Re: Do I have potential? Yes!

Everybody does, but you are showing a nice eye for a picture.

Might I make one suggestion? Jim Salvas mentioned the natural propensity for centering images and noted that you had avoided that. I agree with Jim -- breaking that natural habit is one of the keys to making better pictures. I would go a step further than you have, though, and push the key parts of the picture a little bit more towards an edge. The rule of thirds is a great starting point in composition -- try to apply that both vertically and horizontally without fail to very picture you take for a week and see how things look.

Once you get into the habit, you can then go the opposite way and start breaking out of it!

But nice work -- keep them coming, Liz!

Cheers, geoff
