    Hi. I'm not consider myself as a "beginner", but after the photos I have seen at this forum, I think that my shots are not so good as I thought. In a few days I will have a new camera, and I will be able to do better photos. The shots I post are taken with a HP Photosmart M627. Please, comment my photos, tell me what I can do to improve my shots and more things

    I like the concept. To me you need to work on the leaf in front of its face and the reflection line going down the middle of its face. Unless it's your window, you would just have to wait for a better opportunity with the leaf. The reflection may go away with a polarized filter. - TF

    Interesting. Wild Mallard with a harem of tame ducks? :)

    The focus appears to be on the strip of grass just in front of the camera, not on the ducks.

    I see nothing interesting in the grass and would crop the photo just under and just to the left of the ducks.

    I thought It would be nicer if the ducks were in the upper side of the screen, and see the grass with the mode "macro".

    I think this is a really nice shot, but you asked for improvements, right? Anything you can do to clean up the background would be a big help - especially that big green thing. If the green thing and the other car were out of there and the DOF were reduced enough to blur the building, the entire photo would concentrate on the two beetles. - TF

    Thank you... but, What can I do if the big green thing and the car were there at the moment of the shot? OK, It's right that the photo would be better if that things weren't there, but, I prefer take a photo as in that moment was, I'm not a very good friend of Photoshop, I prefer naturallity, I hope you'll undestand me. Another thing, please, can you explain me what is DOF? Remember that i'm spanish, and I don't know the meaning of this acronym.

    Thanks for your comments

    In this photo, I've added a sunset effect. Do you like it? ...or is it too much red?

    DoF means depth of field. it basically refers to the depth of the area that's in focus.
    lovelt composition on the beetles one. i very much like the porsche one, too. very... red!
    i know you said you're not much into photoshop but in this last one some color edit may bring out some very interesting shades.
