New at Photography, could use some pointers :)

About two years ago, my dad bought my mom a Nikon D5000 to replace her old film camera, and well I think I get more use out of it then she does I love playing around with it and editing pictures. I'm saving my money up for a better zoom lens because it came with a 18-55mm lens. I've been asked to do some pet photography for family & friends so I'm trying to experiment more with different shots and techniques. Let me know how I can improve! (Ignore some of my editing, I love to play with different effects)

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

Animal photography in my opinion is the hardest. I dont have any critique, keep shooting (:

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

I like them . Especially the horse one.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
