    What a coincidence!  I was recently out in one of our parks, and as I
was going to a work-related dinner with my wife, hadn't brought my camera.
Big mistake. There was  great shot of a whole family of ducks lined up
along the edge of a pond, with the mother duck looking on.  I always seem
to spot a dozen good pictures when I don't bring my camera.  You are wiser
than I.
    The main's composition is better, but I like the story that alternate
one tells.  The light in the second alternate seems a little harsh, but the
composition is nice, and it is a nice slice of life shot.  The third
alternate is my favorite.  You really capture the sense of infinity in the
sea and sky in this shot.
