Very nice! I think I would crop a bit off the bottom on #1 and lower the horizon a little. It's almost too close to centered right now, and the foreground really doesn't add anything. Crop it to just about the edge of hte water and see how you like it.

Beautiful colors on your first one. It's too bad for the power lines... I also like the last one for the composition. Very nice series. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice series of shots here, I really like the second and third ones with the bird silhouettes.

Thanks for sharing,

I really like these, well done! Did you use the in-camera HDR or did you do it in PP?

First and third are just great IMO, I'd crop second one though.

I like the Heron shots in silhouette. Minimalist but they work well.

In a perverse way I think the power lines add to the sunset shot. They lead the eye and give the photo a sense of scale. Without them the photo might be rather flat and uninteresting.
