    I always loved to casually snap photos whenever I go, and recently decided to take that important step of getting a fully manual camera. D3300 was the lucky winner, and I went out into the night to begin experimenting with all the fancy dials and settings. Some photos were heavily under-exposed by choice, so while I encourage everyone to criticize that choice, know that I'm aware of how dark they are.

    I've been drawing for many years now and can instantly spot if the drawing is "good" or "bad", and tell what it needs. I have no such skill with photography yet, so it's a very strange feeling posting something that might be complete rubbish. Sorry in advance if that's the case. Now, let's get started!

    You have some natural ability imo. A couple of them are pretty good. #5 and 6 (the buildings) arent bad especially 6, and the underpass shows some potential as well. Good photos. For future reference critiques are best posted as fewer shots, each jumbered so people will go more in dwpth on the few pictures and the numbering makes specifying which photi easy

    You did alright! Enjoy the new Nikon! One tip on dark photos is to expose them adequately in the field, but to then darken them in post; tends to make for a better looking dark image. In-field under-exposure, especially at night, tends to render highlights (street lights) for example that look unnaturally weak.
