QEII Penang

QEII PenangFrom a composition point of view it looks like a difficult place to shoot. The surroundings are very busy with quite a few distractions. The building itself is quite an interesting shape and has some good contrasting tones. The sky looks good and would make a good backdrop to the shot if you could have re-positioned to isolate the building a little more, maybe also making use of reflections in the water in front of it.

Monarch of the Orme

Monarch of the OrmeI feel the same on the matter of the sky. You could edit one in as long as it looked natural.
This technique is sometimes overdone and with a totally unrealistic sky addition.

I too like the pose of the subject. Looking very commanding and rather majestic so good on you for the timing of the shot. A bit too much foreground for me. We can see it is a hill from the angle so I think you could safely lose a third of the grass. Maybe a square crop would work.
You can't always choose your skies and I have so many shots that I dump because of a flat, grey and boring background. You took the opportunity to capture a magnificent looking animal and that much of the shot is really good.

Roller

RollerFrom my very amateur point of view, there is not alot wrong with this shot at all. Focus on the eye is perfect and the depth of field allows for some of the thorny branches to be thrown out of focus.
All I would suggest for this would be to clone out the intruding thorns on the right. They appear from nowhere. Removed, they would make the right hand outline of the bird clearer.
