Looking at the stats for these three, I think that I can see a little bit of learning. Yikes! That will not do!!
The first shot is in focus. It is a bit dark. But essentially it is a point and shoot shot.
Stats for the top shot: F9.0, 1/30, ISO=100, 55mm
So I wanted more concentration on the stall-holder: but stuffed it. Way too dark and out of focus.
Stats for the middle shot: F9.0, 1/30, ISO=100, 171mm
So there is the effect of zooming in: the light is squashed out. So somehow more light must be let in because of the zoom in. Obviously I need to adjust either aperture or s/s.
Ahha ... this is about right to my eye. So what did I do to adjust?
Stats for bottom shot: F8.0, 1/25, ISO=100, 146mm
I took the easy does it approach. Opened the aperture a stop. Took the s/s down by a full step. And eased off a bit with the zoom. All three adjustments let in more light and gave a better composition.
It helped that she smiled a bit, too ...
