Really like the first one... maybe a tad to dark?

Awesome shots! I am new to all this, so I cant really give any input, but can you tell me what camera you used for these shots? Thank you.

Thanks, I'm pretty new at this too! I used a Nikon D90 with a Nikkor lens at 400mm. Then I edited them a bit in photoshop - basically auto-levels and auto-contrast, and then I darkened it up (a little too dark ) with curves. I actually made it really dark primarily to use it as my laptop background, and I just like that really deep, contrasting look.

great shots Evo,
they look perfect on my monitor but, that could be too dark on most others.
Mine is set a little lighter than most.
