I used a similar camera (Nikon S6000) for several years and had to follow all three of those rules, with rare exception, to get a photo accepted here.

Sorry, but the most likely scenario is that a photo looks blurry when uploading as well, but the user doesn't spot it. That's why we have pre-screening threads.

Yes some are better than others but like JaKTrax said, whatever you have, understand your camera's manual and its workings too. Personally, I would start with a good setting like recommended above, get comfortable and confident there, then start playing with your settings to get different results. There is also some great videos on youtube that explain how aperture, ISO, and shutter speed all work together. watch a few of them, play with what you learn and go from there. Its all part of the fun
Also, if you haven't done so already, look into some processing software. Adobe Lightroom is probably the big one but there are plenty out there. Google search some, try their free trials and see what works for you. I would say almost every photo in the database has had some form of processing done to it, even if its just cropping to the right size or moving an aircraft so its centred.

To get the photo link, go to your photo corner, click the thumbnail. Then right-click the thumnail and copy the photo link. Alternatively, post the ID (the 7 digit number) and I can get a link for you.
