    photobucket does make your picture quality worse... try not to use them.

    Did you do alot of pp on the first picture? The sky looks really nice, but a little too fake... If you didn't do any photoshopping on that, then thats amazing.

    Wow, you have a very good eye for composition.

    PP = Post Processing, basically editing the photo using a program such as photoshop, GIMP, etc.

    Photo #1: You shot 1/20 at F/8.0, and ISO 1600. Next time I would try opening up the lens a bit to a smaller number F/stop. This will lower the ISO, and reduce the grain or noise in the photo. But the photo is wonderful. The colors are fantastic.

    Photo #2: Look into investing into a circular polarizer, It will really help your sky "pop". It helps cut through a little of the haze. Great composition.

    #3: I wouldn't change a thing. Great!

    #4: Focus looks a little soft, but still a good shot.

    Keep shooting, and welcome to the forum. I'm new here too, but learning every day. There are many great people on this forum that will help you quite a bit.

    -Andy

    Since i'm a sucker for sunset shots so def. LOVE the first picture.
    Rest are good as well.

    I would also suggest that you number your shots next time so its easier for us to tell you which picture we're talking about.

    Love the colors in the first sunset picture, awesome.

    Surf shots looking good as well, thought it would have been cool for you to get in the water, but with your camera its understandable :p

    yeah thats my plan Flock of birds, i'm not going to bother getting a housing for this cam i will when i upgrade to the 50d? not sure if thats the right model name for the one i'm thinking of though....... the one i'm thinking of takes 6 or 9 frames per second or something like that anyway haha
    would it be a good camera for sequence's?

    The 50D takes shots at 6.3fps or something like that. Which is quick.
