All IMHO. Composition looks alright. Need a wider aperture to throw the backgrounds oof, quite sharp at the moment. Personally i prefer my flowers bright & vibrant, so i find a majority of ur pics kinda dull. ;p
But a number could def have used fill-flash, 0092-looks like the sun is behind it, 0132- Ur own shadow is over e flower!!, 0153-sun behind, 0156-shadow cast from above.

A couple of high contrast pics which looks interesting, but could do with a tighter crop/diff angle- 0071, 0110. (subjective, if u like it tats fine :) )

I like, 0001, 0031, 0108, 0077, 0136, 0148.

Try to size ur pics to at least 600x400 next time. Verli small, me have to squint... :nono:

try saving e copies in a lesser image quality then. 7 or 8?

if u can use an external flash, go fashion a diy bouncecard. if it's an internal flash, i guess u can try shooting direct & test if ur sensor can do fill-flash. Hmm, sorry, i dun play with digi-cams so cant help u here.
