    Hi Geoffrey, handsome greater scaup in that icy cold water! I would suggest another round of sharpening most importantly the head/bill area and might try opening up the blacks there as well. Maybe a blue cast? Glad you survived the rocks!

    Love the pose and the waves. Well captured under less than ideal lighting conditions. Ann's suggestions worth a try.

    Thanks Ann, Artie, John, and Bill. I agree, it could use more sharpening.
