I actually like the squirrel the best :-)

The first one seems a bit dark. Perhaps you are trying to protect the sky.

Second seems forcing a horizontal subject into a vertical frame.

The third has a bit too much foreground. I'd crop it into more of a panorama 2:1 format, and nudge the left side up a hair to make it level.

Nice shots overall.

SpecialK,

Thank you for the critique. I've gone back and made some edits per your recommendations. I cropped and nudged the third shot to give it more of the 2:1 feel you mentioned and worked on the shadows and highlights on the first.

Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers,

Phillip

Yep, I see detail in the shadows of #1 and the subject fits the frame better on #3.
