    Last week I finally had enough money to pay half and half my dSLR. So there was a sale at bestbuy and we went and bought the Nikon d3000 with the 18-55mm VR lens. I was extremely happy and got a few not bad shots I would like some critique on. I had an old pentax film SLR before. It did the job but I like to take ALOT of pictures so I needed digital. Here are a few pictures I would like critique on please :). PS I only have a 55mm lens which makes close ups extremely difficult but I am so happy with what I have I dont really care lol

    1- dont like how you cut the left most flower. The blade of grass on the right is a bit odd, alot of distracting background. Colours are nice

    2- dont like how the shoe is cut, the angle is odd as well and the foot without a shoe is, uh, unnecessary

    3- interesting angle and nice colours, nice dof. looks a tad out of focus though

    4- too low of an angle, not enough player emotion, cut off the coach, should be zoomed in more
