    I'm liking 1 although maybe a tighter crop with just the water and the silhouette rather than those darker areas up the top corners.

    #3 is a great angle for an action shot

    and #6 is Wow..fantastic reflections and nice skyline

    Great shots - how many did you take to get these 6? Quite a few I'm guessing. I would clone out the pole in #6.

    I'm lovin' them all!

    Seeing those has made me think I've really got to get out and take more pics of the birdlife around here.

    Any chance of a 1680x1050 of #6 for a desktop background?
