    GO easy, im new the SLR scene. I picked myself up a nikon d80 with a buch of goodies from my friend. He was in need of cash and i wanted a camera so we helped each other out.

    Sorry, cant figure out how to post from flickr so i guess photobucket will do.

    Your link isn't working. There are some guides posted at the top of the forum on how to properly link.

    In your case use the tage to start your string, followed by [URL]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2665/3797989991_7f840078b3.jpg[/URL]
    and ended in

    Should come out like this:

    Edit, removed the photo, tis not mine, and i don't want anyone to confuse with being mine. Not because it wasn't good, but because I have no right to claim it as.

    Learn it and love it.

    Posting the images directly in the thread usually get you more responses than posting a link and asking people to go check them out.

    #1 - It's out of focus. There's no real focal point to the photo. Seems pretty noisy as well. I persoanlly like the composition of the photo though. Close-ups like that are extremely difficult to do well.

    #2 - Seems a bit dark to me. But it's a neat idea. Good composition. I'd just bump up the exposure a bit.

    #3 - Neat shot. Like the 1st though, I'm having trouble finding a point that's in focus.

    #4 - My favorite of the bunch. Can't find too much wrong with it, but it would have been cool if the drop had been in focus.

    ^thanks for the feedback.

    I was going for the darker look in the 3rd one. But ill bup up the exposure and see how some other ones turn out.

    Still getting the hang of the settings and stuff. But im sure given a few weeks ill get it down.

    #1 The colours are flat, there is grain in the image (high ISO?), its out of focus, there are some blowouts (mostly up top) and the bottom part is too close to the frame. dont like this one

    #2 Fun concept, would of liked to see the top stiches in the shot as well to complete the line. A tad dark for my tastes, colours need to be punched a bit as well

    #3 nice try with the composition of the candles, i dont like how the big one seems to be turning away from the viewer. higher flames all around would of been cool too. Not bad

    #4 The best of the bunch. Nice lines in the picture, crisp faucet. What aperture were you at? I'm thinking pretty wide, so going a tad bit narrow may of also picked up the water droplet in focus. The one annoying thing is on the right side,under the handle. Kinda breaks the clean lines in the image. Check your area before you snap and remove unwanted things

    #1 - Was the original image cropped?

    #2 - Underexposed

    #3 - I like this image...wish more of the bottom candles were included in the frame.

    #4 - Pop-up flash? Don't care for this image.

    thanks on the feedback. I take all sorts of it. Just trying to learn here so im ready to soak it in. Even if its bad.

    -High ISO. I will work on that. (once i figure everything out)
    -Will play more with the colors. Gonna take another and see how it looks with the dirty red stitches. I can see how it would add more to the picture.
    -Yeah pop up flash, still getting used to it but now i got better at it, not using the flash anymore just letting it get exposed more. (played with it all day, ill post new pix soon)

    ah im so happy right now.. Played with the ISO settings (never did before reminder im new at this) and the pictures came out beautiful. Nothing compared to what i was taking before. It was set on HI ISO, i lowered it and the difference is amazing.
