    hey welcome to TPF,

    Im also a noob so take what i say w/ a grain of salt ;)

    first, it could just be this p.o.s. moniter i have at work but all the pic's (except for the b&w one) look a lil over saturated to me.

    REALLY like the composition in #1 but the orange cone comming down from the top irks me.

    But overall GJ

    noob or no noob ill take any feedback that i can get.

    yeah i like to raise the contrast a bit on my pictures. i just like feel of crisp bright colors in my pictures. im not sure maybe your monitor could be making it even more saturated

    haha on number 1 i actually like the orange part over the moutains. it was a sunset in alaska.

    thanks for the input.

    Nice images. Not overly exciting but nice. I agree the orange cone of doom is a little distracting or weird or something.

    I like the colors on those exhaust pipes.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Explosions, fire and zombies. Particularly zombies. :) j/k

    Honestly, that's a question only years and years of experience can teach you. Someone asked about this earlier today on the forums in one way or another- don't recall the thread, but basically it's all about taking tons of pictures of your own and finding out what works and what doesn't, as well as just looking at as many pictures as you can, and learning from them.

    I spent a good hour yesterday afternoon in a dentist's office (after my appointment) pouring over some photography books that they had there. Studying the images, trying to understand why they hit me or why they didn't, etc. I also am constantly looking at pictures up here on this forum to try to learn things.

    I wish I could give you an easier or faster formula, but I can't. :(

    Something else to keep in mind, btw... there isn't a "right way" to do this. For every picture, some percentage of people will love it, and some will hate it. One of my absolute favorite pictures that I have taken, that a great many people really like and admire... is the subject of absolute hatred from my wife. She despises it. <shrug>

    If it works for you and you're happy with it, then so be it. :)
