    Ok so I took everyone's advice and i went out and bought the book Understanding Exposure. I been reading it off and on the past few days and today decided to take a break and go take some pictures.

    I myself think I have improved somewhat atleast.. What does everyone think? What can I do to make them better? This was the first time I took all the photos in "M" mode.

    Thanks everyone

    I really liked #6

    Are you using a tripod? A lot of the pictures look either slightly out of focus or camera shake. In most cases, it's not a good idea to have a shutter speed slower than 1/60 while holding your camera. Just so happened that the one I liked and #7, were the only ones at a speed above 1/30
    They both seem to be good, no problems that I could see.
    Hmm.

    I agree with xamblin about the tripod etc. Regarding embedding images you need to put [​IMG]

    6 is definitely the best. The flowers that are in focus seem really sharp, personally I'd have focused on the one with the bug though.

    The exposures are better than last time but most lack a point of interest. Try to think about the composition of your shots more, decide what it is that interests you in the shot then think how best to draw the viewers eye to it. Look at the shots posted on the forum and ask yourself why they're good or bad plus read everyone else's comments. There's some talented, knowledgeble people on here so try to soak in some of the information going around.

    Resin thanks for the advice, I will try that next time I go out to shoot some pictures. I am really having trouble deciding which lense to use as well. I have a 14-45mm & 40-150mm. They both seem to do the same thing so I never know which to use. All those pictures that I listed above are with the 14-45mm
