    Just a little intro, I am a Newbie to this site and have been lurking and looking at everyones amazing talent. I am a native to Oregon, specifically the Portland Metro area. I do mostly Landscape and Wildlife photography.
    I have only been a hobbyist of photography for about a year so there is a lot for me to learn but I love to, so I look forward to learn from others and share my photography in the process.

    So here are just a few I took the other day.
    C&C are welcome.

    I love the second, beautiful expression on the duck and great sharpness. On the first the PSing is a little overdone and there is a halo around it which bugs me but great shot nonetheless.

    I love your bird photos - great focusing work with all 3 - some darker areas, but wildlife is hardly ever easy to shoot - and in shot 2 the lighting and shadows highlighting the head really makes that shot!

    With the dog in the first shot you have his nose in wonderfull sharpness, his eyes less so - I find with animals in general because they have long faces, when you shoot direct on its better to use a smaller aperture (larger f number) something between f5.6 and f8 area though more if you are closer. That way when you focus on the eyes (best place) you have more of a chance of getting the nose in focus as well.
    The last shot is a great and angle and also good to be wide open with the lens aperture - but its a shame that you cut off the top of his head.

    Beginner you might be, but you are showing some great skills here
