    I like the first best.
    I would have liked the third best (most intense colours there!), if not the elements of civilisation had become so prominent there. They're still more on the side when the sun was still that tiny bit higher up (interesting to also see the sideways motion, though!) and less to be seen, as the sun is behind that tree ...

    Come to think of it, though, the colours really are best in the last, and I like that one for the fact that two rough parts of water plus that smoother part are included in the frame (smooth part cropped in the top two), with the clearest, "wholest" reflection of all.

    So now I am all :scratch: ...

    My favorite is the third one, because of the intense color.

    Third for sure, because of the intense color, reflection, and straight horizon.

    Nice work, i've been shooting quite a bit of these long lens sun shots recently. They are not as easy as they seem. Alot of logistics involved, short amount of time to get the shot, among other things.

    I'd go with the 3rd one, too.. because of the stronger contrast, I'm a sucker for contrast though. The spread of light from the sun gives more of an 'uplifting' feel to it.
