    Hi darkzephr and welcome!

    There is a big difference between a really good photograph and a very average photograph or a snapshot.

    One of the keys is distractions within a scene.Other keys involve good composition and exposure. Each of the photographs you uploaded is full of distractions.

    You need to ask yourself what is the focal point in the shot AND or the purpose of taking the shot. Then look around the REST of the image and see if the other elements improve or detract from the shot.

    I would recommend that you listen to our most recent podcast that talks about this very issue.

    Hope that helps,

    shot 2 i think is the best of the three, i find it has the least distractions, perhaps crop out the left side of the photo? it seems is some light coming in from the background. IMO its the most distracting point of the photo.

    keep reading and listening to the podcasts as well as posting for critiques, there is soo much information and people more than willing to help on this site.

    Actually, I really dig the first shot with the blurred hand; it just works for me
