    read your camera manual, too. Some Canon "manuals" are in that wonderful Magazine style format very nice to read.

    Just started not long ago too. I think reading magazines really help. Digital Camera does have a lot of info for beginners.

    The techniques are very logical so ask yourself questions when things do not go the way you intended. Then change a setting and review what changed in the image. This is a sure way to learn what the controls do.

    1. We have a critique corner for a reason...
    2. Everywhere. It's out of focus (did you use a tripod?) or jut looks like you focused on the back instead of the subject and just looks boring and flat. I do not see anything that stands out, no "story", no "wow". Before you take a picture, try to think "what am I trying to show here? How can I make that stand out?"

    Please provide your exif information for us to better advise. Like what Rashkae said, it is OOF... what are you trying to achieve - a dreamy effect (no punk intended).
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Firstly they are right posting in the critique corner will get your image critiqued, just be prepared to receive harsh critique as it helps you improve.

    Ask yourself, what do you like about your picture and what you don't like about your picture.

    Then ask yourself in what way can your picture be improved.

    The most important thing is to go back and try to achieve what you want by shooting again.

    When starting out it is always difficult and it seems that everything does not go the way you want, we all went through it.
