First (not terrible) shot with new Kx. C&C please ;)
Lens: 30.63 Camera: kx Photo Location: table ISO: 3200 Shutter Speed: 1/6s Aperture: F4 

not much to look at but I was just messing around. I am so lost already, most of the shots I took were not recognizable to the human eye,lol.

Well, yes, there's a lot wrong, but we all want to be nice to you because you're new (I'm assuming) and we don't want to scare you off.

Most strikingly, you should use the correct white balance for indoor lighting, either Tungsten or whatever you need to for the temperature of your lights. The composition is also a bit of a mess... and boring.

I dont mind the yellow hue, but i am always biased towards artistic creation than realistic imagery .

Though the composition can use some work, the background objects detracts from the main subject. Also, you could probably work with better lighting...ISO 3200 at 1/6 shutter at wide open? If you are at home there must be better sources of lighting that you can control. Keep trying!
