Hey people

Just bought a Nikon d3100 and to be honest, I dont know anything about it or photography. I went out for a day and took 100's of photos using many different settings. Dont know how to properly adjust white balance etc.
Thats why I came here to learn and ask for help!

I want to upload photos so that you guys can tell me how to capture a better photo and for tips etc.
I tried to upload photos but an orange exclamation mark is showing up beside the file name. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
I think your file is too large, try compressing it a bit
A forum isn't a great place to learn the entire craft of photography. Try books, videos, classes and practice. Forums are slow and you need professional advice.
I agree with hirejn, read some books or some articles on the internet. If you have any friends who are into photography, ask them questions, im sure they'll help. I was in your shoes 2 years ago and I taught myself everything and with the help from reading and my friends. Now im sitting here with a full frame 5D and a bunch of lenses and a pretty good portfolio of work. You'll get there, just need to learn a bit.
Play with what interests you.
Some here seem to have a love for cars; others, aeroplanes (I can understand the latter).
For me, street photography hits the spot.

My internet is painfully slow so very high quality images takes an age to upload.
Try setting the camera down a notch and see what the file sizes look like.
