    Well, as my intro post says, I picked up a Nikon D90 last week. This weekend was my first time giving it a test run (My first time giving any sort of camera beyond a point a shoot a run since a brief encounter in the 90's).

    I'll post a few of the shots I took, tell me what you think. Feel free to blast the constructive criticism my way! I'm looking for it!

    Nikon D9
    Aperture: F/6.3
    Shutter Speed: 1/25s
    ISO: 200
    Focal Length: 18mm

    I like these. Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your first shoot!

    My thoughts:

    1 - I love the perspective on this one.

    2 - Great composition. Are those trees on the sides? It was like a natural frame... kewl. I saw you shot this at 1/160, why don't you try a slower shutter speed, it will give the water a softer look. Experiment and see what you like best.

    3 - I love the color in this one. Just beautiful.

    4 - Where do you live? This forrest is so funky!

    5 - Although the subject is interesting, there is just so much green (I felt the same about #4 but at least there were more shades of green and the sky to balance it a bit more).

    Great job on these!

    i like the first one the best, you could realy get some nice shots if you did the last few with a perspective like #1

    I like them quite a lot, as gardy stated the first's composition is the most interesting and well done, but they are all well exposed and shot. Nice job.

    Thanks all!

    Bekah, the shots were all taken in Golden Ears Provincial Park, just outside Vancouver BC.

    Gardy - I guess you could say I cheated on that shot. I was literaly looking up - that perspective is exactly how it is. All up hill! And no, I didnt even attempt the hike on that one :)
