Jessica, this is a beautiful picture, and I think your mom is right: You do have talent, and I think you WILL be a great photographer some day!!! I'm glad you joined the site, and I will be watching for your work. There are a few other young people on this site too, Check out "Zemm" from Australia. He is 10 and an amazing photographer -- like you :)

Good luck, Jessica!!!!!!!!

Congratulations on an excellent finish for a first entry! I love the way you arranged the apple and the flowers on the leaves. I like the dandelion right below the apple. The greens and red are really beautiful, they look so juicy.

I hope you make many more beautiful pictures - making pictures is just about the funnest thing to do in art.

I liked this one a lot and voted it higher than it's final score. The shiny green leaves are a cool background, a few more of them, or perhaps moving in a little closer would have eliminated the less attractive brown in the upper corners. Very colorful, saturation and sharpness are high but don't go over the line into being over-sharp or over-saturated. Keep up the good work and don't get too preoccupied with scores.

I gave this photo a 6 because of the brilliant colors. I had no idea that it was by a beginner! So you see Jessica you are considered among the regulars :) I think what got you low scores is the centering of your apple and the flowers and you know what until very recently all my photos were like that and some still! I just cannot get the habit to go away. You have the talent for sure.....

Awesome first challenge entry Jess. Creative idea and the colours and focus are excellent. I think in this shot I'd love to see the leaves go all the way to the top at the sides, so you can't see the rocks.

I like to have fun after the challenges trying different ideas.....with this one I'd try different arrangements of the apple and flowers. Maybe apple off centre or dandelion on top of the apple......stuff like that. It's such a lovely fresh looking image.
