    I couldn't decide whether to go with the People and Pets forum or this one, but since some wouldn't consider these pets, here goes:

    These are all either pictures of my saltwater aquarium inhabitants, or plants in my house or yard.

    1) [​IMG] - Tube Worm

    2) [​IMG] - Clown Goby ( About 1" long in real life)

    3) [​IMG]

    4) [​IMG] - An orchid

    5) [​IMG] - A mushroom coral

    6) [​IMG] - A flower... don't know what kind.

    All photos were taken with my Canon EOS Rebel XT with a Canon 18-55mm lens, manual focus. Edited with Picasa.

    Critique is quite welcome. I just got my new camera last week, so I'm new t othe DSLR thing. Thanks for looking.

    try to avoid putting the subject in the center all the time, that seems to be a common theme in your photos

    9) [​IMG]

    10) [​IMG]

    11) [​IMG]

    12) [​IMG]

    All these were taken with the 50 mm. On #12, I flipped the lens in reverse so I could get in closer to the leaf for a neat effect.
