    Hello and welcome to TPF.

    People (in general, not only on TPF) tend to be lazy, and won't click on a link to see your Flickr if you ask for comment and criticism. Why don't you post 2-3 pictures directly on here for specific C&C (see here if you don't know how do to it)?

    That being said, I had a quick look at your pictures. I think you need to make sure the subject is more obvious and stands out more in the picture. Most of your pictures have very busy backgrounds, which are quite distracting. You could improve your pictures by shooting more neutral backgrounds or using a shallow depth of field to throw the background out of focus.

    To imbed an image from Flickr. Go to the picture you want to use from Flickr and click on "All Sizes" (above your picture). Select the size you want to display and then look below the picture for the #2 box that says "Grab the photo's URL:". Highlight to select it and then right click the selection and hit Cut (or Copy). Now go back to the TPF (The Photo Forum) post you want to imbed the image in. Click on the orange and grey icon above the message box (the one that looks like a tree with a camera in the front of it). In the box that pops up, paste the URL in box (make sure you only have 1 "http://" in the URL line before you hit the Ok button). Hit the Ok button. Click on the "Preview Post" button to see if your picture is imbedded in the post.

    Greetings. I would agree completely with Steph. You need to simplify, simplify, simplify. Everytime you look through your camera you need to imagine the image on your computer screen and think about what kind of impact the image will make. Take the shot you had of a cat in profile. Image how different that shot woul dbe if instead of having all those table legs (or chair legs, or whatever) behind it, if you just had a plain wall. In fact, I can see some red on a wall in the background. If you just had the cat in front of a plain red wall the image would be much stronger.

    Hope that helped.
