Hi. This is my first attempt at a closeup with my D50. Not great, but I like it.

nice shots and Good subjects, that flower would make a nice print but perhaps rotated toportrait rather than landscape.

I am surprised how much better photos look in print than they do on the screen, i took a real heavy crop on a woodpecker photo and it gavea really excellent 7 x 5 print,I will try to print it bigger, just to experiment with the limitations of cropping for reproduction.

Did you take these with the 18-55 kit lens ?

The lily was taken with the 50mm f/1.8 lens - not much available light.

The seagull was taken in very bright midday sunlightwith the 18-200 VR lens.

I too amazed at thedifference in print and onscreen.I can see a differencewhen I resize as well.

Thanks for your comments! I really appreciate it!

Hi Mare,

These are very nice photos. I like them both a whole lot, although my favorite is the lily. A portrait setting for it would set it off rather nicely, but I feel that the present landscape setting also does justice to it.

'can't wait to get my hands on one of these D-50's :-).

Thanks for the comments! I am also in learning-mode, Deb...I just keep taking tons of shots, not even knowing about settings, etc., and some are bound to come out right!

Be of good cheer!
