    Not only am I new to the forum, but new to photography in general. I have recently purchased a Fujifilm S5200. It isn't a great camera, but all I could afford. I know nothing about photography, but have fun doing it. Just htought I would post a picutre so you all know where I'm coming from. I took this in Missouri about 3 weeks ago on a family vacation.

    Please tell me what I need to change. If you want, change it for me and repost. Thanks for the help and advice

    Welcome to the forum

    You will get more response if you display the image on the forum, rather than just a link.

    Use the IMG button and paste the URL into there...or just copy the code right from Photobucket...the one with [ IMG ] tags.

    That's better...now if were only a little bigger :lol:

    I like the images, it looks to be nice a sharp and the shallow DOF makes the background blurry, which keeps attention on the subject. I might be temped to crop off the top of the image...down to the top of the flower.

    Very nice depth of field and composition, I would also recommend cropping the top of the photo down to where the flower starts. Nice photo :D

    I agree with JJP, the thing at the top distracted me from seeing the bee on the flower. Think about trying to compose keeping the subject out of the center in the future. Nice capture over all.

    The B&W is a nice start but maybe spend some time masking seeing as you have gotten a little sloppy around parts of the flower.
