    Love the light, the water (including the top and bottom), the EXP and the sharpness where it counts. TFS

    looks nice Dan, might try to pull more details in the head area if raw has it. I don't care for the dark ban on the top border maybe you can clone it out to see how it looks

    Nice light and details. I don't know the bird but is there a slight blue cast?
    Also, some tricky horizontal lines that suggest some CW rotation.

    Nice swimming pose with good HA. Rotation looks OK to me based on catchlight reflection. Arash has a good point; might consider a bit of crop from the top. Tough to get the exposure right on these birds, but I think you came pretty close. You might consider (on the next encounter with them) boosting the ISO and the SS (unless the ISO 200 is a typo),
