    Looks like you're having fun. I like the top one of the 3 geese, or terns, or whatever they are. Might be fun to PhotoShop that into a watercolor and print it on watercolor paper.

    The first one is great. One question: Was the camera new when you got it? b/c ur sensor is dirty (i think)

    Very very nice! I especially like the one with the jet flying against the sun slightly setting in the background.

    I also liked how the sun came out in the pic. Nice job from that D40! Keep up the good work!

    I am impressed with what you took with that camera. I was debating on whether or not to get a Nikon or a Canon. I got my Canon only because I am familiar with Canon. This is just absolutely awesome for a GREAT priced camera!! Ok it's not all the camera's work. It's got to be the photographer behind it too!

    P.S. Keep having fun!!!!

    I like the first shots with the new camera

    For the four birds flying i cant help but feel like the last bird is being left out! I also like the plane/jet picture it caught my atention for some reason and good last edit on the bird it really makes the bird the main thing in the picture!

    Keep having fun!

    Too many pics to comment on

    #1 good shot
    #2 needs some heavy cropping & it will be good as well.

    The top photo is White Ibis. I think it's a great shot, too. The duck is a Wild Muscovy, I believe. I like the first shot of it; but it's cut off in the bottom shot. I love taking/viewing photos of birds. You did a nice job. Just wondering if you live in FL? We have a lot of Ibis here.
