Mark, looks like you did ok for your first outing with your first DSLR. I would suggest a slower shutter speed also make sure you exposure is not over. Looks like on some of them the whites are blown out. Also having the subject fill the entire frame can get boring if all your shots look the same. Keep in mind about placing the subject on one of the third points. Rule of thirds. Not much you can do about the background other then try to blur it out with the slower shutter.It is not easy at the beginning but keep at it and before you know it you will be better. Also what iso did you shoot at? Can't read the exif in the images, it was stripped.

Wow, dude you got your work cut out for you.

rule of thirds: http://www.digital-photography-school.com/rule-of-thirds (external link)

Google, rule of thirds and read up, also learn to read your histogram as well. What I meant by blown out is that the white are overexposed. Although the rest of the image looks good the whites are burned. Meaning too much light was let in. Also the time of day and your position to the sun also matters. Keep at it read up and learn your gear most importantly. Is your monitor calibrated as well? That might also be why and SRGB is the colorspcae you want to upload not Adobe RGB, that to can cause issue. What software are you using that you couldn't resize for upload?

Your best bet is to pick up a copy of Adobe photoshop Lightroom 3. You can catalog, and edit your photos and export then as a certain size then upload them. You might also want to sign up for a flicker or any type of online sharing or hosting site. then you can just copy the image url and paste the url between image tags like this,

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE
1024pixel on the longest side of the image is the max on this forum. Always upload to the web with an SRGB colorspace on your photos. Lightroom takes care of all the for you, also you can create a watermark logo and have lightroom place it on the image for you as well.. You better hustle man.

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: NOT FOUND | MIME changed to 'image/gif'


All I did was right click on the image, then clicked on copy image location then put it between the img tags.

S.E.V. mentioned to blur the background with a slower shutter speed, you can also open the aperture.

ok,so i finally figured out how to find the iso,exposure,and f stop numbers and for the shot you put up above, and here they are

F-stop:f/7.1
Exposure Time:1/500 sec.
ISO speed:ISO-200

Now take the f stop to f11 or even f13 and you will see that the shutter speed will drop, your iso is fine, now if you put on a 3 stop ND filter you will drop the f stop to around f8 and keep the shutter speed lower for the blurred back ground at the same iso 200.
