    I'm still just having fun taking pictures trying to get better exposures and working on the basics. No PP done to these, need to work on taking exposures before I worry about that. Thanks for any CC advice

    I think these all look good. The purple, green and yellow remind me of Mardi Gras and I'm from LA so that's a great thing! I'd just crop some of the emptyness from the top of all of them. :)

    Well looks like you have the technique of shallow depth of field nailed pat! lol These are all good pictures but they do need to be cropped....vacant space is not needed.

    Looks like 2 and 3 had a flash maybe or additional lighting of some type. 1 and 2 need a little additional lighting, theyre alittle underexposed. These can be brightened in PP.
    I agree with vansnxtweek about dof and cropping.
    Keep shooting and posting.:thumbup:

    I like them all. But I agree with the others that they need some cropping.

    cropping is an issue for me because i'm not that great at composition yet. I end up not really knowing how much i should crop. i should be fine cropping these ones but I have more of an issue with cropping when theres people in the photograph. Also i have view nx for my nikon camera but can't find the crop tool in it.

    I used the in camera flash for all of them. I must have had it set a little low. what part is underexposed in the first 2? the flower or background

    Sorry I do see the flash, maybe its the deep color.
    Google the "Rule of Thirds" so when taking a shot you can incorporate it or if not possible crop to it. Its not wriiten in stone but a good guideline.

    yeah i 've read about the rule of thirds it's just practicing the rule i need to do! yeah the deep color was most likely me trying to match what the camera was taking to the actual color of the flowers.

    One thing i've noticed is that i forget that i wear transition eyeglasses and sometimes i think that messes with my pics.
