    Nikon D60 This was hand held with the 18/55 VB lens Thank you I found out later I was suppose to use a tripod to take these shots LOL . I don't have one though yet I bought a mono pod and will buy a tri pod next just buying a little at a time I want a macro lens but can't do that yet either . I need to learn how to do things off Auto . I have classes that I am going to take but I wanted to get a feel for my camera first before I start any classes Also would like it to be warmer weather when I take them. Thank you I will try to post more pictures soon. And would love feed back : )

    I'm kind've in the same boat as you. I bought a D60 two days ago, my first camera that I bought for myself. I haven't taken any photo's using camera's, except my cellphone, in about 6 months. I did a 2-day course on SLR's early last year and I'm taking photography in school this year.

    Just read up on things like ISO, aperture/f stops and shutter speed. Once you get the basics, go into Manual mode and start playing around. I suggest buying a 4GB+ card and going crazy at a park or something, don't look at any of the pics you took until you get home.

    A lot of my pictures were ruined because I didn't have a steady surface or tripod, I suggest checking out night photography, I did a bit last night with no tripod and it turned out pretty bad, they were all too blurry. Buying a tripod for $30 off an online auction site.

    Best of luck! :D

    Tripods should really only be necessary if your shutter speeds is fairly slow, assuming you're using the kit lens. Average rule: take 1/<focal length>. That should be about the slowest shutter speed you can use for handheld shots. So if you're shooting something at 30mm focal length, you should be shooting at no slower than 1/30s shutter speed :)

    As to the picture, I'd look at composing the image a little different. The left side of the frame is pretty full with the branch and the ice, but the right side feels pretty empty. Experiment with different angles/views of your subject to fill the frame, if nothing else it will help you "see" differently.

    Other than that; read all you can about photography, enjoy your class, and shoot as much and often as you can!
