This made me smile!! You have captured the moment really well. Love the way the chap is angled to get his photo of the Cormorant (?). Well spotted and well taken!!   Posted: 11/10/2020 06:46:55

Perfect timing and nice subject, the repeated shadows give depth for the photo along with the people there. The bird looks like it knows that it is being photographed which makes the story more funny and beautiful.   Posted: 11/15/2020 06:13:53

Marius, timing is of essence, in addition to be at the right place at the right time, and specially being ready !!. This image of the the Cormorant being photographed, and indeed as you title states, posing for the picture is the center of the story. The satisfaction expression in the face of the photographer adds humor to the story. The photographer has mastered the use of the phone camera just holding with one hand. At first I thought that the people in the background were distracting, but on a second thought it add depth to the seen, and being out of focus helps. The image is sharp and the colors are well handled in a backlith situation. As an added note, the Cormorant looks different than the ones we have here in Florida, so I looked it up. It happens that there are at least 42 varieties. If you hover over the name, an image will pop up. (   Posted: 11/15/2020 06:36:02

Marius, the look of glee on the photographer's face tells it all. There is a nice triangular shape formed by the man's head, the bird and the phone camera which keeps the eye moving around the image. You caught the man under the umbrella so there are no harsh shadows on his face. Background is sufficiently blurred so as not to be distracting and tells of the beach environment. Nicely done!   Posted: 11/18/2020 05:33:26

My first impression.... 'crack me up'! The man is clearly enjoying the moment while the bird seems as if it could care less. Very sharp image with the added depth of the receding umbrellas into the distance. Great timing on the capture. Thanks. B   Posted: 11/18/2020 18:26:10

This photo shows that other things can be done on a beach besides just sunbathing. The man enjoys taking pictures, just like we do. Background is sufficiently out of focus. Pleasant photo   Posted: 11/20/2020 07:18:38
