    Default Orange Sherbet... (C)

    I captured this image of a Flamingo at Gatorland in Orlando, Florida. When exiting the park after photographing at the rookery the walkway passes a exhibition of Flamingos. I have stopped a couple times to look and capture a few images. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Lots of good details and colors are well processed.
    Kind of different to see a landscape orientation on a flamingo portrait- usually see portrait to show the long neck.

    Nice one Joe:

    I think the story of this image is that giant bill. The Jimmy Durante look. Nicely exposed, soft background.

    A truly minor point, but I might soften the vertical yellow green edge just in front of the bill.

    Cheers

    Beautiful Joe and well captured along with the processing. Great details and love that bill and eye contact is what makes this for me. TFS

    Great title and I love the composition. This angle really shows off the face and that impressive beak. TFS

    Solid portrait. Framing is right on. Like the background as well. Now i want some orange sherbert.

    Nice. I even like the faint shadow across the top of the eye. Great colours. I'm with Randy in regards to the vertical stripe in front of the bill.
