    Hi, I just got my first DSLR (Nikon D90/18-105mm) and I've taken a lot of bad photos in the last week or so. I'm mainly struggling with composition at this point but I'm resolved to improve it a lot over time. Here's my first attempt at HDR. Opinions are welcome (without sugar-coating, please). You can disregard the Photomatix watermarks.

    Thank you! :)

    I like the HDR treatment here.

    But as a side note, no need to post the full resolution image. 800x600 72dpi is plenty big to look at and review an image.

    yeah that image was huge.

    moving on.

    personally, if you know you are struggling with composition, i think i would focus more on that, and getting the basics down than jumping into something like HDR (which will bring out a whole new host of conversations), and processing in general.

    shoot til your fingers hurt. it's free. :D

    I know, I know. I'm just trying to figure out what I like. I don't think HDR really grabs me but I wanted to try it. I think macro will be my thing - just need the right lenses.
