An excellent shot with an almost perfect reflection. The image appears very small on my screen and it is difficult to see any real detail. If you have enough pixels, it would be nice to see this in a larger format.   Posted: 01/22/2020 19:12:39

Hi Dave

What I like : The Natural environment, behavior of the bird is captured. The reflection and the '4' like shape adds the drama to the image. Colors look fine too.

What I would like to see : Image is very small to see any details. Also I personally love the reflections to connect, so we could have waited till the beak touches the water or the second leg.

All other parameters look very good. Thanks for sharing.   Posted: 01/27/2020 16:58:03
