    Not really sure why you bothered posting the pic of your girlfriend, you already gave us your own c&c on it (and you were right, it is terribly blurry and/or out of focus. It also has a lot of noise and the white balance is off).

    Hopefully you will look back on this post in a few months and be amazed at how you've improved.

    c&c = comments and criticisms

    OK I see you didn't specifically ask for c&c but I guess I'm in the habit of giving it anyway. People posting in the beginners forum usually want comments on their photos.

    hmm try bumping up the iso. if the shutter speed is too slow, you will get camera shake if not on a tripod. i would HIGHLY recommend reading the book "Understanding Exposure"

    Picture 2:

    Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION
    Camera Model: NIKON D3000
    Image Date: 2010:02:01 03:29:49
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 55.0mm (35mm equivalent: 82mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.200 s (1/5)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv: 1600
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix

    Exif data shows ISO 1600, wide open aperture and 1/5 second shutter speed. You probably just needed more light in order to bump the ISO down a bunch and get your shutter speed into a reasonable range.

    Going by the EXIF, #2 is most likely camera shake. 1/5 sec is really slow for hand held, especially @ 55mm. Welcome to the forum!

    You are wasting your time and ours shooting inside with a kit lens, get outside and shoot where there is light
