    Very nice Image. Image shows yellow/Red cast not sure if it is due to Late Evening/ Early Morning Light.

    Reflection is cool.

    Great looking frame! Nice light, beautiful calm water which has provided a nice reflection too. Great exposure, pose from the bird and background as well.
    I wish the log ended before the edge of the frame but it still works as is. I'm not sure I detect any color cast as mentioned Krishna... it looks natural for a sunset/morning shot to me.

    This is really nice Kevin. I've hoped for a log shot like this for years, without success. Water and background and dreamy, and I do note the slight pinkish cast as pointed out by Krishna, particularly on the blue water. Would be nice to have the whole og, but this is still really nice as is. I particularly appreciate the wide-ish crop. The lighting is just killer.

    Great pose, lovely background, nice looking log (I think I recall seeing this before). Ditto comments about whole log, but not a deal-breaker. A handsome frame as posted. No one else mentioned it, but on my screen the bird feels as if just a tiny bit more sharpening would help.
