    I like the frog one, but I would try to burn in the highlights in the water. Your eye goes to the eyes first, than whatever is the brightest spot of the photo.

    funny story actually, its mating season for frogs at the moment and was gonna take a picture of frogs humping and send it to a freind as its his kind of humour.
    Anyways i couldnt approach the pond without the frogs dissapearing under the water so i lay on my belly for 20 minutes waiting for a frog to surface (never can let a challenge pass by).

    Its probably the hardest photo ive ever taken as i dont have a tripod and its just held in my hands:o

    The only thing im kinda pissed at is the slight ripples from the frogs breathing.

    Oh and im using a Nikon coolpix 4300 just incase you were wondering

    The frog pictures look great, well done.

    The other ones however the composition seems to all be pretty similiar.

    Have you ever taken any photography classes, or are you at least familiar with the rule of thirds?

    In the other pictures the subject seems to be dead center, IMO the pictures would be greatly improved by moving the subject to either side of the middle.

    Also in the last picture my eyes are immediately drawn to the large, bright, empty sky. It really detracts from what would be a very nice looking skyline.

    Keep up the good work, those frog pics look good, especially without a tripod.
