    You've got good composition & keen sense of leading the viewers eyes to the subject and also telling the viewer what you're trying to portray, keep shooting

    I like # 2 as well
    And I agree with espn about your abilities, what you need now is lighting/exposure
    on this journey, far you will go

    Finally, we agree on something!!!

    No need to worry too much on exposure now, I quite like the moods based on the dull colours for the images you're trying to portray. It fits.

    we agree on many things, just that it has not been discussed.
    I am no where near you when it comes to knowledge about Nikon equipment.
    I take your word for it.

    Cheers

    thanks for the positive comments but there seems to be still a long way to go in achieving super richly satuarated colours and creative use of exposure... hope can join you all for the outings and learn.

    thanks again

    Very good try for a newbie, keep it up but watch the lightings on the contrasty subjs. You should also play around with PS or NCE on various effects and adjustments to keep you going.

    Great

    The view outside your window is out of focus. Not sure where your focus point is cause even the grill looks blur.

    Gives me the overall impression that you're under house arrest or something. Remember that freedom is just beyond those grills. Take your D70s out for a spin or join the photo outings here and you'll really be having real fun with your cam!

    hi, some interesting angles you have there.
    but i think you need to run your pictures through PS, give some of the colors a big of push.

    is running thru PS a norm? i was afraid it makes pple think that the photography skills sucks and need it to boost it up (actually my skills not anywhere near good also la )..... is it possible to achieve spectacular images (interms of contrast, tonality and colours) by skills alone??
