Got my first DSLR today and i thought i would go for a walk down to the sea front via the park.
Im sorry if this is in the wrong section but i could think of one more suited.

Bare in mind iv not used a dslr because and im still learning how to use the thing (soooo confusing lol)

Anyway, Not sure on the settings used because i was fiddling to much.

Hope the sizing isnt to big!

I would suggest you get a flickr account because thus we can check out the EXIF data of your shot, for exampel i could have takena look how you shot this shot for exampel

I had no idea what i was doing at first when i got my frst DSRL ever, i would recomend that u get a UV filtr/lens if you dont already have one, a good thing to ahve to protect the glass you can pick them up for cheap at bestbuy for like $10.

Auto was what i started out with, then i was moving over to P, and now its mainly M,A,S pretty crazy! Learnig how to manualy focusing as well, which is kinda hard.

Just keep taking some shots and think of composition first and then we can start to talk about the techinacal aspects!

Contrast.

Very lacking in this photo. And I'm curious why you decided to take an image of the back of the monument/statue.

When starting off, try this: leave the camera on auto and take an image. Check it in the LCD screen and see what settings the camera decided to use. You can then replicate those settings manually and then make small adjustments to find out what your changes are making. Word of warning though - only change 1 or 2 things at a time so you can keep track of what you've done and what effects you're achieving.

There are many guides on the internet that will be able to guide you through what a change in aperture might do to your image, shutter speeds .etc. Take a look at those (maybe even Gordon's dslrtips.com) or at past threads here. And there'll be many who will be willing to help you on your path of learning on here - so don't be afraid to ask questions.

Thx for the advise,
i decided to take the picture from the behind because the pond is there in front of it, so i thought it was kind of nice, angel of the lake type thing.

Like i said, these were just auto. nothing done to them because i wasnt sure what i was doing
