Hi Monotosh Kundu!
How much is deafening the silence of the TE community!...
But keep hope!!
I can see you know how to photograph!
You want to photograph better!
You are the master of your destiny! Only you!!...

First: to read and to reread the instructions for use of your camera...
Secondly: it gives so many websites which speaks of the photo's techniques (depth of field and so many other things)... to learn the rules of composition, of framing… but ever not forget that the main is to know to go beyond the rules... with talent!
Third: to visit the public libraries... there is so many books that permit to learn the basis' techniques... and as so much books that permit to see the world through other looks!
Fourth: to visit the sites again such TE or a lot of other to accustom your look to watch the world… otherwise!!
Fifth: to learn alone or, better, with the help of other photographers, to master the software of post-treatment of the photos' files...
Finally and especially: to take photos, without stopping ever, a lot! Try and retry !!

A bonus...
"1.TECHNICAL QUALITY
Editors, judges and evaluators all agree: a successful photographic image must have good technical quality to start with.

•FOCUS: Is the image sharp? If not, is it intentionally soft and successful?
•CLEANLINESS: Is it free of scratches, dust spots, stains, lens flare, etc?
•EXPOSURE: Is it too light, too dark or just right?
•LIGHTING: Is the lighting too contrasty, too flat or just right?
•COLOURS: Does it have neutral colours or a strange colour cast?

2.COMPOSITION
Affected by the camera viewpoint and focal length of the lens. It can raise an image from a technical success to an artistic success!
•BALANCE: Is the image aligned correctly or is it crooked?
•LOGIC: Is the arrangement of the visual elements effective?
•PURPOSE: Is there a strong centre of interest, pattern or design?
•CLARITY: Is it simple, yet complete and without distracting elements?

3.EMOTIONAL APPEAL
The vital element for a truly great image, making it unique and memorable.
•DYNAMIC: Does it grab and keep your attention? Does it have the "wow" factor?
•PROVOCATIVE: Does it excite your imagination, or create a strong emotion in you?
•CREATIVE: Does it show a familiar subject in a new, unusual and yet effective way?
•UNUSUAL: Does it show a very unusual subject in an effective way? We found this guide in Canadian Camera magazine (Spring 2004) by Andre Cabuche, AFIAP."

But it gives so much other ways!
Look for and find!
I wish a good trip!
Best regards! alain

P.S. : excuse my so detestable English !

Alain -

That was an excellent answer and your English was very good - better than my French. I am amazed at the lack of basic courtesy of some people who ask for help but can not say thank you or even Merci.

Well done!!

John

Il y a un livre de Freeman (tout sur la photo numérique) qui peut t'aider à démarrer, ensuite il faut faire partie d'un club et montrer et se faire critiquer ses photos, et petit à petit on exerce son regard

I was going to forget the main!...
"At the beginning... a thought of Claude Dytivon, French photographer who left us in 2008.
"By dint of to watch, I saw!""
Extract of <a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/bernicle/" target="new window" >My profile</a>
Look at ! Look at ! And you will see !!
And a good photographic trip for all people !...
