    Red face My Collection....

    I've been a lurker here for some time. I've always loved photography and when I got hired at Best Buy as a Digital Imaging associate I was hooked.

    I bought my first SLR (unfortunately it was the D40) and get to play around with all the new cameras (Canons 30D that I'm buying next year).

    After studying and stuff and going way out of my way to research each and every camera I got promoted to DI specialist :p But enough bout that, here's some stuff I've taken since I've purchased the Nikon D40.

    Any comments are appreciated!!

    Like I said any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I'm still fairly new and have a lot to learn as far as specific settings and probably lighting.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hi! Welcome to CA, I am your customer service representative, Klips. Subtly, every aeroplane is different... *ahem* sorry, been spending too much time on planes recently. Anyway, welcome, good to see another lurker becoming a poster

    You have a very good eye, now train it we must. You certainly have some standouts (for me), including numbers 2, 7 (this was particularly good), 9 and 10 (I'm a sucker for sunsets). I'd like to see number 3 as a b+w, I think that might work well.

    Kep shooting, keep posting, and good luck on your photographic journey.

    Now a Canon wench, but still rocking the Pentax styles as well until little red lines start appearing around my lenses.

    Mmmh, I love your photos

    7 is positively lovely - 3 does seem better in B&W imho

    The creepy pictures are also great - but I really canít figure out whatís going on with the last one... are those just random bits of ceiling hanging down? and if so what on earth are you on, a balcony or something?
    Iím quite confused

    It's in a cell. It's bits and pieces of plaster hanging from hooks on the ceiling? It's weird..if u look at the underside there are drawings.

    I really didn't find out what they were for. I think someone told me that a class made them.. still it doesn't make any sense.

    Thank you all!

    I only had one from today that I liked. And I felt bad for sneaking into a cemetary :p

    I think I like it better in Sepia. What do you think?

    beautiful stuff, i prefer 21 that 20, 17 is a nice one too, i say nice, its old and crumbling, but its a clever shot, the ones where you have the main item clear and the rest blurred are stunning, especially the dog, im trying to do that but as yet i cant work out my camera setting...(ma bad) anyway keep up the amazing photography

    ps; AWESOME SUNSETS!

    Solid stuff. I agree with most of klips comments about your stand outs.

    The lighting and texture in 2 makes it interesting, and the perspective and composition work great in 7.

    B&W definately helps 11. In the color version my eye skipped over the men in the foreground and was instead drawn first to the bright colors of the sky and flags, after which I lost interst. With the B&W I first focus on the man to the far left, then the man in the center, then to the rest of the shot. Since the two men in the foreground are the obvious subjects of the shot and are where most of the interest lies, the "flow" of the B&W is preferrable, IMO.

    16 makes for an interesting shot, if a bit chaotic.

    I love the "feel" of 19 the lighting and color mixed with the surreal subject makes for a cool shot.

    All in all I think 7 is the one that jumps out at me the most. Those little tricks with perspective are just always fun .

    I agree about Number 11. Number 7 will always be one of my favorites!

    Number 19 is quite unique.
