    Love it. Great detail and depiction of the process. You might just crop a tad off the top, but good as is.

    Now this is a frame i am jealous of. Everything looks great here. Nice behavior with good processing as well. Background and composition are right on.

    Great capture and timing. Details are excellent. The laborious process of emerging is evident. Would love to capture something like this.
