    Nice work on both shots. I prefer #2. Good composition and great colors.

    First one is ok... I wonder if you color balanced the orange out of it or something? The object may be a bit too centered, as well. There's that line that leads to the object. I bet if you tossed the object off-center and angled that visual line was at an angle, that would be really neat... anyway...

    The second one is AMAZING. Fantastic colors, moods, textures... so much good stuff. I might crop it a bit differently here and there as just a matter of taste, but it's an absolutely stunning shot that I would instantly print and hang on the wall. REALLY nice shot.

    The second one actually made my heart skip a little when I saw it. Beautiful.

    Thank you all for the great comments, I purchased my camera at Christmas time (Nikon D-60) but very quickly found that this was going to be something that I love. Saturday I picked up a new D90 and a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 Lens and I am having a blast.

    #2 is really good! I love the colors.

    One doesn't seem like anything special though.

    I agree #1 is ok but #2 is of the hook I want to throw a frame around that one.....

    Must have been cold that night. But good photos. The second one is the strongest.
