i like the composition a lot man, nicely done.
which semi-manual exposure mode are you using?
Also, what was your focal point?
anytime you're shooting a live subject, the focal point should be the eye.
also, with wildlife, you want to get on their level as much as possible. get as low to the ground as you can (i get that the zoo leaves limitations for that haha) and get as close to eye-level as you can with them.
Thanks for the tip! I was shooting above on program mode, since I was 'am' so new at shooting, I'm learning the ropes. Right now, i'm trying to stick with aperture priority just so I can understand how to match shutter speed so that eventually I can move up to manual mode and be efficient. Shutter priority is rather useless for me for a few reasons.. One is i'm still using a kit lens, so I don't have a very great F stop and two is that i'm much more interested in still life. I've used bulb a few times just to get a long exposure on the beach, but thats about it. Oh, and my cameras ISO is kind of terrible.. 400 is the highest where the pictures displayed on my computer are still bearable.. After that, they get quite noisy.
Here's a few new ones.. Still learning on how to brush up some photo editing, so be real with the criticism.
