Tough night with a complete overcast and storm coming by.

This is my first time outside with my 55-250 IS

200 shots, not that many that I really liked but here is one.

Hum... I see that the forum doesn't resize pictures. What's the maximum allowed/suggested?

for #1 I'd clone out the swans feet on the right and I'd crop the picture so that the subject is a little more out of centre, apart from that I like it, it breathes some sort of serenity.

Not sure what to suggest for sizes, I've just copied the links from my flikr page and embedded them in past posts without issues.

#1 The swans pose is good, but I think the lighting is not in your favor. I can't make out much detail, like feathers, on the right side of the swan, and unfortunately it looks like there isn't any good light on its head, which should be the main focal point, leaving it dark and drab.

#2 I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to achieve with this photo. The floating tires seem slightly out of place and distracting. You might try cropping them out and drawing more attention to the boats, which are more interesting.


Equipment:
Canon - 40D, 24-105mm f/4 L
Sigma - 10-20mm f/4-5.6, 150mm f/2.8 Macro, 50mm f/1.4
Other - Canon Speedlite 430EX II

nice sharp images...so that is good.
number 2 is iffy to me....a better composition of the image...rule of thirds would help.

on number one, for me the swan is too bright, I am not sure if you burned the edges but maybe try lightening the water a little. Good tries though...again great sharpness!

cheers
