    The second the battery finished charging, i went to test her out! LOVE IT!!! i didn't even have time to familiarize myself with many features and options as it was getting dark. mostly changed the ISO accordingly and used Program mode to change up the exposures a little. not all of them came out great but i was pretty happy. now i have to learn about everything the camera can do!

    What do you think???

    Too many pictures to do individual C&C on, but they all seem slightly underexposed to me. Most of the images aren't doing anything for me...just looks like you were playing with a new camera.

    Ya, i was messing around. just excited to post my first pics :) funny you mention underexposed because some of the other ones i didn't post were overexposed, so i need to work on getting familiar the exposure characteristics of the camera.

    I'm on my work laptop, so I can't comment on the exposure. I'm having a difficult time adjusting my screen, especially since I switch from the LCD to plugging in a junk CRT at work constantly....

    The composition of the last shot is nice. I like it. It may be the typical composition you would see an image of a car as, but you did it very well.

    All of them are underexposed and blurry. I'm guessing both are caused by shooting handheld when it's getting dark. Get a tripod or better light because (no offense intended) but those look like they were shot with a point and shoot.

    ya, pretty much all pics were shot at 800-1600 ISO. and a few were at 3200 ISO so i didn't have to use a tripod. i have a tripod. was just in too much of a hurry and excited to test out the camera :)

    they would have definitely come out much cleaner had i used a tripod and a lower ISO.

    I'd suggest taking the best 2-3 max of your pictures and posting them up for C&C and make sure to number them for easy reference when C&C is given.

    As for the pics themselves, watch out for your backgrounds. You have a few in there were the background is a bit distracting to the image. Not sure which photo # it is, but there is one that has a pole sticking out from the car. :)
