:oops: First time poster and first time shooter. My dad recently bought a Nikon D5000 with the extra 55-200 lense. This would b my first hand experience with a DSLR. I really like blurred backgrounds so I had the camera in Aperture Priority mode with manual focus on. I knwo the subject sint that nice but We all start somewhere right? I watched gordons video on blurring abckgrounds and it helped tons. My next step is to have the same focus points but now see if I can get better colors..

First of all remove the time/date stamp it makes your photos look like a point and shoot. If you ever need the details you can find them in exif data.
Second, try and find some interesting angles and framing, rather than filling entire frame with a bike profile.
Third, don't take me too seriously I am an amateur myself :D

Ya, tell me how I noticed the time stamp AFTER i was done shooting.
Better framing will be done next time. Ths time I was trying it out. Eventualy it will all tie together!
I agree with everything you said. I will now go scold my dad for thinking the time/date stamp is a god dea!
