Good capture. You were in the right place at the right time. Edits are good, except I'd prefer to not have all that empty space on the left. You could center it a bit more and still leave space on the left for the bird to fly into.   Posted: 10/12/2019 13:18:19

Great stop action and you got the reflection too. I like your composition which allows us feel the action of that moment. Great job in the amount detail you were able to bring out in the bird's wings and the reflection. I am really impressed with being able to see both the top and underside of the bird. We usually don't get to see a bird from this perspective.   Posted: 10/16/2019 20:16:00
