    Superb light and EXP on the whites, the pose and the darker BG also spot on. I am loving this canvas and only wish the darker transition line in the BG wasn't there. I love it as is though. TFS

    Love the white bird against that dark water. The blowfish is another big plus. The low angle is right on.

    The blowfish makes the frame for me Bill.

    Ideally the harsh bkg transition would be more subtle but lighting is fantastic here.

    Great pose, and very neat to get him with the Blowfish, Bill. Beautiful light, and I like the raised foot.

    Killer lighting! The fish looks like a piece of popcorn to him! The low angle is really nice, and the raised foot is some nice action. Composition is perfect. Face is getting a bit hot, but otherwise feather detail is really nice. A fine image!
