    This photo was taken when i was in China in the Summer Palace... strangely it was winter, and still beautiful. I was new to photography and was my first camera. Pretty pleased with the shot.

    This was more recent at a mexican restaurant in Sydney. It wasnt a planned shot, it was a suprise shot of the unsuspecting victim, which is why the focus is off a bit.

    This was taken when i got a new guitar, the shot is probably unoriginal, but i like it anyway.

    Welcome to the forum. Don't worry about what you have, just what you do with it. :)

    I like the first the most. I like the colours and delicate branches. You should be please with that shot.

    These shots are fantastic. Like ferny said, the equipment doesn't matter as much as what you do with it. Your camera doesn't compose the shot, it just captures it. I like what you did with the guitar especially. I have seen the shot done many ways and most come from the top of the neck (the nut if you know your guitar well) and use a shallow DOF. I like this shot better. Also the first shot is GOLD! Great silohuette (or however you spell it) and detail on the branches. Welcome to the forum, if this is your first stuff I can't wait to see where you can go from here.

    Welcome to TPF, Nick ... why are you "in the surf"? ;)

    The first one is most appealing because of its atmosphere, but the candid portrait picture is also very nice.
    You are right: the shallow DOF pic of the guitar strings is not very original, seems like all those who own a guitar take this kind of photo at one point in time, but I still like that one, too.

    You are off to a very good start, and equipment is not all!!! What you see and how you capture it counts most.
