    Didn't do anything special, to my i think the lighting in the background is a little bright, and I was actually balancing on two rocks above the river, so focus could of been better to

    #1: You are correct in that the issue in this photo is the lighting. The foreground is too dark and the background is too bright; anything else probably wasn't possible in the location you were at and the time of day.

    #2: It looks like there is some kind of weird smear on the lens causing certain areas (for example, near the bird's feet) to appear...dusty?

    #3: Rule of thirds? Seems out of focus, but that doesn't really matter since I don't really get what the subject of this picture is.

    #4: A more interesting angle than #3, but it appears everything is out of focus. Still confused as to the subject.

    What lighting conditions were you shooting at for the second photo with the bird? Your ISO is pretty high, indicating that it's a low-lit scene, but your Aperture is set to f/8. Could it not be set more open to let in more light, because your shutter speed is relatively slow. I disagree about your third photo being the best; it is my least favorite, and the subject isn't really clear.

    yea, i don't shoot above ISO 400 unless i need to. You could have done ISO 200 and maybe at f/6.3 (or whatever). F/8 is ok, seems you have plenty of ambient light.

    You shoot ISO 1600 on the first shot? seems kinda noisy. Worst time of day to shoot, imo :). Keep pluggin' away!
