    The fourth photo is absolutely fascinating! That half sunken boat gives you SUCH a lovely background and sooo ups the overall dynamics of that photo (not lightwise, but compositional dynamics, if there is something like that ... it exists in my mind, at least).

    ALL the others are good, too. Never a doubt about that with any of "lostprophet's" photos! Never! He (i.e. you :D) wouldn't post any "bad" photo.

    But the fourth is SPECIAL.

    I agree with LaFoto. All of them are nice, but #4 is a really neat photo. Very cool boat and almost makes you think that the duck's home is inside the boat.

    The last two are a little disturbing, but pretty cool that you captured such a crazy thing out in the wild. :D

    Wonderful series....really like the 'eye level' perspective. The Chloe looks like it's posing for you. And I agree completely with the previous posters that the half-sunken boat adds a great element to the composition of shot 4

    #4 is by far the best. But they are all amazing.
