    Ok, so you know not to put a subject directly in the middle all of the time. Well, I'm here to tell you that you can still leave a little bit more room on the sides, :thumbup:

    It's good for a first picture, trust me. I also think a little more of the grass in the front as opposed to so much sky would make this even better.

    Try again. Since this isn't a space ship blasting off or a dog flying, I'm sure you can set this up again. Good first try. Also, get yourself a better photo editor. I know I never even worked with photobucket when I was just starting out... Photoscape is not as difficult as Photoshop to just start out with, and it even lets you adjust curves 'n levels 'n all. It'll just help you get used to more options, and plus, it's free.

    Here are two of my shots that have the same general idea as yours. I wish the sky wasn't washed out. Didn't feel like messing around with these in PS though.

    wow i wish i had that kind of camera with the zoom in only on the one object you're focusing on. that's only an option for good cameras right?

    I used macro mode for both of those shots. You don't need a "good" camera for that. Many have that function.
