    I know I've made some compostion errors... missing tops of heads, arms cut off... I'm still struggling with focus and exposure and all that stuff so any help would be great.

    nicely done Elly ... and obviously a good photographer is who realizes what he/she messed up on him/herself.
    i agree with mitchimoo ... 2nd shot is a perfect portrait shot :D

    Phil Flash. He's a terrific guy and he can help your photos out immensely, so go talk to him.

    And there are no rules. I've seen tight crops from famous photographers that have body parts cut off and everyone praises them. Why? Because their famous.
