    I'm a complete beginner, I just got my first SLR (a Canon AE-1 Program) about 2 weeks ago, but here are a couple of the shots that I think turned out well -- any comments or criticism are welcome!

    Nice shots there, especially like that second one...there's a real mood to it!

    Good clear shots too!

    Hiya cigrainger, welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    These photos do not show in the very least that you are a beginner!
    Well done.
    So this is Edinburgh Zoo?
    Too bad I never had the time to go there when I was in Edinburgh (which was only 2 entire days, mind you) back in ... when was it? 2003?

    OK, it is a lovely area as shows so well in your first photo here!
    I really like the second, you got really, really close to that ... erm :scratch: yeah, well, that... [​IMG] ... ehem .... [​IMG] :blulsh2:

    Ha, and somehow I KNEW our lost prophet would love the otters, as well as that our Antarctican would love the penguin - she is the Penguin Queen, after all :D!

    Thanks a ton!

    I really appreciate that you said it doesn't look like I'm a beginner, because I'm absolutely clueless and just trying to teach myself from the internet before taking a class this summer! Edinburgh is a great place, I'm lucky to go to university here.

    Yep, that jaguar was an absolute ham, he loved the camera, as did the otters! It seems others on the forum share the same love I have for animals.

    Thanks again!
