    I was messing around with my camera before the big snowstorm and got this shot..

    I got my first dSLR yesterday, a D80 with some cheap lenses.. This was my first time shooting with anything like that so I was using mostly auto settings.. I think it came out pretty good though, not sure..

    Give me feedback, good or bad, I would like to improve! :)

    It's very grainy, but that isn't too hard to fix in this case.

    It's a pretty interesting shot.

    It is grainy, but in this case I feel like it adds to the shot. Makes me feel like I am fatigued and looking down the never ending road home.

    By grainy, are you talking about the snow thats falling? It was pretty hard to get a good shot and I was dissapointed.. But when I looked at it more I thought it added more to the picture.. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy.. :)

    Here's the same road in front of my house today.. I was trying to mess with the manual focus on moving objects.. I don't like the DOF in this one, but its not too bad..

    I likethe first photo. I like the angle of the photo and the snow makes a great effect on the photo. The second photo is also very cool! Nice shots.

    Photo really doesn’t look that grainy, I think the appearance is from the snow…the pavement looks a big grainy but I think that’s just from the snow again…if you look at the fence/wood there isn’t much distortion…

    Nice shot

    Falling snow does not = grain :)

    Really good shot I like everything about it, the falling snow makes you "feel" the cold.

    Overall great shot.

    Thanks.. I just came off a Panasonic DMC-LZ5 point n' shoot.. You could ajust the shutter, AF mode, ISO sensitivity, white balance, and exposure, so I at least have an idea what I'm doing.. It's not like it's my first time using a camera or anything..

    But, I'm amazed, I honestly never thought a camera could be so good.. When I got it on Monday, I went around taking pictures for 6 or 7 hours.. I'm amazed at the quality of shots I can get, with so little experience.. I love my D80! :lmao:


    Thanks to everybody for the responses/replies. I appreciate each one!
