    Hello everyone, new to this forum. Just got a canon rebel for my birthday last weekend, so very new to this. I just wanted to post a couple pics to see if im going in the right direction. These are right out of the camera as I haven't been able to get a editing program yet. Anyway please comment away :)

    Welcome to the forum!

    You might want to read through some of the tutorials here. In particular, the tutorials on exposure. You may also want to look up "the rule of thirds" (basically, you rarely want your subject in the middle of your image).

    I think those will help you a lot. They definitely helped me.

    In Auto Exposure mode you wind up with a P&S camera that allows you to change the lens.

    As mentioned some good first steps are to learn a little about photographic composition;

    Photographic composition techniques are used to set up the elements of a picture.
    The six main techniques are:

    My two cents...

    I find the background in #2 to be quite distracting. So I though a re-crop might be in order....

    Plus 1 on the backgrounds and cropping. Framing it properly in the camera, means you don't need to crop which entails throwing away pixels.
    Photography is all about light.
    A truism in the visual arts is "light advances and dark recedes."

    For example:
