    Hi Joe, I really like your composition on this black bellied and the waves and golden sun is very complimentary as it softens the stark black and white plover. nice!

    A very cool frame, Joe especially with that kind of light and color gradient. I do think the color needs to be tweaked a little bit?

    Nice frame Joe, I really like the shadow as well - nice touch. I agree with him being a little higher in frame if you have more of the foreground on the original.

    Next time I go to Florida this may be the top bird on my list to photograph. Just can not get anywhere near them up in NY. This is a beauty Joe. Great light and details on the bird. I love the colors of the water and that golden band.

    Great details and colours Joe. Nice HA and pose. Another vote for a wee bit higher in the frame.

    Will
