    The important thing is to only put up links that end in .jpg ... picture links that don't have this ending cannot load.

    Well, to me they all look overexposed, and the white balance is off...
    #1 looks very noisy to me... not sure why.

    Hmmm, they are a bit noisy. Did you have the ISO way up?

    #1: Try not to cut off the top (and left) of the flower.

    #2: That leaf is annoying, lol. Also, try angles that are closer to the ground. Straight down shots tend to look snapshotty.

    #3: I like this one the best of the 3. However, it's over exposed. See how the petals are bright white with no detail? I would have also liked it more if you had gone about 2-3 inches to the left so that second bunch of flowers were in the shot.

    Not bad. You may want to read about the "rule of thirds" and composition in general. That's the nice thing about flowers, though. They'll still be there to try again!

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    My camera is a P & S one, so have very little control about things such as white balance, ISO, and exposure. I will try to see if I can make the background less noisy. Also the first two were taken in a center garden at the library roadway that didn't allow me access to all of the flowers because it lacked paths.
