    Hello forum, my name is Tony and this is my first post. I took this picture last weekend while blueberry picking with my family. I am still very much a beginner, figuring out my new Nikon D60, which is my first DSLR (upgraded from a Sony P&S). I welcome any comments!

    If you want critiques, you should post the image in the forum and not a link to flickr. Few people will follow the link.

    I'm fairly new as well, but the first thing that I noticed was that the blueberry was dead-center, which doesn't really work very well for the subject, IMO (maybe if it took up more of the frame, it would look better centered)

    A thread about a great composition article was just posted here - specifically, check out the "rule of thirds"

    Second, it looks like some of the stems farther up on the branch are in sharpest focus, whereas the blueberry itself looks a little soft.

    Hope that's worth something ;)

    The blueberry appears a bit out of focus to me as well. Maybe you can get a little closer and take the shot with the highest possible aperture your lens will allow (I believe the D60 kit lens is F3.5). This will allow for a faster shot and may sharpen it up a bit.
