Try not to focus your object all the times in the center of your photo. Try to use the rule of the thirds.

You've made a good start, but as said, the rule of thirds can help you get better results. Best is to only read a little bit about it and then experiment with what you've read till you not only understand how to use it, but till it becomes part of you.

Another useful tip would be to use the Cloudy or Shady white balance setting when you're shooting under natural (i.e. sun) light. Your photos take on a professional look when you do, especially since the auto white balance setting of the A200 tends to make photos look a little too "cool". Or maybe I'm just a hot blooded male 8)

Please do so!

Just to let you know, your avatar should not be bigger than 80 x 80 pixels. I believe yours is wider than that...
