    This is my first ever attempt at photographing water. I am not completely pleased with my results. I would like to make them better. If someone could point out what I did wrong that would be great.

    It depends entirely on what you would like as far as results. What would you like to see?

    It looks like in both photos you've blown out the center w/ the sun's reflection.

    Is that what you don't like?

    I think of all subjects water needs to be shot with a level camera or lacking that straightened in Photoshop. But that is just my opinion. Also with a digital camera you have to expose for the highlights. Does your camera have a histogram display. Look at that next time and keep the highlights under control.

    increase your f stop maybe so the colors won't be so blown out?
