    Great weather today, except it was a little windy. Shot in RAW and as always the EXIF is there.

    1 - Nice photo. Good comp & focus, clear subject, eye catching.
    2 - Cool subject but looks busy. Crop out the shoreline from the top and the dock on the left. Also either increase the DOF so that all the birds are in sharp focus, or shoot wide open, focusing on a couple individual birds. The in between way (not enough DOF for all and too much DOF for just a single subject) looks half-hearted and confused.
    3 - I can't quite pinpoint it but it just doesn't look catchy to me. It looks as if you tried to take a picture of the proverbial "kitchen sink." If I were you, I would have pointed the camera a bit more to the left to get rid of the distracting dock on the right and show the entire building on the left.
    4 - Cool subject but I'm not a fan of harsh backlighting and semi-silhouetteness. I don't really understand your composition in this one too.

    IN #3 I was going to not capture th UN building but there was an ugly building there and I wanted the most of the Queenboro Bridge. In #4 I was kind of going for the leading lines.

    I don't have any technical input since you are a much better photographer than I am, but I wanted to say that I personally liked #2. It made me smile to see all those birds lined up on the posts. (I really like #1 as well, very nice).
