    I'm just a beginner but these are some shots I've made that I'm pretty happy with. I'd love to hear what people think and take any pointers that you might have. No need to be polite, I'm here to learn so brutal honesty is welcome.

    The flower is an attempt at macro, the actual flower is about the diameter of a pencil eraser.

    The last two were taken with an old point and shoot, so for those aren't technically very good but I'd be curious what people think of the composition.

    I love the macro shot and the arch. They only thing that I can say, that others may tell you, is to not center your photos all the time. That's the only thing I can think of right this minute.

    love 1,2, and 4.

    #1 is my favorite, its awesome - although I feel it needs straightening and agree with the comment on centering.

    thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the positive feedback!

    Funny I didn't notice the first picture wasn't straight but it does stand out quite a bit once you notice it.

    Thanks for the tip on centering. It's hard to fight that instinct since the first thing you generally want to do when taking a snap shot is to put whatever your subject is dead in the middle of your viewfinder. That'll be something I need to remember to work on.

    TRUE, one of the nice things with your shots is that you have a ton of room to crop the centered things off too, or down too, or up too any side. The quality of the pics is great, and with some small changes the composition can/will also be.

    1 & 2- great colors, and I like the placement of the boat in the foreground. Their seems to be a little bit of flare around the sun, however, which I think can be done without
    3- good first macro, I like the offset composition
    4- very interesting perspective
    5- seems a little too plain, it just doesn't do anything for me the way it is now

    4 is my favorite, I really like the unique perspective

    Good eye on these shots, a little editing to some of them and they can be great.

    dittio I was thinking the same thing. It makes it more interesting sometimes not to center your shot. Try playing around with how you center shots more.

    I see some dust spots, if they are on your lens I would clean them.

    Nice shots.
