    First one looks really nice!
    Second one looks washed out. Maybe up the contrast a little. Also, you might want to try cropping some of it.
    Third and forth one look OK. I would have gotten much closer than that. Maybe also try a different angle. This angle looks like the normal human point-of-view, so it doesn't stir as much interested.

    1 & 2 - I like old silos too. If you have software you might try to "straighten" the silos from the perceived leaning that happens when shooting something very tall.

    3 - Froggie, You got the whole lilly pad in nicely. Now try a closer crop. I know you don't have much time to shoot those guys before they get nervous and hop into the water. I usually only hear their splash and know they were there.

    4. Turtle - These guys are not hopping any too quick. Take the opportunity to get down low and shoot a few angles. (Low, from the side, straight on to the face).
    Looks like you are getting to the great outdoors and getting to see animals. It doesn't get better than that. Have fun.

    Thanks hulk & lvcrtrs,I have problems when I , C&C,so every time i post a picture i learn something,i did however shoot several shots of the turtle,and also tried to straighten the silos....fail...
    I'm really interested in everyones opinion of the settings,too slow shutter on some?1&2.too high ISO?#4 kit lens only goes to 105mm,so maybe better lens for #3?like 300mm agree? disagree??
