    Here are my pics of a group canoeing in Helsinki late in the evening and
    earlier that day. Which one is better (is either any good?)

    Any comments welcome!

    Shooting towards a bright sky really darkens the foreground. The solution is using a graduated neutral density filter, a polarizing filter or bringing out the detail in the foreground in postprocessing.

    The bird looks like a giant Teradactyl.

    I used a polarizing filter for these shots. I didn't want to correct the picture
    too much in post-processing, as I quite like the effect (dramatic).

    The bird is a large sea gull.
