This is an accident shot, focus wrongly, but the end result is very interesting....

I am still newbie too...

But I felt the pix is not sharp at all...
may be the weather or my note book monitor is blur...:think:

Anyway I think is better for you select those pix you like best and post it.
there are too many.. and I felt some pix is a mess (Dont mind I said that:embrass:)

I think you need to work on the composition and what you really want to shot.
the way I see it... is you just shot and shot....without any idea what you really want to show or express in the pix....

Anyway let us improve...:bsmilie:

Whoa, that's a lot of pictures there..

#56 and #61 caught my eye. #56 has extreme potential because of the water shooting through the light (in a way) -- just that the focus was a bit off and/or there wasn't enough depth of field.

Personally, I think you need to work on 'seeing art'. Most people are not interested in normal everyday snapshots-- you have to have something special and meaningful in the picture to attract people to see it as art.

I agree with the above users. Two glaring shortcomings here : Lack of sharpness and point of interest. I think you lost sharpness when resizing/resampling. My opinion,shots 1-20 and a few in between had nothing going in them and the exposure was off in almost all the shots. I take it that you didn't do much or any post-processing. I'm not a big fan of PP,but if it brings life in an otherwise dull image,then by all means do it. I'm not a pro either,still have a lot to learn. Dont worry,you will get there and everyone learns from their mistakes.

When I click on this post, I almost faint. :eek:
But it is ok, this is your first touch of a DSLR. :bsmilie:
The excitement is there to take a lots of pictures and share a lot.

First resize your pictures. Maybe to 640x480.
If the picture is of the same scene and subject, only choose one.
If you find the picture is blur, too bright or too dark, just delete it.
If you shoot 70 pictures, maybe just choose 10 to post.
Posting 70 pictures, most people will just close the page and move to the next thread.
When you look through the viewfinder, think what is your main focus before you press the shutter. Remove as much other distractions as possible.
Good luck and happy shooting. :)
