    Super nice Gail, the setting, the color contrast: golds/orange, and the preening. Exposure is spot on. Nice details, love the feet. If it were mine i'd be tempted to clean up the specular blobby thing bout half inch above the toe. Wel done

    Good eyes Ann. I never even noticed that blobby thing. "OUT SPOT, OUT".

    I really like this one Gail. Splendid detail and I love the FG and BG colours. An unusual HA which works well here. Good control of the blacks/whites. The colours on the eye, bill and legs gives the image a nice colour boost.

    I love it...save for that blobby thing Lol. I love the pose! Of course, the OC could not have taken one big step forward now could it! I like it as is anyhow, the surroundings are beautiful.

    The pose and the setting are right on. Really like all that seaweed on the rocks here.
