Hmmmm couldn't get the other pics to load.

There has to be a better way to upload pictures rather than one at a time.:|

The duck pic looks all too familiar. Light on one end and dark on the other. I think you have to judge where the sun is and wait for the duck (goose, swan, whatever) to turn to where the lighting is more even.

Or...try a day when it is a bit overcast. If it's not too dark then the evenlighting makes for a good pic.

Now there's a second duck pic and with asimilar light/dark problem. You could lighten that picfor the dark areabut that will likely blow out the lighter area.

I'm guessing you took these pics in late afternoon? for the fountain pic, the faster the shutter the better, even if it comes out dark you can adjust it later. For falling water droplets it's more important to capture the moment, OR if you wanted to use a motion blur effect then use a much longer shutter speed, like 1/2 second or so.

If you wanted to use a faster shutter than the available light would allow, you could even use a fill flash. There's enough ambient light to not wash out the pic with it, and it would make each droplet really sparkle!

With that lighting, the rippled water in the duck pics looks really cool

Thanks for the feedback.
The ducks and the fountain were taken in the late afternoon and sort of into the sun, therefore the darkness on the near side of the ducks.

I have a lot to learn but it is fun taking pictures again.
