    I've just recently bought a D40x and gotten into photography. I played around with some 35mm photography many years ago, but this is my first real experience in the digital world. Here's some of my first photos taken while trying to get used to my camera..

    Congrats on your new camera ... and you venture out at night at once. Very nice. I like the night photos best of all, I must say. All of them.

    The dog is underexposed and not all sharp. The setting sun is smack in the centre of your frame, and there is a lot of dead space in the bottom half of that photo ... it may well have been your choice, if so then ... ok by me. The last of the sunset photos has too many distracting elements in them (car, corner of a roof) ... but the night photos are good. Maybe you could have moved the camera downward just a tad more in the second of the three night photos, as not to crop the light reflections off the bridge...

    Unfortunately I'm far more interested in photographing at night than I am during the day, so it seems a lot harder to keep me concentrated while shooting during the day. There just seems to be far more interesting things at night and it seems easier for me to photograph correctly(the way I intend, I mean)

    Thanks for the advice :)
