    Hello all. New guy here. I've been tinkering with my D3000 trying to work on colors, lighting and good use of shadows...well, basically I've been trying to figure everything out. :lol:

    Your photos came out beautifully. I especially like the last one.

    Is your white balance off on the first one--or is it just the lack of white? Everything came out really orange. Also, on the first picture, it seems just a little off in the composition. I would have preferred to see the sign just a little more to the right (maybe I'm just too much of a stickler on the rule of thirds).

    Thanks for the feedback Robyn. The picture was flat and I tried to jazz it up. When I used the color booster and saw the red on the sign begin to pop out, I think I got too focused on that.

    I am really enjoying that last picture. I like the first pic, but I agree that the sign should be placed a smidge to the right. And it could stand to be desaturated just a bit.

    Thank you for your comments. I just took a workshop on outdoor lighting yesterday and will be going back to see if I can do better.
