Hi saly

Both shots speak of the evening!

What a great set of colours in the water reflection for the 1st one.

And the 2nd bird is such a crisp silhouette!

Gorgeous autumnal colours in #1. #2 has a very serene feeling.

First one looks like an Impressionist painting, wonderful shots.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments. Both of these were accidental shots, to be honest. In both cases I was trying to photograph the birds, only to find out later that the surrounding or the effect was much more interesting than the subject.

Accident or not, they are both really nice. That first one especially is really awesome.
