    Hi everyone,
    I got me a D40 for christmas. Finally uploaded some pics i've taken recently. These are some of my very first. Im still learning the camera. I love this hobby, plan on getting a new lens (55-200mm) for my birthday (march) so from now until then i'll be playing around with settings and reading up on things.

    Anyway, here they are!! C&C are always welcome!!


    Some PS fun with this one:)

    Hey Kleetz,
    How did you get that vignetting on the third one? These look really good to me.

    Thanks for sharing.

    DadOf2; First off, thanks for the comment. That third one was done with a macro lens and some focus! Thats it!

    Coldow91; Thanks for the comment, greatly appreciated! Hows that 55-200mm lens working out for you? I'm going to end up getting one when my birthday rolls around...want to know what others think about it. Especially the VR feature. Let me know...

    Thanks!!!

    Hey Kleetz,
    For the last one; Try horizontal flip. Just a thought...

    the 55-200mm vr is a great lens, the VR really helps when shooting at the longer focal lengths and it is pretty much needed if you plan on hand holding your shots on anything but sunny days. For the price you just can't beat what you get.

    Personally I think that I am going to sell mine soon (when's your birthday? ;) ) because I am more into wide angle and landscape photography and I don't use this lens much, but when I have it has been great!!


    If you want an example picture there is one here http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1077744#post1077744 taken at 55mm
