    A very very cool frame. I really like the OOF ground. I am wishing just a sliver more on the right.

    I like the low angle and the light plus the soft beach environment but this HA does not work for me

    For something different I don't mind the pose on the bird, and I like the way the foreground diffuses into the legs. I would have liked the bird to have been on the other side of the frame though with the negative space on the right.

    I like this as something different. Also like how the legs just sort of disappear. I do agree that I wish the head angle was the opposite, meaning it had its head on the viewers side of its body. Also agree with Mike re the bird on the left side of the frame.

    Have to agree with all the above comments.
    Very nice ethereal feeling to this and I would like a sliver more on the bottom.
    I would very slightly boost the contrast or black point on the bird only

    Hi John, great low perspective, and I like the soft light. I would add a bit to the bottom for the rest of the virtual legs, and agree moving the bird to the opp side of the frame will work.
