    Shot with my Nikon d40, kit 18-55mm lens that i got last week. I'm getting hooked on photography and this website is awesome.

    C&C? I know it's nothing too interesting, but longboarding is one of my passions so I like winding paths and stuff like that haha

    Not a bad shot at all. If it were mine, I would crop off some of the sky, just above the clouds.

    Nice shot Greg. I'll have to agree with Idaho on this one.

    How's this one look?

    Thanks for the help guys, I'm excited to get better at photography and hopefully some day take really nice pictures like some of the guys on here.

    Does the horizon need to be straightened? Or does it really run downhill from right to left? I'm guessing from the clouds that it is already correct but figured I would ask.

    Lookin' good!

    Thanks everyone! and yeah, the trail dips down from right to left, so i think it's pretty close to being straight.

    Time to go out and take more photographs!

    I love the winding road a lot, it adds personality to it. The second one is much better for me also with a little bit of the sky cropped out. Where is this at? The area looks stunning!

    Nice Picture. If it were mine I would try to get the STUPID power lines out of there.

    Lovely though.....
