Default C&C please!

Well, I am newer to photography, I purchased my first DSLR this summer, and I am slowly learning. I am looking for criticism and comments please.

Hi Adam, can you please break these up so it is one photo per thread and also worth posting larger here, about 750 or 800 pixels for the long side?

Thanks.

Ya sure. Also, click on the picture, that will bring you to a high-res version of it.

I know they are thumbs linking through, but also know our members and you are likely to get more replies/advice/assistance if the photo is here at a good size.

Nicely framed (which is an extremely important skill). But unfortunately, underexposed, and a total lack of detail DUE to it being underexposed.

Thanks Dave.

Well it may just be be my post-processing. I don't quite know when to stop.

Personally I like the post-processing, but I'm also not a pro, so what do I know?

Here is the picture before It met Aperture:

Your last picture is very natural looking. The best view of the lot. Not such a great view but the best of the lot.

Really? Ok. I think the non-processed image looks dull and boring, and the processed version looks more professional. Maybe I need to rethink my photography...What would a good medium be?

Your first version is to dark with too much contrast. The original, as you say, it a little dull. Try just increasing the color saturation.
