    Nice first shots, you obviously like your cars and architectual landscapes, which is a great thing to start with, because you can quickly learn the correct lighting benifits.

    Make sure you control your angle choices, as they can make the main focus look a little off.

    I really liked the 7th picture alot, however it needs to be straightened, and it would get alot more praise if that scratched pipe was out of view, so maybe go in a little closer and you'll have a great shot on your hands.

    Now I'm not gonna go all lesbian here, but your girlfriend has amazing eyes, I'd deffinitly do more shots of her to practise with portraits if I were you!

    Great start overall, deffinitly keep at it and you'll go far.

    thank you so much for the feedback!
    yea I was outside for about an hour taking shot after shot but that's no excuse for a photographer wanting to learn! Yea# #7 is off that I look at it. I will practice getting closer and watching my angles as well. and thank you for the compliment about my girl's eyes. I will take that into consideration and practice more portrait shots as well.

    After I get the hang of things, I eventually need to buy a tripod, and some more lenses as well. thanks!

    Yeah...I like the idea behind #7 but it needs to be straightened (easily done in photoshop).

    Also I'd like it better if the entire thing was in focus. Were you holding your camera, or did you have a tripod? If you did have a tripod, close up the aperture and use a longer exposure and everything should focus a little better.

    Subject matter, focus, contrast, framing, exposure, and lighting. It all needs allot of work! find better subjects first, these are pretty boring. imo

    I agree with most of the others above. With a new toy in hand it's easy to overlook the fundamentals. If you are unsure what the fundamentals you can keep asking questions and posting photos to get better grounded. I would also recommend the book Undersatnding Exposure to really explain what those basics are.



    a5, I know you've been called on this before. The guidelines for the general gallery are: A gallery for sharing photos and getting feedback, including general critique. For anybody with half a brain, commenting on someone's post with a new camera and obviously new to the art, discretion, decorum and gentle nudging is the approach to take. Encourage to do better. Is you insistent barrage of attacks an attempt to hide your own frailties or is there more that you have issues with. How about leaving that attitude at the doorstep when you login to TPF and offer some constructive comments.

    Typical of a users first shots a lot of them seem a little blurry and lacking interest. But stay snap-happy, I started with the same camera, it's a lot of fun. Move off of the green square as fast as you can!
