    TS. Your photo is nice... but the second one seemed abit off focus. You might want to share the exif of all your photos (esp. the second one)... something like, where to do you focus, what is the aperture, shutter speed and stuff like that.

    Third photo is good too... but if you can get rid of the flat, it would be better... do it by post processing or next, time try to position yourself somewhere where the building are not there.

    Post processing is something like editing your photos to enhance the colours, the contrast, the exposures and so on and so forth. Usually people use Photoshop, there are also people using LightRoom.

    1st and 2nd was

    iso 100
    aperture is about f4.5-5

    shutter speed is about 1/500 - 1/600 I cant really remember but i set around like that

    for last picture
    about aperture f4
    iso 200
    shutter speed 1/400

    All pictures taken without tripod

    Its an estimation, i cant really remember actual settings i set. Its there any other way to find out besides remembering?
    I will take note of that

    Just right click on your photo, click on properties and click on detail.

    Anyway, I think your exposure is correct, but on your second photo, it seemed off focus, thats why the flowers are not sharp. That is why I am wondering where is your focus point. You might want to set your aperture narrower (bigger f-value) so that more was in focus (if all the flower you wanted was to be in focus).

    The other thing was try to get rid of the building in your third photo. You can use a free program called the GIMP (search it out in the net). Can use the clone tool (from the tool box) to slowly remove the building.

    Irfanview is a good viewing tool, but not a great editing tool for photo. Either use the photoshop or the GIMP.

    pic 1
    Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/800 second ===> 0.00125 second
    Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 9/2 ===> /4.5
    Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    ISO Speed Ratings = 100

    pic 2
    Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/250 second ===> 0.004 second
    Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 71/10 ===> /7.1
    Exposure Program = aperture priority (3)
    ISO Speed Ratings = 100

    pic 3
    Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/1000 second ===> 0.001 second
    Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 4/1 ===> /4
    Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    ISO Speed Ratings = 200

    I am curious, why do you use Manual exposure?
