    Every time I see your images from Maryland I think that I must go there someday.
    Lovely portrait John. Exposure perfect for the whites. Blacks a bit chocked and would try to get a bit more detail if possible.
    Love the IQ, the light and the water drop,
    Gail

    You get as close as I can get at my regular pond, except you have a better variety..
    Very nice closeup.

    Hi John, love the eye and the water drop. I agree with Gail that the blacks in some areas are choked. Nice portrait, thank you for sharing.

    The drop make this one, for sure. I love how you've managed equivalent headshots of male and female of this species. I might turn the highlights down the slightest bit here, but this is pretty perfect as presented.
