesting to look at.

    The others don't do anything for me. The two black horses would be a nice subject, but I don't like the tilt or composition.

    I really like the second one of the second batch (the fence). The footprints being on the other side of the fence make it look like you were trespassing...teehehehehe :) I think I'd like it even more if you couldn't see the chain link fence in the background. But I really like the geometry and the shadow in that one. snazzy! :)

    The circus tent doesn't work for me, but the others I like. I really don't know why, but I like them.
