    Most are boring. #4 should have been composed w/ the kimodo to the left of the frame, rather than the right. you can't see his tail in this shot anyway, as the fence blocks it, and the pole is viciously distracting anyway.

    btw... where's the glitter and water droplets on #1? :squint:

    shallow depth of field doesn't make a good photo.

    thanks for the criticism.

    this was my first time shooting after watching countless YT photog tips videos and doing boring practicing in my room. i took 600+ pix during my vacation but 99% looked pretty much p&s. i have a lot to learn.

    my composition and creativity sucks. i have trouble choosing settings on the fly (WB, EV, rule of 3rds, etc.) before the moment passes. this limits me to shoot non-moving subjects. theres pretty much no improvement than shooting in P-mode.
