    Any comments and criticism would be most appreciated. All of the pictures were shot with the Nikon D40, most with the kit lens. I will put more pictures on my Flickr page once I finish editing all of them.

    Thanks

    Quickly, they're all seriously under exposed as far as I can tell.

    I was thinking they were dark and saturated because the photographer likes them that way, artistic choice. Looks to my eye more like post processing adjustment then unintentional under exposure. It's a reasonable style. Don't think i would have done the same but I can't say it's "wrong".

    I've using a cruddy uncalibrated monitor right now so I can't say more

    Ridiculously underexposed.

    BUT the 3rd and 4th pictures are taken from the 14th street Apple Store so that's cool...

    For a second there, I thought they were taken with the iPhone. Did you post processed to make the photos look underexposed, oversaturated, and add corner darkness (vignetting). If they are intentional, I am not crazy about your choices. If not, you should learn to use your camera better. At least take them in RAW format so that you can better correct them later.

    Grossly underexposed and oversaturated, and to no benefit, in my opinion. Monitor problem, maybe?

    @ Chris, fair enough. I guess that was my first impression.

    Anyway, ok I don't mean to sound like a jerk but overall, none of them have a focal point. I see them but I don't see what the point of any of the images was. At best, the 4th photo has something to offer by way of just snapping a shot of the scene, showing NYC. Otherwise, I am really unsure.

    Besides the fact that they're underexposed and oversaturated I also don't like the fact that you can see reflections from the windows you were shooting through in the 3rd and 4th. They also don't seem very sharp, but that could just be the high jpeg compression. They could also benefit from a better light, cloudy day is not the best for taking these kind of shots.

    Could the OP just have serious gamma problems?

    If you've shot in RAW, I'd play with your post-production software to see if you can play up what's in the shadows.

    If you've shot direct to JPG... I guess I'd have to hope you're happy with the results.

    I go there a lot. And the diner across the street (the yellow roof in the picture) is one of my favorite restaurants. I recommend the grilled cheese and tomato soup BTW.
