    Welcome to the forums!

    On 1 the horizon is kind of slanted, also a circular polarizer would probably help. Number 2 could be brighter, unless you were going for a darker mood, in number 3 the bottom of the picture where the sky is is blown out, and I don't see anything wrong with number 4.

    Overall great shots for having just started!

    Great shots!

    #1 you could do some post processing to the picture to pop the colors

    #2 it is very dark - i would up the exposure

    #3 I think a different angle would have worked here

    #4 Add more contrast to the picture so that it doesn't look so flat.

    Thanks for the advice. I've noticed that th D40 overexposes quite a bit, what advice do you have to minimise this.

    Here are some more shots from the last couple of days.
