Hey guys, I was reading up about how to use my XTi and was playing with some of the settings. I really know nothing about photography but have been reading the past few days. I took these two pics using Aperture and shutter priority. I'm sure they are pretty meh to you guys, but I have mabye a 10% understanding of this camera so far. The first one came out alright, but I think the second one is too dark. I have the exif data on the page too. Can you guys give me some constructive input on how to improve the pictures. All I did was resize them using the Canon software...I have no idea how to edit images to make them look better, so I didn't mess with them at all.

Will be here on Tuesday, so hopefully it will give me a sharper image.
