    My first shot with manual(on any camera) on my new nikon d3200 with standard kit lens.

    i have just ordered the nikon 50 1.8G as well, i am not into zoom photos so the fixed zoom should suit me well , any other recommendations for lenses for my new baby?

    and comments on the pic lol not dont laugh it was 3am in morning

    Looks we've both recently bought the same camera :D

    I'm no expert but to me your shot demonstrates a good amount of bokeh while remaining clear and sharp in the foreground. :)

    While I'm not a huge fan of lens flare your second to last shot with the two models gazing off camera into the distance is definitely my favourite out of this lovely set. :)

    I'll admit I've not really got any experience with portrait shots but for me your model appears a little over exposed on her face and left hand. Having said that focus is pin sharp and composition is good. You've also captured the emotional impact well with her lovely smile in my opinion. I'm sure others will be along shortly to add a further more in depth critique than I can offer. :)

    And back on topic - here's three shots I'd like to share that I took in St Andrews last Sunday I thought suited b&w best:

    My first shot I thought was quite quirky and I'd actually walked past it before thinking "this might look all right" and headed back to take the shot. I was going to make an attempt to age the last shot until I realised the energy saver light bulb kind of gives away the era :rolleyes:

    Thanks :) Exposure is probably down to me playing with the exposure, I quite like very bright images and always up the exposure slightly in LR. Might have another play in LR and reduce it very slightly :)

    I would agree with Sonea Fifer, it is a little overexposed, but nothing that couldn't be sorted out with Lightroom.

    The only thing that I don't like about the shot is the purple curtain in the background. I'm sure Raymond and Willis will agree if you're taking a portrait shot, look behind the subject for any distracting objects.

    My first photgraphs here.

    Sorry I admit I lack originaly and have been inpired by what I've seen here, in particular Devrij's water circle and a few others.

    Anyway, here's my attempt. No where near as good but hey.

    Played around with bracketing and HDR. The church tower need adjusting slightly which I'll do this weekend but otherwise, I'm happy with the results.



    Stunning shots, in particular the last one I quoted above. the tone sets the mood perfectly. Very aspiring.
