    Good photo, especially for a first attempt with new gear. I too just started trying to photograph flowers with my D40X & S550 P&S. Your photo has a dreamy look that I like. Ain't nature grand!!!

    Not bad for your first try. I think a different angle would work better. Someway to show the flower and isolate the flower from the background. To me the background is a bit busy here. Makes my eyes wonder all over the photo instead of the flower.

    The flower is called fuchsia, and they're absolutely beautiful. Personally, I think it's a great first attempt. I would isolate the flower a bit more by adjusting the background so as to make the fuchsia stand out more, but I do think the colors are quite lovely!
