Nice captures, Vivek. Pleasing reflections, and I like the water droplets coming off the beak in the first.

Assuming you're interested in constructive criticism, I would crop the top image from the top and right hand side significantly, with a tad off the bottom as well. This would place the bird and reflection in the "power" area (using the rule of thirds). I might take a similar approach in the middle one, depending on whether or not this is a crop of the original. The composition in the last one looks pretty good as is.

Don

Thanks for the critique. I appreciate it. I also thought of cropping it that way and it seems that the majority of folks prefer the crop you mentioned. My PC has been down for a few days, I shall correct it and repost it.

You're quite welcome. I've been participating more at NSN as well, and saw your post there, along with similar suggestions from the very capable photographers there.

Sorry about your PC problems - best of luck with that!
