Ive always been keen on photography and Ive just treated myself to an E3 (got it last Thursday). Its quite a jump for someone who has only ever practiced point and shoot!
Ive been doing a photography course and as I result I choose to use manual mode on my camera and select my own aperture and shutter speed. Ive read the theory now I want to put it into practice!
I would appreciate some comments with regard to exposure etc. and choice of aperture on my first few photos.

One of the issues....
The picture of my daughter shows a blurred out background - I wanted a narrow depth of field and (to me) that picture works (I am sure some of you will disagree!). What I dont understand is why when using the same aperture the same didnt happen on some of the car picture - the depth of field isnt what I wanted and the background is a lot sharper than I wanted.
The end picture on the page has a sky that looks almost gray. That wasnt what it looked like!
Any and all (constructive) comments gratefully received good or bad!
