I've just bought my first DSLR - Pentax K-m with 18-55 and 50-200 lenses. I like taking pictures of nature, landscape and architecture and of course from travelling as my travel diary.
It's a hard job to take a good picture. Can anyone suggest me some books how to take better shots?

Enjoy your photo shooting:-)

Welcome to the forum. There's a lot to learn here, but many people recommend Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.

Hi & welcome to the forum. I agree with Oldschool's recommendation of "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. Any book by Bryan Peterson will be worth the money spent.

Welcome to the forum, there are many good books out there, but do spend some time here in the forum, you might be surprised just how much knowledge is in here (not me I hasten to add).
