    Trying to get the hang of my new Nikon D60. Some of these were taken a while ago, but still.. I'm just starting out so any comments would be appreciated. =]

    Ummm, I'd stick with the first one as being the best. The others seem to have an exposure problem. I love #1 though.

    Honestly I think you have the eye for it! I love what you did on #1. Absolutely beautiful composition and color. Great shot man!

    #3 has a decent line that captures me a tad bit and #2 has some bokeh however frankly the others just don't have a major focal point. It's to scattered IMO. Try some isolation techniques like blurring the background more, having the subject as the focal point by increasing their exposure, and maybe simplifying the content of your shots.

    When I started doing portraits I began with head shots since there were not as much elements involved. Once I was confident in my skill I moved on to head and shoulder shots, then the whole body shots then finally I included the subject and the environment.

    Keep shooting man. I think your getting off on the right foot :thumbup:

    Thanks for the feedback. =) I haven't really gotten the hang of controlling exposure yet. Mostly I just think I don't take my time enough, so I end up with photos that feel rushed and scattered.

    The first one is quite nice, but the color is bit too saturated for my tastes. Personally I like the last one the best, its not a technically great photo, exposure etc could be much better, but I like the feeling you captured in it. The stark trees, the corner of the burned out house and then the colorful new life in the foreground. You're off to a good start.

    Oh wow! I love 1, 5 and 6.
    Like others have said, number one is definitely the best! Very nice colors and everything is real crisp and focused. Very nice. Good job!
