    You seem to be falling into the centering your subject trap. Google the Rule of Thirds and Photography Composition, and step up to the next level.

    I kinda like the bicycle shot.

    Thank you, you are the second person that has told me that already, so I am learning a lot. Hopefully I can work on the bicycle technique where I can getting the moving object perfectly still and clear

    2nd picture - now I'm new and very new to figuring out what is wrong but it looks to me like the focus is on the right side of the picture and not the bee too

    Yeah I noticed it too. I didn't mean to post it in this thread, but I accidently did. I am pretty sure I took all of these with Autofocus. I tried going out tonight and getting some slower shutter speed pics with a car, on a tripod, but I couldn't figure it out/time it right.

    How do people get good night shots using the ambient lighting, no flash?

    this technique your referring to is called "panning" if you do a search here on the forum, or on google, you will find some great guides on how to do it.

    Yeah, I watched one today. Thanks for telling me what it is called though.

    Another question, is where and how do I find all the info on the photo's, like the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO?

    You mean exif data; get an add-on for firefox or IE (or whatever browser you are using). Not sure what they are called but just google for it.

    There is a really good EXIF reader you can download for free at www.opanda.com and another that can also write EXIF/IPTC info at www.photome.de

    Actually my dad has one on his computer, I just need one for mine now. But on my dads computer, when we were looking at them, it didn't say the shutter speed. Only the aperture and ISO

    Great start, the 3rd bee shot is superb, try to remember just like a story, a picture needs a who, what, when, where and why..
