Default Some ZS3 shots from New York, feedback welcome

Brought the ZS3 on a trip to NY recently. Just wanted to see how it(and I) am doing in composition, and camera settings, etc.

Thanks Sarah. I thought the first one was a bit overexposed, the sky seemed blown out. Perhaps Ev compensation on that one would have helped? It was a windy day and I was so busy trying use a ledge as a tripod for the picture that I forgot about settings.

The last one was such a gray drizzly day, I wasn't sure what to do with the sky, so I used the framing to distract from the sky. but was there anything I could have done with settings on such a gray day?

Loren-

Photo #1 might be on the edge of over exposure, but not really bad. On the last one where you had a gray, drizzly day, there is just no way beyond some post processing to make that last photo look better.

Very nice shots. I think the last one looks just fine. You can't expect the weather to be perfect all time, besides the reflection in the water looks nice.

That type of weather is a killer. Even the best camera will have problems dealing with high contrast (not to mentioned that grey days are never too pleasing to the eye).
