    I'm not really one to CC since I just began photography myself, but heres what I can suggest.

    In Number 1 you should crop out the flash at the top left corner, maybe edit the colors a bit so they pop out more(beautiful colors!) Maybe unsharpen mask it a bit, then put a mask over the fish and turn up the vibrance and adjust the reds,blues, ect.


    Also, dont forget about the rule of thirds!

    Puppy's are very, very difficult to get a good shot of... if only they had a "sit still" button :lol:

    Exposure on that landscape does not seem right, but its hard to avoid in a single shot without using gradient filters.

    The bottom is dark and the sky is really white, blown out on the upper right. There is a high dynamic range in the contrast. Our human eye adjusts to this very quickly, the camera can't. If you were to exposure the bottom better, it would be lighter, and the sky would be even MORE blown out.

    This is where HDR pictures can come in handy (take 3+ shots, merge with software) or using a filter that has a gradient on it (the top is darker, the bottom is almost clear).

    do you mean overlay the 3+ pics or cut parts from each of the 3+ pics taken at different exposure settings ?

    its was probably user error, as just out of frame at the top right was the sun hehe... i should have looked at the picture better as i was taking it.
