    Hi everyone, Im new on the forum, and I think Ill like it here. Ill give a little back ground on myself...
    I have been into photography for a while, but only recently have I started to take it seriously. I am 18, and in the past I have taken photos for the sake of capturing memories. Lately I've been exploreing deeper into the art, and have purchased my first SLR. I bought a Canon EOS XS back in Dec of 09, and I have already taken over 2000 pictures.

    Im posting some of my favorites for criticism

    Thanks!

    Nick

    I love the colors in #1.... REALLY love them.

    The lighting in #2 looks very nice, too.

    :)

    Welcome to the forum nick. I'm not really that good at giving critique,but I can tell you that you can post multiple pics in the same post. Just leave some space in between them and number them. Might save you some time.

    Welcome and good shots.
    The first is a tough shot to get right for alot of people, and you pulled it off well. Snow can be daunting to junior photographers, we have a few threads going on the subject at the moment.

    I like the lighting in the second photo, and the feeling/eye contact. What did you use for fill light?

    Thanks for the comments! I actually used natural lighting as the fill light. Instead of moving a light source to fit my need, I just moved the camera to where the lighting was best.

    Makes sense now that I think about it. You got the blown highlights when you set the exposure for the face.

    I enjoy the snow photos (makes me miss the snow).

    You have some great shots there. I like #2, I've seen a lot of photos in this style but your one seems to just look nice, good job.

    #1 shows great promise. Truly teriffic colors and sharpness.

    Others don't do it for me compisitionally and some are over exposed. The ones into the sun never should have made it off the camera.
