    Feel more than free to comment on anything that I've done! Some shots were modified using software, but most are straight from the CF card. I really need to start cropping and "presenting" an actual picture, I do know that.

    I'm a wee tired, so I'll just restrict my comments to the first one (word of advice, whenever asking for C&C, limiting the number of pictures you present at a time is good, so that people viewing don't say "oh dear heavens no, I'm not commenting on all that" ;) ).

    Anyway, the first photo looks underexposed, and given that those flowers are white, it might have been wise to use highlight tone priority. I see you're shooting with the Canon 400D, which should have HTP. You shot that at f/10, so you could easily bump up the exposure by stopping-up the aperture and in the process get a shallower depth-of-field to bring out the subject more. I also get the sense that you might have been trying to get the flower(s) in the centre as the subjects, but they get lost in background clutter. Choosing a more contrasting background, by repositioning yourself to get the other flowers more out of the way, will work wonders.

    Thanks for the advice, I do appreciate all of it. That picture wasn't exactly my favorite, but it stuck out for me even if it just reminded me of the flowers in real life haha. I really should have moved to a different angle, but would have most likely peeved off the owner of the property :(
