    I love the lighting, the detail, and the composition of all of these. #4 is my favorite because it is incredibly sharp, and I love the catchlight in the eye.

    Fantastic.

    Hi Monte

    Nice set of shots with good detail and light. I think the turtle is my favourite.

    The only cc I have to add is that in #2 (the duck), the water seems to have a lot of noise (unless you've applied some special filter ). If it is noise, you could try selecting the water only and applying noise reduction.

    Nice images, Monte.

    Regarding the turtle, you might get a better image if you crop off most of the reflection. I know it's fun to capture the animal and it's reflection, but try cropping the bottom off beginning just below the water line. Only a small bit of the leg reflection should show at the bottom. In the original image, the reflection does not really contribute much to the image. After cropping, the viewer's full attention will be on the turtle.

    Looks like you had a nice paddle around. Great set of images. IMO the turtle and RWBB are the strongest two. Noisy water already mentioned, a little more room on the last one might work. Overall I'd consider it a successful outing.
