    Greetings all and welcome to this little corner, where I will try to share with you some pictures, that are my "beginner" pictures. They have been taken in Bucharest mostly, with a Nikon D80 (two months old now).

    I am trying to get a hold of the technical factors, but I also want to share with you a bit of color from around here. And, if you would be so kind as to comment on any of the two main aspects (technique and message), I would really appreciate it !

    Thank you !

    Nice work! I especially like #2. With a quick look-through, I can't find anything wrong with them. :wink: I definitely don't look at these and think "beginner". You have a good eye... keep sharing! :thumbup:

    Well, thank you, I'll take that as a compliment, as I'm still very much a beginner myself. :D Looks like a beautiful place where you live! Do you travel much, or are your shots taken close to home?

    Just a suggestion:

    Sharpened it a bit, lightened up the face & hands, added a wee bit of contrast and de-saturated the keys on the accordion.

    This is about 2 minutes worth of work in CaptureNX, if I were really doing this I would have spent more time making the skin tone a bit better.

    Here they are side by side, the edited one left:

    Hmm. Not a 'beginner' at all, then!

    Many of these I like, 3 and 4 particularly. The only problem I find with these are the titles. Occasionally a title will add something to the picture, but I find that all these (with the exception of 4) take away from the photo.

    This is, of course, personal preference, and it comes from one who's photos' titles are the subject, and the shutter number of that subject. (For example, "Black and White, Canyon Way, 7".) But I am so organized that it borders on OCD, so take my suggestion with a grain of salt. :lol:

    Sabbith, if i had to chose between the two I go for the original as your rendition looks unreal. Something in between maybe.

    Too many pics to comment on, but really nice work as a body. Impressive stuff, really.
