    I met my niece for the first time last month, and snapped some(alot) of pictures of her. My favorite is possibly this one. There is no post editing other than resize, the camera is actually set to auto. Its my first time actually handling a SLR(D80) so I think it looks pretty good haha. I saw her running toward me and quickly did a shot from pretty much the hip. My sister and brother in law are in the background.

    I just bought my D5000 the other day. I'm totally a beginner hoping to learn alot from the forum

    Yeah, it's a shame it's blurry because the scene is nice. Maybe if the girl was in focus (or not blurred from motion) at least..

    Keep practicing OP and don't get upset about missing a good shot or two.

    This (mainly the title) totally reminds me of that kid who swore he had a lucky shot with that cat. :meh:
    Anyways, I think it'd be a cute shot if it was in focus.

    I agree... Focus is off... Motion blur... Maybe if you used a faster shutter speed...
    I have the same difficulty. My focus, even when using automatic focus, is often off. But as I always tell myself... Practice makes perfect. :) Don't stop shooting.

    Other than the focus... I like the picture. :)

    Thanks for the comments guys. I realize that the focus is off, but I did kind of like it. It gives the photograph a different feeling. However, I can see its not popular, which is fine.

    Just wanted to show off my cuute niece anyways :D

    No.. she's right. The size of his signature is vulgar and unnecessary.

    Bigger than his:thumbup:

    27.5" 1920x1200. Wish the color and viewing angle is better though. I need to get this monitor calibrated.
