    Maybe you dont know enough about photography to utilize a DSLR well. I have no idea. Your going to have to give us way more info if you want some decent advice. Post some pics too.

    hmm what do you not like about your shots?
    Maybe you can post some here
    Best advice is to keep shooting and you'll get better
    taking a look at some of the pics posted in the gallery here would help too

    a good starting point would be to read up about the relationships between shutter speed, aperture and ISO..

    anyway, your query is quite vague, lotsa reason why when you see the results you almost faint.. too good? too blur? too sharp? too pretty?

    set to fully auto mode, use it like a oversize PnS, sure can come out some thing usable.

    I read the manual book from my camera package then actually i tried to take picture at the same spot with different shuttle speed , aperture and ISO. Tried to compare but i just feel my pics quite "fake" don't have the feeling of wat i see is wat i get.

    Btw how to post pictures here?

    Thanks

    yepp dslr is not exactly what u see is what u get.. what u see comes directly thru the lens if viewed on the viewfinder and the colours and imagery is what ur eye decieves (pardon me if i`m wrong).. do some pp and it shld be alright i guess!

    generally they're well exposed. but you might be facing 2 problems here.

    - sharpness
    both the photos shown lack of sharpness, either maybe due to shutter speed being too slow or focus wrongly.

    - noise (maybe)
    do use an iso value as low as possible under normal lighting condition.

    actually there's a 1/focal length rule that you can apply to your shooting so as to keep your photos sharp. but you do not have to strictly follow it.
    (example: you're shooting a wide angle scene with your kit lens, imo... i would not use anything lower than 1/30)

    just to add on. some may say it's 1/1.6*focal length because of the crop factor in your 400D.

    cheers

    Free and easy way, Go to library, photography section, read up books on basics like exposure, shutter speed etc etc. if you are lazy to go out, read here.
