I brought my Exposure time 1/200. I am trying out different exposure times and learning as I go.
Arlon suggested using a flash and they didn't come out to good. There was just too much light.
Tell me view on this one please. Or any suggestions.

You're improving in leaps and bounds Sandy. I don't know your camera personally but I did a quick lookup on it and see that you have the capability of changing your exposure values +/- 2 full stops in 1/3 increments. Try playing with that EV value to see if you can get some images that may not be quite as over-exposed. This one is not that bad as I see no blown areas but if the EV was adjusted a tad down you might see more details in the petals of the flower. Of course, a lot of this can also be taken care of in your post processing of the image whether it be with Picasa, Elements, Photoshop or whatever you use. It's just a suggestion of something else to try while learning your new camera. Nice job.
