    This is a beauty, Joe. Nice comp, sparkling whites and luscious green water. Could have gone with 1/2500.

    Joe:
    Nice dorsal view, banking pose. The feet are very colorful, but wish they were a bit sharper, as your eye is drawn to them because of that color.

    The bokeh of the upper background seems a bit busy to me, and might try to smooth it just a bit.

    Cheers

    The dorsal view is great. Nice detail in those whites. Love the green water.

    Hey Joe. The whites look great against the nice green background. A beautiful position on the bird, wish the feet were a little sharper.
