    Nice low angle. Like all the blue. Bird looks a little soft.

    I like the low angle and the separation of the background.

    Very nice Joe. The blue colours in the BG show the bird well. Great POV. I would try sharpening the head a little.

    John, David, and Will... thank you for viewing and commenting. I looked at the image after reading John's comment. The sharpening was lower than I normally would do, so I bumped the sharpening up and reposted the image.

    I like the way the white bird looks against the blue water. Nice pose and head angle as well. The rest part of the bird that is shaded is not ideal. You have a blue cast in the rear shaded part of the bird as well.
