Hello. My first post here :)

I was testing my Canon SX30IS. So i went to duck pond near the school. and took some pictures of ducks. It was too bright. I think I have to play more with exposure values.

Cool shots! :)

I like the 5th, you really did a good job freezing the ducks in motion!

The 4th IMO is a bit odd, why didn't you focus on the duck? I realize that you wanted the duck out of focus, but why? It's a neat effect, but I don't really care for it myself.

In the second, I like you you blurred the leaves out. It gives it the effect that you're standing in a field, but you're still focused on the duck.

Thanks for reply.

I like the 5th too. I thought that they were trying to fly over me but they landed much earlier :)
4th I was focusing on the grass. It looked kinda weird at the beginning. but then liked it.

Love the first shot of the second batch. I can't pinpoint it but it has a real dramatic effect.
