    Well, here's the first roll of film I shot with my Pentax K1000. These were scanned directly from the negatives. Comments/critique would be greatly appreciated. :)

    1) The bell tower at Quarry Pond plays songs. :D

    2) Not that I'd want to swim in ice water, anyway.

    3) My first macro shot with my Vivitar 70-210mm macro zoom lens.

    4) The goose seems to be sizing me up. :lol:

    5) Goosey tracks. Desaturated in PS because it had a funny orange color.

    6)

    7) This image and the next two are of the same pied-billed grebe. I'm so happy that they turned out well. What I'm not happy about is the fact that the grebe was swimming in an area choked with branches, making it impossible to get a clear shot. :irked:

    10) A little blurry, but I'm still getting used to my lens.

    11) Frozen water from a drainpipe.

    12) Another slightly out of focus one. Stupid multi-prism focusing...

    13) These two geese just refuse to leave Quarry Pond. :lol:

    You're gonna have a BUNCH of fun with that camera. It looks like the two of you are getting know each other.

    I bet you'll get more detailed critiques if you post one or two images at time. There's so much here to address.

    Good luck!

    Oh, believe me, if this was done with one of the scanners in the library, it would be worse. :lol: As I said in my comment at the beginning, these were scanned directly from the negatives. I suppose I neglected to mention that they were transferred to a CD from there. The compression might be part of the problem. I figured the quality would be a little better if I let the photo people do it. :|
