Hello Maertens.

I believe that the reptile you have pictured is called a Painted Turtle.
In many parts of North America they can be found in city parks in ponds where people discard them after tiring of having them as pets.
If you do an internet search for Painted Turtle you can find all kinds of information on them.

My first thoughts on looking at the photo is that there is far too much info in the shot. When looking at the crab my eyes are drawn away to the sand. There is too much going on. I am not sure how it could be shot so that the crab is the centre of attention but maybe from up above focusing straight down on it.

It is a nice attempt at capturing the Dolphin. I would have liked it more if taken in a manner so that more of the Dolphin is visible. Higher above the mammal would show more

Photo is great .
the only thing thing would make it better is if you had included a description of what the bird is,it's habitat and it's migratory routes in Europe.It adds to a photo when there is a description.
I do know that it is a Whooper Swan but would have liked to know about it.

I like this photograph but found that it did not look right to me. Two things that catch my eye are that 1 it looks skewed like the horizon is not level. Now there is no visible horizon and the clouds may have something to do with this by causing an illusion.
The second thing is that Ito me it felt like there was far too much empty space in the bottom third of the frame.
I did a workshop on it and cropped out the bottom part of the frame so that it was divided more evenly and so that the sun was not so centred in the shot.I felt that even with the tree as a frame for the sun that there was still too much emptiness.
Check the workshop and see if you can see a positive difference.

Beautiful shot . I rely like the whole "feel" of the shot. Are you sure that you didnt take that photo here on the west coast where it rains all winter?
The exposure is great with just enough lag to trail the rain drops.
Bravo

When I first looked at the photograph I wondered what the subject was. In my opinion there is far too much rock in the photograph and the eye was not led to the flowers.I found my self looking for what was in th ephoto other than rock.The flowers seem insignificant.
Next time try to make the flower more of the focal point of your shot. It would have made a positive difference if the flowers were not so close to the border of the frame.
Also it appears that you used the rocks in the centre of the photo as your focus point and this has caused the flowers to be out of focus.
Nice attempt. Try again. Look forward to seeing more.

The bird appears to be a Swallow. I note this because of it's wide mouth which is effective for cactching insects as it flys.I can also see anothe ron behind it.
Nice phot of the baby bird.

An interseting photograph. If I were to change anything about the photo I would suggest that you removed the marking on the lower left that appear to be red dots. If using the ship in the photo as you did I would have thought it may look better if the ship was not at the edge of the frame.
Other than that you did the best you could with the conditions.
