    Just a couple of flower shots from my mothers garden. Hope you guys like them and please let me know if there is anything that i can do to make my photography skills better as i am still just a student.

    The pen is a mighty weapon that cuts like a double edged sword. It can be used for boundless truths or for endless deception.

    These are nice...I like the 3rd one most. (they are very pretty flowers)
    I suggest that you get in closer to the flowers.....explore them and find the very best angle you can find. Less dirt...more flower and colour should be what you're thinking. Also...try not to center your subjects so much...learn the rule of thirds and you'll start seeing things in a whole new light. Above all...KEEP AT IT!!

    What Scotty said. Once you focus on your object you can shift your camera a little up or to the left or right of your subject. Try to get on a level with the subject where it is 'framed' by other things. Maybe if you squatted down on the first pic and backed the flower against the contrating background it would be even better(nice flowers btw). I chopped your shot up a bit (hope you don't mind) to kinda illustrate.

    Keep on shooting!

    Right oh, thanks for the most helpful comments. As to getting on the level with the subject, i was actually attempting to do that, squatting down in my garden and whatnot but i can see what youre saying about getting closer. Also, pardon my ignorence, but what is this rule of thirds that was mentioned?

    these are a bit boring.
    flowers are a common subject
    but try to vary a little with the angle, the distance, and - important - the aperture to get more or less depth of field.
    choosing a big aperture like f2.8 helps you to set your object free from the background,
    choosing a small aperture like f8 of f16 will give you full sharpness through a great distance (great for landscape)...

    go on...
