What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I was trying to control depth of field -- and decide what was appropriate for each subject. These are the ones I was best pleased with.

This is a very interesting and nice use of shallow depth of field in your flower image. One thing to be careful of is exposure of bright things like the white flowers. They are gray and not white because of underexposure. Your photo of the rocks has potential but the camera is overemphasizing the contrast of the light, making the image a bit confusing. You saw the scene just fine but the camera did not. One of our challenges as photographers is learning to see as the camera sees and knowing its limitations. We see subjects, but the camera could care less about subjects and emphasizes light and dark. Your tree trunk against the sky is a nice, simple and direct image.
