The last two just ooze quality - simple, clean, crisp and effective
The first one at 1/15th on 450mm is quite something - are these tripod or handheld Chris

I like them all especially the swan. Amazing quality for hand held with the 150-450.

The duck is a real winner. The colours are wonderful. You must be very pleased with that camera -lens combo.

The lighting is so good, especially the backlit teazle and the swan.

Thanks Peter, yes the combo is pretty much my goto wildlife kit, just means I need to be at least 2m from the teasel for example cos of the min focusing distance.

The 150 - 450 does take a while to get used to and master.

'a little makeover' That's an understatement. Chrism8 took a great picture, (as always - must not be envious, (fail)) and then you created this. I love it, real art there as well as technical expertise. And please, don't just say 'all I did was...' Two great photographers / artists.
Be well, stay safe.

Btw, forgot to say that my favourite was the duck. The way you captured the colours and the ripples...
Be well, stay safe.

Following on from Peters swan edit, I've tweaked it on a similar level, but have left a bit more space around the swan.

Thanks Peter for the idea, it was quite easy to do, All I did was .............

I think the more space edit is better. Mine was too tight in hindsight.
