    John:

    Nicely exposed, drip a plus, soft background. She must have been close! Nice catchlight.

    Another beauty from you. Love the water, the EXP, Sh where it needs to be. To need f8, this must be a small crop. Love composition as well. TFS

    Lovely close look at that sloping forehead on this lady! Details, exposure, drip are all really nice. A species I see 2-3x per week but never in photo range.

    Hi John well done on all counts !!
    Only thing I might change is the tonal range .... a bit more Oomph and tonal depth to the mid tones !!

    She's a beauty. Awesome details on the face and neck. I kinda wish the body was not angled towards us though - more parallel to the sensor would have helped minimize how out of dof range it is. Having seen this species approximately zero times I am still envious of this!!
