Let me start off my saying that all pictures were taken with a Nikon D40 with the 18-55mm Kit lens.

All but one of these pictures was taken at the San Antonio, TX. Zoo US

#1)This is the my least favorite mainly because its a 100% crop but still not to bad and it should make a good 4x6 print.
Image

#2)I like this one because of the small bug on the leaf... its another 100% crop but still looks better than the Lion picture in my opinion.
Image

#3)A mother duck, her 2 ducklings and a following of Koi. I love the way the water is rippling around the ducks and the bright color of the fish.
Image

#4)The Kit lens handles close-ups pretty well... I almost stepped on this fellow coming out of my apartment.
Image

#5)This shot is probably my favorite not because of the bird but because of the lighting and shadows.
Image

#6)And finally the bright colors of this Lori in contrast with its bland surroundings.
Image

I think, all and all, for a person who is very new to dSLR photography that the pictures turned out very well.

Please share your opinions.

**edit** Numbered the photos.

5 & 3 Would be my fav :) On these other photography forums I go on, they number there photos, helps alot :P

I must say quite nice outcomes from a D40 and kit lens :) How come you didn't crop #1 before you post? Bit crooked as well :P.

The last one doesn't seem sharp enough enough to me. Don't know if it's just me or....

All and all dude, nice job :) I like the little storys at the top of each photo hehe.

Keep posting, I should be posting pics when I get my D80 tomorow :)


EDIT : Wow I like my smilies.

Actually #1 is cropped, I used the wrong verbiage I suppose. It does look crooked but I assure you its not, the shape of the habitat does make it look a bit off however.

The Lori (last one) doesn't seem as sharp as it should have been but ill chalk that up to my inexperience.

In the future I will place numbers at the pictures..

**edit** I edited numbers in :)

Still missing your signature, antman. It's about time!
b.t.w.: #2+3+4 are my favorites!

Very nicely done!! I love the "Kois in hot duck-pursuit" scene :-)

My favorite is #5 as well - there is a lot of drama in that image. The D40's punchy colors strike again!

#1 I can't see..shows "this photo is currently unavailable".

Thanks for sharing - a great start for someone who claims to be "a person who is very new to dSLR photography"

Cheers!

Hi Brate,

Really great images but could I request that you resize them as necessary to comply with the posting guidelines which
suggest a maximum width of 700 pixels. Wider images destroy the text formatting for posts created by other
members, not all of whom have wide monitors or browser windows. Remember that you can always link
to the full size pictures, either by the [url=..][img]..[/img][/url] syntax or by adding a text hyperlink.

Thanks for you understanding.

Bob.
