Just a little soft - did you use the macro option on your camera (sometimes it has a picture of a flower)?

Yeah I did, I don't know why it turned out like this.

It could be because it was a little dark in the area you chose to take the image. Perhaps have another go and take the flower closer to a window. Use plain paper or material as a backdrop and, if you can, prop the camera up on a solid surface (or a bean bag if you have one). Then use the 'timer' function - with mine I have 10 seconds. I push the shutter halfway to focus, then when I'm happy I continue pushing until a light starts flashing, then I stand back and wait! Smile

I'll try it, thanks. Grin
