    Nice photos! That storm cloud would scare me.. never seen clouds so black before. I'm glad to see more pictures from an SX120IS as I plan on getting one in a few months.

    As dak1b stated, it might be good for you to think about getting a DSLR camera. I would myself, but being between jobs at the moment and having only a $200 budget for a camera is why I would be getting the SX120IS. Otherwise I would get a used Rebel XT kit off ebay or something.

    Are you using auto or manual mode on your camera. I ask this because some of your animal shots look a bit noisy (grainy) and out of focus. But most of your other shots look nice and clear.

    That works. I'd say for now, the main thing would be to learn the basic and 3 most important functions of the camera, which would be..

    ISO
    Aperture
    Shutter Speed

    Once you learn those, you will be golden as it seems you already have a semi-good eye for composition it seems.
