    You can tell when a picture isn't so good: There are no comments posted on it. Such is the case with this one. Yes, I know its over exposed but the perspective I thought was good. You have to have been there to appreciate how I got the shot. I was almost laying down looking straight up to grab it with a 10mm focal length. Those bird houses aren't bird houses they are butterfly houses (see the very narrow slits for entrances. I should have spent more time and taken a couple of more shots with less exposure. This would have made the sky blue and the colors pop out. Oh well, I will try to better next time. This shot was taken at the California Adventure park at Disneyland near the entrance to the bugs life area.

    I think your composition is good (and the subject is interesting). I think the lighting might be your biggest problem in this shot. You primary subjects are in the shade. You might try shooting this one at a different time of the day - or add some flash.

    I remember the day I got my 10-22. Living in a dense city like Athens, I must have escaped death-by-crazy-Athenian-motorist dozens of times, walking around with my head up enjoying the verticality of everything. Enjoy your lensand keep going. Below is an example of what I get up to with mine.

    I agree with Bryan and would like to add something. You might want to try sharpening it a lot more and perhaps convert it to B/W with more contrast. I find that mono sometimes expresses better the composition than colour, especially when lighting is problematic.
