    C&C welcome, keep in mind I just got a new lens today and was just out taking some sample shots (therefore, other than cropping on some - there is no post processing done).

    Nikon D90 + Nikon 80-200 f/2.8

    #1 & #2 look great!

    #3, water shots of beavers, otters and other furry critters are tough. The ripples in the water kill the reflection from the trees and gives everything above the beaver a blurry look. This would be fine if the beaver stood out more.......not sure what to suggest.

    Congrats on the new glass, that 80-200 2.8 is on my NEED list.

    The squirrel shot gets my vote - nicely composed, good light and I like the tones.

    Like the duck, Love the squirrel!
    Maybe cropping would help the beaver stand out more?
