    Hi, I have been doing digital photography for a little over 2 1/2 years now. My first DSLR camera was a D50 and I more recently go a D300 at the beginning of this year. I have a passion for landscape and nature photography even though apparently I am not very good at it yet in spite of over 2 years practicing and reading articles and practicing to get better.
    Anyway I hope to learn more and perhaps get some constructive criticism on how to improve.

    Welcome to ThePhotoForum, Marcopolo, and I hope you will find what you're looking for here. From what I have seen so far, your photography may be different from what your friend thinks is the alpha and omega of photography, but it is not as bad as he says it is!

    That would be Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell, and some French photographers I have never heard of. Actually after showing him some of Galen Rowell's stuff, he thinks Galen Rowell is a lot better than I am (but he was still a bit critical of even him), he actually prefers black and white photography.

    Photography is an art and therefore subject to interpretation by individual viewers. What someone thinks is a good photo may be disliked by someone else, and that's perfectly OK. It's not science.

    I've only belonged to this forum a short while, but have found a lot of useful information here. Welcome aboard.
