    To be totally honest they look like snapshots. If you want the money shot you need to get closer and have better lighting :o

    Maybe not high noon :mamoru: Also a polarizing filter would help a lot.

    Again that 18-200mm has the ugliest bokeh. There shot at a very uninteresting angle.

    If your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough.

    I think you're supposed to call fish and wildlife if you spot a gator over 6ft that's close to a residential area aren't you? :dunno: those look like 7-8 footers.

    and don't worry about getting too close, they'll just go into the water if they feel bothered, unless you're furry and weight <30lbs they won't charge you. I do it all the time going canoeing. plus it's after hatching season so they should be pretty spent by now.

    you have to get close enough to fill the frame with a wide angle if you want a decent picture
