    First image - The black spot on the bottom is very dominating but does nothing to work with the overall image. Generally, lacks sharpness.

    Second image - The building on the left is somehow uncomplimentary. You either leave it out completely or include it in your composition. Black spot on the right does nothing too. Lacks sharpness overall again.

    point taken, 1st photo places the tripod at the wrong spot, black spot is actually the ledge, thanks for your comments

    Sometimes it's hard to give tips on composition cos you were the one there and not us. It's easier to say what's wrong, but hard to give ways to improve cos they are not there to see the possibilities. Just gotta shoot more and get more critiques, slowly will improve

    Personally, I would have shot those 2 pics in landscape rather than portrait aspect (i.e. wider rather than taller). Maybe that's why they call it landscape mode

    Try zooming in a bit to get those distracting stuff out of view. When working in a workshop, people often say "measure twice, cut once". Same thing sort of applies in photography. Take some time to think about the composition before you shoot.

    Keep on shooting and posting. Will surely improve

    ISO 100, 200 was way too bright.

    wat was ur shutter speed use?
    use F-8.0 and the lowest iso value
    then try at different shutter speed to achieve the brightness u want

    I'm not sure what limitations you have with your camera or how much manual control you have over it. Typically, I would use f8 and with ISO 100, I use about 4-6, sometimes 8sec shutter speed.
