    Krishna beautiful shot with warm colors. I do think it is a little too hot would look better taken down some Some of the background is distracting but that is what we get with shorebirds sometimes.
    I have the same problem with mine.I am not sure but could it use some rotation? TFS

    Lovely colours throughout. I would try lowering the contrast, and some clockwise rotation. The reflection adds.

    Will

    Nice light and feeding pose.
    Image needs some rotation and I would clean up the water in the LLC.
    The whites on the flank are slightly hot- looks like you can save them,

    One of the most underrated shorebird, shown beautifully! Details are excellent across the bird, and we can see just enough leg and beak to keep it interesting. Yes to a bit of rotation, and yes to toning down the flank a bit.

    Image Rotation. Burning highlights and cloning foreground.
