    Bill :

    Great bow wake, like seeing the feet, well exposed. Nice angle in frame.

    Cheers

    Nice light you had, maybe sharpen a tad more?

    Love the wake in front of the bird. Nice light as well. Neat to see the rear foot through the water.

    Nice light and I like the visible foot.
    I think the head could use a bit of sharpening/contrast.

    Good one, Bill. Like the hairdo and bow wave in beautiful light.

    Thank you all. When I looked at this on my screen prior to posting I feared it might be borderline oversharpened. But as posted I agree it could use a slight touch.
