not right but good start. The image tag works like this:

     <img src="path to img" alt="optional image description">

And to make it complete. Some want to make clear that the img tag is a self closing tag and write it like this:

     <img src="path to img" alt="optional image description" />

But this is more a matter of taste since both is valid html5

edit: Sorry some problems with code tags... Now it should be right
