Here are a few recent pics. All were taken in auto, I still haven't found enough courage to start with manual. I appreciate good and bad advice! Thanks ladies!
Hope these show up. My computer here at work is odd. I have to post links...sorry.

none of the pics are showing up for me.
BUMP! Hoping for some CC.
VERY NICE SADIE!!!
#1. I LOVE your kitty's eyes! I love the composition and focus here. Looks great!
#2. Ruthie's eyes seem a bit dark, but otherwise, this is a very lovely shot. Great eye contact and emotion.
#3. love the little yawn, but the lack of eye contact is unfortunate.
#4. COOL LIGHTNING!!!! I've never managed to catch anything like that. I wish the horizon was straight, but otherwise, REALLY cool shot!
#5. AWWWWW! What a sweet shot. The eye contact is GREAT and I just love that drooly face. The flash is a little harsh, but doesn't take away too much from this one, imho. What an adorable little man!
#6. I like this one a lot too. What a sweet little smile. Might be a touch under exposed, but I'm on DH's laptop right now, so I'm not sure about that. LOVE her expression.
Still holding out for some CC!
Sadie, it's hard to give too much CC on photos taken in full auto, because we can really only comment on composition. Your camera made all the decisions. I suggest that you play around with the manual setting because your camera didn't always make the best choices here.
As for compositions..they could be stronger. All of the photos (except of that awesome lightning shot) have a center composition which is not the most effective choice for most subjects.

That lightning shot is great! I agree with Amber though. Just take the plunge and shot in manual. It is the only way you will learn. Also avoid using the pop up flash on your camera. It never does a great job.
Ok Im supposed to be doing schoolwork right now so Ill just say I love 4 and 6.. Ill get back with more CC
