    Hi Guys!

    I'm a new member of the site, and an avid amateur photographer / Instagrammer. Currently learning the interrelationships between my Nikon's features, and just breaking my DLSR in. Also, working on different editing techniques (using IG and LightRoom at the moment), and searching for creative composition opportunities when I shoot.

    Would love any critical feedback that you'd be willing to give me considering my style, composition, and any insights/advice you would give me! I'm super open to feedback and trying to get more technically proficient, more curated with my edits, and framing shots in a more attractive way.

    Thank you guys and I look forward to improving my skill, helping others as I become more proficient, and having fun along the way.

    Aaron

    You will get more valuable feedback if you choose one or two photos and post them for critique.

    I'm on my phone so maybe it's me but I still see only links not photos posted to the site.

    Greetings!

    The first is not much. It has nothing for me to settle on as the subject.

    The second is nicely composed, and the editing reminds me of the old-timey postcards.

    The third is mildly interesting, but you seem to be trying to get two subjects in one shot.

    FYI
    I would never click on a link that has "my dirty laundry" in it.
    Sounds like a porn site.

    The Audi shot lacks that punch with the car that separates it from the scene. It doesn't look posed, only haphazardly placed there. The San Fran shot is nice. I don't do street photography enough to understand the third.

    Thoughts on these? These are San Francisco based shots (Market Street, Baker Beach, and Mount Tamalpais State Park looking out towards the Pacific and Farrallon Islands)

    Again, not much here either.

    #1 is a sunset.

    #2 appears to be posted upside-down.

    #3 is lacking basic composition, having no clearly defined subject.
