    I took these using a little Compact digital and would like to get sugestions and what I can do to improve them. Since it is a Compact I cant really control much but would they be better from another angle or something? The Camera I used was a 5 megipixil camera with quiet a few options.

    Can`t help ya there, eagles405, I just point and shoot.

    Every now and then, I will use my sun-glass lens over the camera lens in bright sunlight for a different look, or when I take pics on the water to reduce glare, and sunsets, the lens from my glasses are used there, too.

    I click on " auto " all the time, lol, `cause I don`t want to read the farggin` manual...hehe.

    Some day I will learn to use the settings for f-stop, etc...

    imout :cool:

    At this point your great adventure begins. ;)

    Here are a couple of URLs you may start with. Not much, but it will get you going:

    http://www.thepeaches.com/photography/Basics.htm
    http://www.ctlow.ca/Photo/Photo.html
    http://www.photonhead.com/beginners/

    There is a bunch of links in the last one. Follow them one by one.

    Most of all, don't get hung up on preconceived notions or definitions. Remember, Photo·Graphy means writing with light. It's your story, and the camera is only a tool. You make the photograph. Use any tools at your disposal to show what you see, the way you see it. All is fair in love and war (or was it art?) :)

    How about getting a web hosting account at photobucket.com.
    It's free. They you upload pictures to the Photobucket account.
    When you post here you just click on the IMG button above where you type your reply. Then you paste and copy the URL to the little dialog box that pops up.

    Like this:http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y220/Derm95/DSC_4933.jpg)

    The image is automatically resized to about 250k and comes out like this:

    Eagles,

    They look pretty good. I would advise against using flash on macro's unless you dial it way back, and have a camera that accepts an off-camera flash and bounce it off a peice of foamcore or white paper(to get rid of the harsh shadow in the first one).

    Also, I would suggest that if you can, adjust your aperature to give just a little more depth of field than you got in "flower three.jpg"

    Have Fun!
