    I hope that I am doing this right. I am new photography and don't have the best camera but it does the job. Tell what you think.

    like the first one, its in focus and has sharp detail.

    the last one, isnt in focus... shame.

    the camera uses the metering spot in the middle of the viewfinder to focus... im guessing that the spot was just between the flowers... on the leaf

    if you look the leaf is in focus and sharp, but the petals on the flower are a little blurred.

    The main objects of interest in 1 & 4 are underexposed because the lighter backgrounds are affecting the meter too much.
    The main objects of interest in 2 & 3 have blown out highlights.

    You need to spend more time on actually looking at the pictures you have taken in a critical way before you post them.

    for someone who is new to photography and is using a compact camera I think you've done pretty well


    keep taking the pics and remember you can only get better and better

    here is one I took this afternoon. What do you think? Thank you, to those who have commented on newbie photos. I will be practising as much as i can and will be saving for a bigger and better camera. I have found a few a like but at the moment financially that won't be happening.

    like the last shot, but try it again without cutting the top of the flower off.

    I don't really find that to be a very fair thing to say to someone who is brand new to photography. Not everyone instantly has an 'eye'....it takes time to develop it.


    That being said, I don't think you are off to a bad start, Kirst, but you have a lot of learning to do. Start reading up on composition and lighting, and consciously think about these things before you take each picture. Read through these galleries, and read through the critiques of other pictures....you pic up a lot that way.
