    Horse crazy don't get me wrong I am in love with the dancing photo, it is actually really great, but I would have just like to see another centimeter of space in the frame between them and the edge, and out of the 2 I still like the dancing one better because of the flow of the photo and of course the color works better in that one.

    I actually just threw my D40 off my balcony to fulfill its warranty and replace it with a D5100 (Black Tie warranties at Best Buy rock). I loved that thing and hated breaking it like that. I just wanted an upgrade from the 6 megapixels, which still wasn't even bad because I don't edit nor do I blow up huge prints. It's a great little camera that proved to put up a fight when I threw it...because it took 3 times..

    I would also recommend different filters like a UV and/or Circular Polarizer. I take most of my pictures out in the sun, so UV helps a lot. I also prefer pretty color-saturated pictures so I like my polarizer. They're pretty cheap and make a world of difference.

    That is so funny! I laughed so hard! You actually THREW it off your balcony? He he!
    I know I got a bargain then, if it took you 3 times

    Po, I can't imagine how much fun that would have been though! Especially knowing it would be replaced

    LOL boy that would of sucked if they gave you a hassle about replacing it. They always find loop holes in warranties.

    I like the girl dancing the best. There's a soft whimsy feel to it.
    You definitely got a good eye. Your composition will get better with time and little training.
    When you are taking pictures try and think of what you want to convey in the photo.
    Perhaps its a moment you want to capture that most people wouldn't see, a mood, etc.. Think about your angles and lighting how it changes things.

    nah. When my laptop died (on its own accord!), I asked a lot of questions about how the process works because they had replaced my mom's not long before after my brother threw it into a wall... I did find out that the warranty does NOT cover water though. I have a friend that works at Best Buy and most of the employees know how the warranty works and usually destroy whatever electronic they have before it runs out.

    Either way, my D5100 with its 3 year warranty rang up at $900 give or take. I paid $400.

    I do feel like you have talent.

    I think that you need to pay attention to the background (first 1 is very cluttered) and angles (picture 3).

    Picture 1 and 3 I think are the worst two. The rest are good and some are really great...like the girl and dog. That's a great picture.

    Also, lighting is important. A few pictures are a little dark (the dog) in snow and the grey horse. The dog picture is good, but black dogs are so hard to photograph because they don't show their angles very well. And the grey horse is just a little dark overall. Looks like it was a gloomy day.

    I think you have a great start! And you are only going to improve! Do you have a local college that you could take a class from? Theyll teach you so much and if you enjoy photography, a class will be am absolute breeze!
