    I have taken many more images in the last couple days than are right here, but I think these are some of the better ones. I have also only been taking my photography seriously for the past week or so. Please tell me what you think, what would you change? Is there a pattern of mistakes? Please don't hold back :)

    I am using a Canon Power Shot SD550. I have only just started to look into DSLR.

    Im a noob just learning myself but Imo you did more than fine, Fish tanks shots are not that easy for me and yours are very good. I would shoot my first pic with my point and shoot and blind myself with the flash hitting the glass.

    good line

    Actually the OP is missing out on critique that would really help because there are so many pictures. Thus, none of them get the detailed scrutiny and comment that would be beneficial.

    Be nice, it's pretty and you know it. Just try to get over the fact that it comes from a car make with a bad rep...just wish it wasn't so slow ;)

    Now with the pics, I guess I was looking for general problems, things that I continue to do through all or most of the pics, that's why I brought this to the general gallery and not the critique section.

    I guess I am learning more and more about this forum with each post. So would you say I should go through, pic my favorite pic up to date and bring it to the critique section?

    Boy, you've covered everything. From cars, to sea anemonies, flowers and water abstracts. Nice set of images, Bear.

    Heya Bear, welcome!

    As to the amount of photos posted and your question on The Critique Forum: that is restricted to ONE photo only. Feel free to choose one you are most keen to get some deeper critiquing and re-post it there.

    As a general remark to photos being posted in The General Gallery, and one directed to about everyone: give yourselves a restriction as to how many photos you want to post in one post. My feeling is that 8 is a good number - but in posting 8 photos, I would already ask you to please NUMBER your photos, which makes commenting a lot easier.

    Your photos here, Bear, could have been broken up into several themes, such as flowers and plants (for Landscape and Nature), aquarium photos, car photography, abstract photography. You would still have offered us series, for us to look for on-going flaws that show in all your photos (which is what you are asking for, aren't you?), but the posts would have been smaller and better "manageable" for the viewers, see? ;)

    You will get plenty of critique at the level you will find useful here in this section. Just post a few or a single picture(s) and the viewers will be able
    concentrate more.
