    Just getting back in to the hobby. Would love to hear comments as to how I can improve the below. I need to learn PP - still reading the Photoshop books.

    I think they are all great pictures based on clarity, exposure, and focus. I think the first three flower/plant ones could be more artistically pleasing. Especially the wheat looking plant, I think it would look really nice if you had more of a background that you could blur out with a low f value.

    But they are most definitely very high quality pics!:thumbup:

    Thank you. These really are the first true photographs I've taken in years so I am sure they need work.

    I am a little suprised more people haven't provided opinions though. :( I didn't think they were THAT bad.

    Could be just the opposite, don't you think? :)

    They all seem to be very nice, clear, pictures. Sometimes around here if there isn't something obviously wrong with them they tend to get light comments, unless the picture is way over the top good.

    I like them all.

    Thats pretty much how things go these days. If something is in obvious need of help, people comment. If something is totally amazing, people comment. If things are good, not bad, not amazing, just good.... they usually get no comment.

    As mentionned, I think you are doing good with exposure and clarity of the images.

    Improvements can be made on the composition of them. The first thing that popped in my mind is that things seem cut off in the images, mainly in 2 and 3. It makes me think that the picture isn't complete.

    The first one is probably my fave in the set, but I would love to see you get even closer to the flowers and try and isolate the nicest looking one.
