Don't forget to look at what is in the background too,and start by taking basic pics while you get used to your camera, colouring is good on the flowers tho'
Again very good focus on the middle flower but the whole image is very cluttered. Sloping horizons rooftop)should be avoided unless you are trying for something particularly quirky. In this instance i feel you have gone for a bloom that is the middle of the shrub! Try going for something easier to get at while you get used to the camera. This image is far more cluttered than the yellow bloom and very difficult to view. But DO NOT WORRY you will get the hang of it. Take pictures, drop them onto your computer and be your own harshest critic. I'm sure you will get a lot more feedback when others come on line later. But apart from the photos get back on the thread you started and tell us a bit more about yourself. This is a great community
I tend to agree with the above comments. I found my eye was drawn immediately to the leaf with the three holes in it! Also be aware of where your light is coming from. In this instance the light is behind the subject and straight at your camera, this tends to give you a silhouette effect, I don't think that is what you were aiming for, was it? Like everything else you start new, it is all just practice!
