Hey guys took my dslr out for the first time. Trying to get better at using it. How does this shot of the window look? Is there anything I can do in light room to make it look better? Thanks! -Dan

If it's your first time out with a DSLR maybe I'm right in assuming you're new to the ideas of composition. If that's the case give Josh Cripps' videos on YouTube a go.

He is a landscape photgrapher but a lot of the ideas still apply and he makes videos easy to follow and not remotely boring.

There are loads more on his channel but I watched them over and over in the beginning and they really helped.

With respect to the photo I think it's a little plain, perhaps coming back a little bit more and making the most of those peeling textures to the right may have helped.

If you're unsure on things in Lightroom - YouTube again is your friend, my man.

Good luck.

If you are knew to a DSLR, I would recommend learning about your camera and what it does. The best way to do this is to learn about the exposure triangle and a couple composition elements. Best of luck.

Also, this is a really great photo.
