    They're all snapshots. Get a beginner's photography book and start reading on page 1 :dunno:

    The first things you're going to need at least a basic understanding of are some fundamentals of composition and how to control your camera manually (or atleast how aperture/shutter speed affect photos).

    Correct your white balance anytime you move to a different light temp.

    On the second pic I guess you were trying to be creative, you need to focus on one thing, if your subject is the trash can make it focused, play around with dof.

    larger aperture = more dof

    larger aperture is a smaller number, try f/5.6 or bigger ( smaller number)

    basically the larger the aperture the smaller the depth of field, using f2.8 will have a smaller range, so say the only thing is focus is whatever is between 1 and 2 feet(not actual numbers just made them up) , everything before and after is out of focus.

    also read up on this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds it will help you take some better and more visually interesting pictures
