    This is a very pleasing image to me. Something different having all three together. With the one on the left turning toward the camera I do not mind the others facing away. The half outstretched wings add the focal point in my opinion. Sharp, nice detail, raised foot. The little guy on the right looks as if he just got into trouble. Nice job!

    Gary.

    Simply sublime. The view of the back, tail and wing feathers on the middle bird, the two bookends and the water/reflections. All spot on. I know what most will say, I don't need HAs on a wonderful behavior image like this. TFS

    The complimentary colors in the one work very well. Framing is right on. Also like those ripple reflections. Nice one.

    Love this shot, tells a great story in a beautiful scene. Being picky maybe a little CCW rotation to level the ripples?

    I really like this, it does tell a story, I too wondered about rotation, a straight line from the bill on the LHS to it's reflection indicates it might be beneficial.
