    Love this canvas overall. The light, reflected light, colorful BG water and sky, placement of subject, SH, details and mostly those eyes. TFS

    Very pleasing image, Krishna. Nice wing positions and love the view of the feet. Great colors throughout and I like your choice of composition. I might be inclined to dodge the darker wave and clone the tiny ripple on the RHS.

    Krishna:

    Neat incoming shot, like the eye contact, display of bird aerodynamics, smooth background.

    I might consider cropping up from the bottom to the start of the slightly darker blue, and perhaps lower the brightness just a bit overall.

    Cheers

    Love it! Perhaps a bit bright as per Randy, but this image has impact for me. Good job.

    Thank you all for the comments.

    I processed this image using my laptop. I think that could be reason for image being a bit brighter.

    Here is a repost with the changes

    As soon as I opened the thumbnai lI thought the image was way too bright.
    But you have addressed the issue and the repost is much better.
    I like where you placed the goldeneye in the frame.Great incoming pose and sharp.
    I would decrease the luminance in the blues in LR (if you have it). Moving the slider down 5 or 6 points would really make the water look great. I think you could decrease the brightness a bit more.

    Nice incoming pose. Like how the bird is right above the water. Framing looks right on to me.
