Learning About Exposure - The Exposure Triangle
The Exposure Triangle – In Beginner Speak “The End of Auto Mode”
What shooting mode were you using?
When asking for C&C (comments & critique) it's best to keep the number of images posted to 3 or 4 and number them so the people helping you have a way of identifying the image they're commenting on. And leave some space between each image so they don't run together and look like one big image.
Shooting white objects in bright sunlight and getting the exposure right is not an easy thing to do. Having a good understanding of how your camera meters a scene and understanding the exposure triangle will help. Or you could shoot in a shady area or wait until clouds block the sun so you don't have to deal with the strong harsh sunlight.
Did you do any photo editing to these? Some of the images look a little soft and could use some sharpening.
Light and angle seem to be affecting each shot differently. It is difficult to shoot very light objects in full sun. Nevertheless, I am a big fan of the two swans photo and the reflections of the swans captured in a couple other shots.
