I'll give you a short one since 6.16 is a good score. Composition is nicely done and the reflection is a great element. Basically I would like a little fill flash to give more detail to the birds. Otherwise nice image.

This one is really really good. One of the best I've seen so far. How wet did you have to get to take this shot?

like this very much - but IMO the lighting being from the right side of the birds puts them too much in the shade in this picture, maybe taking the photo with the sun at your back, or using fill flash would help, overall nicely done

This shot is just wonderful. Brings back such great memories for me - there's nothing more peaceful in the world than a scene like the one you have represented here. And you've done it beautifully. The lighting is perfect, the reflections are great, the composition is lovely... Bumping up. 10

7 - Nice capture. Familiar looking 'mirrored surface'.. Nice composition. Criticism; difficult, but even 'sharper', with more 'pop', make this better in my opinion. Perhaps a crop variation, depending of course what you had to work with, particularly on the right - more fine tuned to include/exclude that 'bubble'. Again, 'depending' what you had to work with, but more space above or below (below perhaps better re the reflections), using the shore/water line too, just for more overall 'balance', make it better in my opinion.

Great shot...I love the reflections. The birds are pretty dark and so have lost some detail..shadow recovery might help but still very nice.

Nicely composed, but perhaps it needs to be lightened up?

Just a little dark on the subjects. Lighting them up with software.

This is really beautiful. Love the low perspective and reflections. Looks like a winner to me. 10.
