    The third with the cat has something.

    Well, the first one has a subject that is clearly in focus with a background which is nicely out of focus. The second one has a wide and appropriate depth of focus. The third one has a clear subject that will appeal to quite a wide audience of cat lovers. All are properly exposed. This is very promising, especially if you did not give too much help.
    Its good to partly learn with film.
    At the same time the quick feedback of digital is also valuable, so I hope that your son also gets to use a digital camera.
    Well done Ashley.

    I quite like the street scene actually, they are in reasonable focus, the exposures are good which is probably better than my first efforts.

    Yes I found the cat. Now after your first successful efforts I think that we can 'up the aunty' :). The cat has to stand out more. I don't know how. It just has to stand out more.
    I don't want to criticise unduly Ashley. You have set a high initial standard. Why not try a few in the exhibition lounge, and when you are happy there, try the Lion's den, the Appraisal Gallery. I can't remember the last time that I posted there, so it can't have been that bad. On the other hand is was not that good. Just go for it. JFDI. The F is a very respectable 'flipping'.
