Except for the harsh lighting I'd say you have a creditable picture of a hibiscus. Like the angle which you took the shot. I wouldn't downplay the capabilities of a 2mp camera. I think the skill of the photographr can compensate for some of the shortcomings of their equipment. 2mp doesn't leave much room for cropping so you've got to get it right the first time.

as always, thanks for the critique selvin.

jack, for a while i was using a powershot a60 and i was(still am) impressed by its performance. i took that shot of the flower with an olympus 510z-2mp as well and the pictures come out soo nicely.
as for the hibiscus, the picture was taken on a whim. friends and i were passing them by and i happen to snap 2-3 shots and found one i liked.

thanks again,
berto

I'm using an A60, it's my first ever camera. I've got what i think are decent shots out of it too. I've only had it for 2 months but i'm already wondering what i might get next. :-)Maybe something with more zoom and better video like the Minolta Z2if i'm lucky. :-)

Jack russell, my first digital was a canon powershot A10 1.3 megapixel. It took great pics that I blew up to 10 by 15 quite well. We still use it as we keep it in our work van all the time for the odd shot. Your 2 mega pixel should be quite capable of great shots. The two shots below were taken with that camera.

Berto your flower shot is well composed but as selvin said its color is a little harsh.
