    nice, I like #2, I'm not too much of a flower/vegetation shooter either, maybe the occasional tree based landscape or something...

    what part of MI were you in?

    I was actually born in Detroit, lived there through college (with a few years off for 'Nam). Then lived in quite a few other states working for Uncle Sam, then later for GM. Last three years, after returning from TN, and before moving to UT, I lived in Rochester Hills.

    I have to admit, the only thing I miss about MI is Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.

    I like the (composition? Is it) and depth of field in #3.
    Am I using the composition term correctly?

    yeah, I think you are...composition is generally the way the elements (subject, background, foreground, etc) are positioned within the frame to produce a pleasing to the eye effect. depth of field is the depth of the focal plane (there is a 'plane' which is parallel to the image sensor which is in focus, things that lie outside of that plane will be out of focus), so a shallow depth of field is a thin focal plane which renders much of the foreground/background out of focus, which can be used for aesthetics (i.e. portraits, macro, etc) like in #3 how his subject, the berries, are in focus because they lie in the focal plane, but the trees in the background are not in the focal plane and are out of focus, on the flip side a deep depth of field would be a wide focal plane where LOTS of the image are in focus (think landscapes and such)

    Exallent on second shot. Has good visual impact. Composition is often subjective
