A couple of pics I took the first time I used my camera. This is my first camera btw so I didn't go crazy on the price.

What size is a good size to post on here? I noticed the butterfly is huge

This is some flower that was in my mom's yard.

there is here some cool pics.

#1 hard light, can you set the white balance on your cam ?

#2 a very good capture

#3 high dof so the flower is neat but the backgound too

#4 again a hard light, this one is interesting cause of the contrast beetween the flower and the grass, try to retouch it

#5 i like it even if focus is on leaves and not on flower

#6 clouds for clouds on cloudy sky

I can set the white balance but I haven't yet. I am assuming you mean it is too bright by saying hard light, correct?

What did you mean on the 3rd pic? High dof? I don't know at all about cameras yet but I am very interested so far.

I just threw the sky pic in there because I liked it

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.
The DOF is the depth of field.

For macro shots, this DOF shouldn't be too high, so the actual object stands out and the background gets blurred.
You can achieve a small DOF by chosing a high aperature size(F2,8 for example)
On the other hand, when you'd like to have the sharpness in the foreground as well as in the background, you need to choose a small aperature size like F8 or something similar.
A high aperature size (as you should use it in macro shots) also brings a faster shutter speed, because the lense is more open, than in small aperatures and vice versa.

I hope I could help you. If there are some more questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks Kex. Was I correct in the white balance perception? I am guessing I can darken or lighten the picture using the white balance.
