I would love honest feedback.

I like them both, If I were to nitpick I would say lighten the shadows slightly on the first, and under the seagulls chin. but they are both nice as is.

I really like the first one for its simplicity. I would have aimed for less reflection with a polarizer filter.

Thank you - the sun was pretty harsh. Good advice.

Thank you - I debated this one with myself. Ironically, the reflections are what drew me to this shot. I later thought I should have taken a few shots with the reflections diminished (cpl).

Not too sure about the first image. It seems like the crop is odd, but, I can't put my finger on it. Too much lead in, too straight on, wall cuts dead center on the top... just not sure why its awkward to me. It also seems like its been oversaturated, but, that could be this monitor.

I really like the second image and would only pick at the white on the neck and top of the head has lost some detail (blown out) and also the black near the tail. These are only nit picking though. I really like it and if the exposure in the white was just a touch less I wouldn't have a negative thing to say.

I think both photos would work better as black & White

I think they're both good. The bird seems blurred a bit towards his rear but that wasn't your fault. Good work!

And PS I think the reflections on the water give the photo more feel rather than staring into green emptyness. just my opinion
