Smile Hey guys, check out my photos!

Well, Ive been into photography for a while now, and I finaly made the decision to get really into it.

I bought myself a Nikon D80 with an 18-55mm AF-S lens.

Id like to share:

Any constructive critisism is appreciated

Oh, and (this is mainly targeted toward JBaz lol, but chip in if you want) Im thinking of buying an SB-600 external flash next, I want to do same off-camera lighting and other things like that. Good idea? or are there better things to spend the money on before that?

Thanks!





Edit: spelling...oops

They look good. Been dabbling in photos myself. Bought myself a DLSR a few months back since I really wasn't getting what I wanted out of a point-and-shoot

I kinda like the watch one with full color. The car pic actually felt like it was missing the markings of a doughnut in the frame. Not that I encourage that kinda thing

Those pics are sweet. Just curious... have you tried anything with editing them? I have a ton of pics of horizons and sunsets, and I've found that they can look VERY sweet with just a touch of darkening, or changing the heu.

Here is an example of what I am talking about. I took a picture of a horizon from the interstate one day. I then went to color ballance... Faded all the way to Cyan and Magenta, then turned the blue all the way up on the midtones and the shadows, and turned the lightness back -100... resulting in the picture below it.








Took me 3 seconds. If you take your time to adjust everything, you can come out with some insanely cool effects. Especially with darkening pictures you take in the fog. It is simply, and the change is minor... but sometimes it also helps to clean up the look. Example:

you use Gimp? I am addicted to that program. It is basically a free open-source version of Photoshop.
