Nice texture in the waves in #1 & #2 - prefer the colour in #1 to B&W. #3 has very interesting colours/reflections. #4 & #5 have good texture, but do not jump out at me. Would go with #1 then #3.

I can't take my eyes off #3. I love the colors and patterns. I like the idea of photographing rust for texture. But to best see the texture of rust, you want to photograph it on something that still has areas that are not rusted so you can see the contrast between the two.
You like to photograph birds -- what about shooting one really close up so we can see the texture of its feathers? Or try cropping a shot of a bird that zeros in on its feathers?

I do like the textures and overall effect of the Fresnell lens shot, but there's such a small area overall that's in tack sharp focus (lower left) that I'm distracted looking for sharpness in the rest of the image.
From the set you've posted, I prefer the B&W of the birds. To me it captures the variation in water texture better than the color version (which to me is compromised by the color shift to brown in the middle and lower half.

I took a lot of shots of that lens but it was hard to pick out one that popped, it just did not come across when looking at it to the capture. Thanks for the feedback
