    I suggest you go down to Borders(Wheelock Place)and take ALL of their photography magazines and take a seat and slowly read thru them

    practical photography. Its a UK magazine.

    how i define a good magazine? Lesser ads, more articles from professional photographers.

    I don't have any specific preferences, I would pop by the library and see what they have (usually Popular Photography and Practical Photography).

    I think one of them (Popular Photography?) has a section in which readers submit their shots and the editors would critique on them on how show how to improve- post processing wise, cropping etc. I found this section particularly useful.

    Instead of magazines, you should be picking up some books instead. Go to riceball books at parkway parade basement. Check out some of the beginner books. As well as a guide book to your specific camera model.

    Agree with DD123. Instead of magazines, which generally presume a certain level of competency, try some of the books like Scott Kelby's The Digital Photography Book series.

    Just a thought.... the Intenet is also a good source of resorces... and most of the photgraphy related mags have interesting sites and other such places too!
