You’ve got two good compositions there, especially the second. The second feels a lot more personal than the first (though both are well done); I can see the person, rather than just their hands. I can feel that they are sitting, perhaps meditatively quiet, reading.
Also, your focus in both shots is tack-sharp, with a gorgeous background blur.
A comment would be that your white balance (the balance between yellow-blue and pink-green) is shifted a lot towards the blue, and a tad towards the green. That tends to make a picture look “cold” and a bit unwelcoming. This is an adjustment you’ll have to do on the computer in post-processing. Just as an example, I’ve attached a “warmed-up” version of your picture.

Is there any way you can change that on the camera so that you don’t have to edit every picture?
This morning I came across a filter (If that’s what you call it) on the camera that went between blue and red would that be good enough?
I don’t know how to get to that now though😊August 6, 2022 at 8:35 am #71736Blessings CapturedParticipant
Yes, you can change the color in camera! And it’s best to do it that way if you’re shotting jepg. Changing the white balance (coloring) after the fact will make your picture more grainy.
You should find the white balance in your shooting menu. It’ll be labeled with wb or a little picture of a sun, cloud, lightbulb etc. You set that to whatever lighting conditions you’re shooting in. For example if you’re in full sun, set it to the sun.

Thank you Hannah, that’s good to know, and thank you for the link😊
And about the signature, I like the flower too😄.
