My first attempt at "astrophotography"...
Pretty dull, where's the Milky Way?
I've even used 3200 ISO at 20 seconds!

the animal shots are ok, just a little more dof would be good, stop down a bit more to get more of your subject in focus.

Indeed!

Thank you for all the help, I'm really grateful, to everybody who gave me any kind of advice, from choosing the lens to choosing the camera body.

It was pretty scary in the beggining, too many choices, felt intimidating!

I like the balance of the 2nd on, good portion of mountain to the trees line.

Are they sweep pano or stitched?

Thank you Turtle!

They're both iSweep-sweep. And I used a tripod. Hence, no stitching errors.
