I like the graceful ballerina pose photo the best. Thank you for the comment on my in-flight photos. I've finally learned the secret is to hold the shutter release down and keep ripping off shot after shot. Then back home I throw out the rubbish finding that the odds are in your favor one or two photos will be presentable. Fast shutter speed is essential too. Give it a try next time out.

You certainly have a good eye. The pictures are not only good ... the composition is wonderful. I love all of them, but the reflection is my favorite.
Nice work.
