Out walking with my camera

I decided I wanted to practice with some photography and editing.  So I decided to go out walking with my camera yesterday.   And these are some of the pictures I took of the winter foliage around my neighborhood.  Then I played with them a little just to see what I could do and how they would turn out.  There are several pictures here and I hope you don't mind viewing them and letting me know which ones you like and/or critiquing me and giving me some comments or suggestions. 

I am a novice at this and just want to learn more about digital photography, editing, as well as learning all the functions of my camera. 

I did have fun and the getting out and breathing some fresh air made me feel so much better.

Beautiful! I love the different effects.
I'm not a great photographer, but have an awesome camera. I start a photography class tonight for the next 8 weeks. I'm pretty excited.

I need to take better pictures. I just feel like I don't have time to learn right now. Then, down the road I will regret not learning sooner when I have boring pictures to look at:). You did a great job and way to brave the cold!
