I just got my first SLR camera for Christmas, and this is from my first roll - basically trying out how the camera works. Although I was a bit disappointed with my first attempts. I know we can't be expert all at once, but still... I think how much a polarizing filter might have helped these pictures, but wondering if anyone has any other advice. The good thing is that this building is in a field behind my house, so it's easy to go shoot it anytime I want. Oh, also my monitor is crap so I can't really tell if I should adjust the contrast on these or not, or how much. Thanks everyone.
