    I just got into photography since it has always intrested me. I went out and took a couple snapshots for the first time. I have just bought a Panasonic DMC-FZ28 and like it so far. The last photo was taken with my phone at work, but I liked how it turned out. Any comments will be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Welcome to TPF!

    I like these, but here are my two initial thoughts:
    2: I think the vignette effect here is too much, although I do like the desaturation effect.
    3: I like this one, especially the tone - almost like a sepia tone! If this were mine, I'd crop it into a pano shape and blow it up really really large. Yup. Definitely like 3 the best.

    Welcome to the hobby and welcome to ThePhotoForum, Subvert!

    Of these photos shown, the first attracts me because of the gradated blues from almost white to deepest blue, the third because of the subject (I love sparrows), the colours and the light, and if this were mine, I'd do the same as Harmony would: crop it to vertical so we'd be taken closer to the cute, little subjects. The fourth is well spotted and looks good, though I don't understand at all what I'm looking at... ;)
    Leaves the second ... which is "not for me", as a) I really do not like vignetting, and b) I find the subject quite boring, and c) I see the slightly tilted horizon and wish it were straight ;). (All of this is purely subjective, of course).
