    I'm very new, so trying to learn slowly
    was trying to figure out how to get a decent exposure while shooting on manual.
    wasn't overly concerned with composition, as my model was less than cooperative.
    I used an aperature of 5.6 and adjusted shutter speed until the camera was showing a good exposure (on that -2---------0----------+2 thing (sorry for the ignorance, I'm a sloow learner)
    middle of the day (say around 3?) and we were in the shade.

    constructive criticism greatly appreciated
    thanks!

    While I can't be of much assistance on the main point, you want to enclose the link to the image in [img][/img] tags to embed it in your post. :)

    I would say that you suceeded; your subject is sharply focused, and while her hat is slightly brighter than would be ideal, her face is perfectly exposed, and the background is nicely out of focus.

    I definitely love the depth of field on this. I also like how you framed it (having the subject at the far left). The only thing I might change is that there appears to be a boulder of some kind in the back ground that appears near the rim of her cap. If that wasn't there, I think she might pop out of the picture even more? Just a thought. Otherwise, wonderful job!
