nice set

#5 stood out for me, the lighting on the gull is nice. there is alot of empty space, but for some reason it worked for me in this shot.

That one was not cropped, just slight pp editing with sharpness. I was amazed that the ef-s 55-250 focus fast enough to catch that gull. Them bif's move way to fast

Wow, I really like the bif's here, especially the gull... didn't except that the 55-250 would produce such nice results when it comes to bif's

I would go for the second shot of the palm trees... don't really know why

Maggo,

Like Hards pointed out, I love the way number 5 turned out. I really did not expect to get that kind of results with the 55-250, did not think it would have been fast enough. Good thing those bif's were not flying as high.

These look rather nice. Good variety of shots and lighting conditions. My only negativity is #1..

Im failing to see anything in focus in this shot. This could be because of resizing/size requirements etc. but on both my monitors the whole frame looks like a gaussian blur was applied

NMRecording,

I looked at the photo of the orginal of the first one and it is sharper then the one that ended up being posted. Guess I really should get a photobucket or flirkr account.
