Default picture in a bright sunlight

i had a oppurnity ro take a few pictures of a pair of crane near my surrounding, as it was a very bright morning and i have to capture the image against the sun,it created exposure problem for me, i tried with shutter priority, but as there was not much time to experiment i opted for iA mode, here are few.Can it be improved with post processing..? I dont know much about that, except for picasa's " i am feeling lucky" option..!! pl. help and guide thanks ..posting by adjusting the size only.suggestions are welcome as always...thanks again..friends..

jim-

Shooting into the sun is both demanding and challenging. The best you can hope for is to use some Exposure Compensation and force your subjects into a shilouette, if you cannot re-position yourself.

Number 2 might benefit from some fill light added. That can be done in Picasa.

I think #3 stands up on it's own as a silhouette, if you not after a silhouette, in back lit shots like these, you will need to over expose by a couple of stops, or you could use spot metering on the subject then lock the exposure with the AE lock button or keep the shutter release half pressed and re-compose your shot.

Thanks a lot mate for the guidance..yes, it can be used in that way..perhaps RAW format would be better option for these type of situation ..?

Both the crains were in good mood and enjoying the surrounding , only problem was the bright sun light against the camera..!!
