not as much as they were attracted to the bread you were bribing them with :lol:

nice shots.


P.S. If you are going to put a copyright notice on the shots, you should include your name in there as well.....

for me the bread ruins the first one as it really shows that this is not the wild..

the second one is more natural.. and thus more appealing.. though i think a lower perspective would have been a more appealing angle.. the best angles are usually eye level with an animal, exp at such short working distances.. this of course can be violated in areas with mountains and hills and such, but when its apparent the angle comes from you being much taller than the animal its not as flattering.

i prefer the second one as well, a really nice shot! the first one, i find the reeds/grass(?) in the foreground a little distracting.

I like the 2nd as well. I think the ripples in the water make the shot much more dynamic and give it a real sense of life.

The second has a better tonal range and is nicely saturated. You could almost be there. I think its a fantastic shot, and very natural looking. An excellently taken shot and perfectly processed. jumps of the screen...
