    congratulations on your new camera! :D

    I think you could choose your subjects better to have a more interesting picture.

    i like the last pic. Shows depth.

    The last one could use more color. The rest just look like snapshots of rubble. Have you looked into an editing program like Lightroom 2? You can download a free 30-day trial. If you use a Mac you can do the same thing with Aperture.

    Keep at it. A general rule of photography is your first 10,000 pictures will be junk.

    hmm...well perhaps it's not the subject that's the problem..my framing was probably too generic. In my view, photography means creating something out of nothing..I failed haha..I'm gonna get some more up soon
