Decided to grab a K30 since right now they represent tremendous value.

Went out VERY early with it and the 55-300. Quite happy with these.

oh - love the first two - they are really so dreamy .

The third one has some magnificent reflections .

Ditto TTs comments for the first two although I find the yellow boat and the red door in competition with each other, it's a bit "in your face" having said that I don't think posting it alongside the other two shot's helps.

Might selectively tone down the red door then.

Thanks for the comments chaps!

I do like them all, but the first shot is tremendously good.

Can we see a monotone of the third, please? Methinks it's ripe for it

PS Exactly how many cameras do you need?
PPS All good shots, I need to get up earlier!

My reason for liking the 3rd one as much as I do :-

Yes the colours are rather on the bright side - but you can't be blamed for the colours

What really gets to me is the stillness of the water and the quality of the reflections - the only thing that , in a way, spoils it is the reflection of the railings - and again - unless you clone them out [ and that would be a horrendous job ] again you can't do anything about that .

I'm pretty sure that if you had posted #s 1 & 2 on a thread of their own , and a couple of days later #3 and possible another from that area , you would have had nothing but praise for them all

really Like #3, but was drawn to the atmosphere on the bottom of #1 and this is roughly how I'd crop it....

You are probably right! And glad you like that one! I will certainly have a play with a mono conversion too.

And Smeggy - that's really interesting crop suggestion! I had'nt thought of that. I like it a great deal.

I've tweaked a similar shot to second one but a bit more contrasty:
