    So I decided for the first time to take my slr out and actually use it. I shot a whole roll and while I was outside my house discovered these interesting things. Im kinda new to photography, so only some of these images have been slightly cropped, as I am a photoshop idiot as of now.

    They're all quite good but I really like that third one!

    Very interesting effect!.... I like the 3rd, 5th and 2nd quite a bit, the fourth is close except for the sun glaring through. I love the idea of the first one, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be as effective as the others. Glad to see you pulling out the SLR - what kind do you have?

    good eye karalee!

    those are definately different from the usual assortment of pics we get here, it was a pleasure to look through them!

    of these, number 2 is my favourite! I love the continuity of the powerlines from the top of the pic to the bottom. Also the hit of blue sky is delicious! Number one has some potential - i think i would like to see pic rotated a bit so the flagpole was straight.

    The rest are quite nice too :thumbsup:

    since we just got hit by a minor cyclone, you've inspired me to go out and take pics of puddles :) thanks for sharing!

    you have a wonderful eye :D ... if you're just beginning, then ur definately a natural ... some of us have to work at it :oops:

    i cant really see to much to improve, but since u want to hear something ... u could pay closer attention to composition and see what u want in the frame without cropping in photoshop ... see there, u have something to acheive .. work towards :lol:

    may also want to experiment with some of these in b&w as well (someone mentioned that earlier) ... great stuff... u should be proud!!
