    Hello Joe, I love the bird's plumage and the water reflection on the body. I'm not a fan of ripple reflections. I think a crop eliminating the reflection of the head will look better. TFS.

    Nice POV. Whites look good.
    Good, solid image.

    Nice to see the bill open with all that vegetation and fish. Also like the rippled reflection. The blue and white go nicely together.

    I'm OK with this rippled reflection Joe---makes for an interesting contrast to the nicely focused bird above. The shade of blue in this BG water makes a striking setting for such a bright subject and really makes the yellows of the bill pop.

    I love the white on the blue, but the bird looks a bit soft to me. I agree with Juan about the rippled reflection.

    Nice on all counts. I love the caustics. A bit too much salad and not enough fish?
