    On the first one, there is so much glare on the water that I think your auto metering overcompensated, and squashed the mallard's head to black. The next time you are shooting a duck on water, see if there is another position you can get into that has less glare. Also, if/when you use an SLR, a polarizing filter should take care of most of it. Do they make polarizers for point-and-shoots?

    I like the twins in the second shot. Crop them tighter and you would have a nice photo.

    Hey, thanks for the comment. I was wondering why I couldn't see the eyes of the mallard in the picture but you explain it. Thanks. I'm not sure if they make polarizer for point and shoot, I'll just look around for a better angle next time. As for the second picture, how would you crop it? I was worry that composition was a bit busy but I wasn't sure how to go about it.
