    There is something about that bird shot that doesn't look right to me. It almost looks like the bird has been cut from another photo and added to the blue sky. The top of the bird (between it and the tree) looks unnaturally sharp. Maybe it's the compression on the image size or something that caused it.

    I like the composition and the look on the birds face but...

    Ya know, I am still very much a novice when it comes to photography and post-processing. I read "The Digital Photography Book" by Scott Kelby cover to cover a few nights ago and am noticing dramatically better pictures. I am changing settings in-camera that I never even thought about before the read. Things like using an actual White Balance as opposed to the Auto setting, exposure compensations, trying to find the aperature at which my lens is sharpest, using the Highlights feature to get my exposure right, trying different framings, angles, etc. Just by understanding and utilizing some of these in-camera features, my pictures seem to have jumped leaps and bounds in just a couple days. I have the Field Guide for the D40/D40x coming too which is getting great reviews. I learn best by reading, then going hands-on. Sorry to ramble, but I recommend reading as much as possible to any novice on this board. I just wish I had done it 6 months ago!

    honestly when i saw this, i was blown away.
    i love it.

    all you can do is try and nail the focus, nail the exposure and hope for the rest. you did all of that so theres nothing to be disappointed at mate.

    Couldn't agree more I only read the first two lines of what DPR wrote and then proceeded to skim the pictures. My thoughts were OK on shell image but the bird image that's really good. Looks like he caught the golden evening sunset light. Well Done DPR
    I thought about who I am... and realized I was an
    unformed, unreconciled imagery, without "GOD"

    and some other Nikon stuff

    Rooz, that expression of your son, mainly the mouth, reminded me of Dave Hughes. Great shot. His eyes are so nice to look at.
