Quite a nice set with good sharpness.
If I might make a suggestion, when it comes to water reflections (like shot 2 in particular) - try to get the whole reflection in the frame or zoom in closer. :twocents:

Very nice sharpness on all Kenny. Love the open beak American Wigeon shot especially. No park ducks up here, so have to use blinds and lots of patience to get within even twenty yards.

You have a very nice set there. I really like the profile shot in number 5 and the look your being given in the last one. What kind of lens do you have on there that's giving you 700mm focal length?
