Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

Dont be too down on yourself its not a lousy shot - everybody has to start somewhere. I saw your filename was "edited" i just wonder what you did? What software do you use? One of the first lessons i learnt from this forum was that PP (post processing) is not a bad thing but essential with digital photography. Not sure what software you have but learn a sharpening technique - you should almost certainly apply this to all shots you take (well most of them!).

So i have modded your image, hope you dont mind. Firstly I boosted the contrast a little to remove the attention from the leafy backdrop (ideally this should be blurred by cloising down the aperture). Also cloned out a couple of the dead heads of the flowers (you should do this by hand while composing and framing the shot). finally run the sharpen stage.

Looking forward to more shots.

DJ
