    I recently bought my first DSLR and was lucky enough to land a trip to Nice. Here are some pictures I shot there. Your C&C are welcome.

    Thanks for the CC @MohaimenK. I had to over expose the tower and rocks to bring out the texture of the foliage.... The picture was shot in Av mode.... and each F-stop either over exposes or under exposes part of the picture....

    Photo four could use a bit off-blue correction of the white balance without it affecting the blue sky and water. Personally I like the exposure of the third picture best but could use a tad more vibrancy. I really like your last image even though it is a bit over exposed. You can try and shoot raw and do post processing on your computer. For raw format, you can over expose to some extend and still retain all detail. Nice going!

    You could have shot it with a lower ISO also to improve color detail.

    I am definitely no expert, but I like the last two shots even though number 5 looks over saturated. I just wish there was more detail in the statues in front of the fountain.

    The last 2 were awesome I feel like the second to last could use a little bit more light or it's underexposed I could say.

    1) foreground could use more light.
    2) blurry and over processed.
    3) slightly underexposed
    4) not bad
    5) the statues in the water need more light.
    6) ur best out of the six imop

    Thank you everyone for your excellent feedback... Each one of these are hand held shots... and in most cases I had to either shoot during midday, when the light was at the harshest (reason for under exposing the statues in 5 and preserve details of the water) or I had to shoot late in the evening (2 - no post processing. Straight off the camera in jpeg format).
