Nikon d80?

They don't look to bad. #4 has great back ground blur but it and # five looks like you shot them in the middle of the day when the sun was to high and gave you bad light. It looks like you cropped #4 a little two much and it is showing a lot of noise. Are you using a 135mm VR nikkor lens?

The pic with the geese taking off would be better if shot at a lower f-stop then 10 and an exposure faster then the 1/200 of a second you shot it at. With flying pics try to get the shutter speed up as high as you can get it with a low f-stop.

Pics number one and two :thumbsup:

The first pic looks like a macro shot but you should have used a local and a wide metering setting and stepped back just a tad more to get it into proper focus
The Cannon puts out some sharp pictures but they look cold..perhaps you could have dialed in just a little more saturation on the camera and maybe check the EV might need just a tad more darkening on some shots..invest in a circular polarizer for those water shots and you will be amazed.
The composure is excellent
