You have done very well in your first attempt. Keep practicing. Do not hesitate to crop your images for better composition.
Thanks Jude for the comment and yeah these are all cropped pretty heavily, just need to get an extender to get a little closer.

Welcome Uzi!! I think these are a good starting point. I would agree with you about needing added focal length for this situation. Shooting through the window isn't doing you any favors either. Looks like a double pane at that. If there was anyway to get outside and photograph these guys I think your quality would improve dramatically. Keep at and keep posting
Thanks Tim, yeah the window is really killing the quality when viewing at 50%
or above and really not helping my ability to crop well. Actually looking at these after posting they look even worse then they do on my computer after the re-size must be the hosting.
I'm working on a way to get outside (and closer) to shoot, unfortunately this viewing area is at an active generating station on land owned by the power company. They are very concerned with liability, not that I blame them. The banks on the canal are very steep and the water moves very quickly when the turbine is on. I imagine they have litigation nightmares about someone falling in and drowning. I made friends with the caretaker that opens and closes the building to the public. Hopefully I can get a little more freedom of movement by promising not to die.
This place is only open on the weekends for a limited time frame but I'm hoping to go back and get to a better outside spot this weekend.
