OK has nothing to do with firearms but I had my PF-9 with me so it counts right? I thought I would try to capture some of the landscape in my travels in the petrolium industry. All done with my Nikon D3100. Tell me what you think!

Drilling rigs and pump jacks are all about as dynamic a photography subject as a tree stump. Almost all industrial stuff comes across the same way. Nothing personal, it's just the subject matter. I bet you'll get a lot further if you focus on the landscapes and wildlife.
You seem to have a good eye for unusual land and sky, so just keep honing those skills. I really like the way you capture the unusual clouds!
Good luck with the Nikon. Keep shooting, keep shooting and have fun!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Kinda looks like a lot of the land around here

Nice. I once dabbled in photography and appreciate the starkness of black and white and gray scale stuff. It isn't all about colour.
Sometimes the bleakness of a subject can project a very good image. Landscapes in b&w also are nice. Even some people photographed like that can be interesting.
Keep shooting, the more you do, the better you will get. Just like firearms!
