    Just found this forum recently, have done some lurking and this is my first post. I bought my camera 2 years ago and have done very little photography other than point and shoot personal stuff not what you would consider photography though.Anyway I think I'm really going to get into learning my camera and photography aspects ya know to become better. My camera is a Nikon D40 w/18-55 and 55-200VR lens, and just got for these for xmas, a battery grip, remote, and sb-400 flash. I think its a good beginner setup.The one thing I don't have is any photo editing software, I'll have to look into that.Here are some of my better pics I think.

    My Fiance', I took this picture after a storm rolled through.

    Same time and place as the first pic, it is the bay bridge.

    This is just a pic of my back yard, but I think it looks creepy.

    GIMP is great FREE photo editing software

    Your photos say they are ok to edit. I took a crack at the first one. Hope you don't mind.

    the bridge shot is pretty cool
    there is too much tilt in the woman on the boat shot, almost makes her look like she is about to fall in the water

    nice to see a new comer with some nice images, welcome

    Yes, quite refreshing! :thumbup:


    I really love the reflection shot. I imagine that you couldn't get closer or having a bigger lens. I would love to have had a 300mm to zoom in to the snow covered "bush" right by the water! :drool:
