    Hi, I have just recently become interested in photography and got myself a Nikon D3000. Below is just a picture outside the airport while I was just playing with my new camera waiting for my gf.

    No need to double post, technically this is your second post. Sorry.

    It looks to be out of focus, were you using a tripod?

    Looks like he was in a vehicle and those reflections are from the hood.

    The main issue I see is there is alot going on in the picture, the vehicles are unfocused. Its not bad for a new photographer, keep trying, read the forums for tips, and get a tripod for those kind of pictures

    Well, as a noob myself I don't know much but I do know that your horizon is slanted and not straight.It's not very interesting either. But I understand that you just started (so did I, and I've not done too great either) and just need to work on it. The people here are very helpful and wise. I'm sure they'll give you some great tips to get you off shooting well.

    Tip from me, check out this thread: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...rum-photo-gallery/123160-tutorial-thread.html

    Finally, check out the book Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson Your public library may have it. Amazon has it here: http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Exposure-Photographs-Digital-Updated/dp/0817463003

    They are snapshots. They lack any interest and don't really do ANYTHING for me.

    I recommend you read Photography: The Rules of Composition – PictureCorrect

    Many people will tell you to pick up a book about exposure, forget the title. But just google the title (I'm sure someone will tell you) with the words online version and there is one. Which will save you some dough. Have fun.
