    I'm totally new to photography but my fiance has been interested in for years and years. I guess I wanted a hobby I could dump all my money into - I seem to have found it.

    on with the photos

    C&C welcomed and encouraged...

    I'm probably not the best judge on this, but I'll give it a try.

    No.'s 1,3 and 5 are awesome photos IMO. All interesting and all well composed and captured.

    The others are just lacking that certain something that grabs my interest. To me they're just pictures of doors or pictures of windows. Very nice doors and windows, but nonetheless still just doors and windows. It just needs that extra something to grab my attention. Maybe an interesting point of view or some nice vivid colours like in no.3

    Just something to ponder, perhaps...

    Ryan, first thing is welcome to you to the forum. The 2nd is for everyone:
    When you need the C&C there are few things to undertand.

    1. The time the computer load the pictures from the moment we click. The more pictures there are - the longer it will load. There are many threads to look, and most of the posters placed a lot of pictures. I have fast broadband now so I got no problem loading, but how about others?

    2. Human mind tend to reject heavy load that overwhelming it's capabilities at once. This is a well known science.

    So if the poster post one or two photos, it gives the viewer time to digest the sceneries in his/her vicinity into the analytical brain to evaluate. Otherwise the brain will bypass them.

    thanks for the comments and suggestions. I'll take them to heart next time I'm out shooting. Please, if anyone has anymore suggestions on how I can improve my shots, let me know. These particular photos are from about 3 weeks ago when I was just starting out. I've noticed lately that my photos haven't exactly been wowing me and it has become a little discouraging but I know inspiration and better shots will come with time. I've been reading up on photography and taking pictures - a lot.

    I'm still figuring out what my camera can do and different techniques. I still haven't even delved into my flash yet but I'm eager to learn about the different things I can do with it.

    I like most of them, but for 1, you should have focused on something wayyyyyyy down there, so that the edges are blurred.
