My beautiful baby daughter sleeping with her teddy, I have been experiementing with various settings on Photoshop to make the contrasts richer than the default black and white option and am pretty pleased with this, all feedback and advice would be welcome.

Hi Everybody!

For Christmas 2014 I received the present I had been lusting after for years, a DSLR camera! My wonderful wife gave me a Nikon D3200 which has received five stars on almost all the reviews I have read so I was pretty excited to try it out. 
I took my new toy along to my family's traditional Christmas party and got a few nice shots;

Rosie the dog and Kayla my other half. both are shot in 'auto' mode, I know most photographers look down on those who use this mode, however I'm yet to figure out the other modes and many, many bewildering settings that the camera has. I have purchased a set of books to begin the process of learning.

A few days later I purchased a Sigma 70-300mm macro lens to get some even more detailed pictures;
I took my new lens out on a long walk around my local area in order to try it out and got some nice results;

Obviously I am very new to DSLR photography and have much to learn, any feedback and support would be much appreciated.
