    Beautiful image. However, I would clone out the small dark bits between the bird and the reflection. Also, for me there is too much empty space. TFS

    Another stunner with full soft reflection. Agree with Paul on tighter crop if IQ holds up, but keep entire reflection. Love this canvas as is, though (can't get enough of that water). TFS

    Nice colors in the image. and texture for the background. I like the crop as presented. I would clone out the imperfections in the water.

    Hi Krishna, yet another beautiful capture, you seem to have a real touch with this type of image. For my personal preference, the crop is fine as it is, these birds have a lot of space around them in their typical environment and I think the composition reflects that. Also, the bird itself is pretty much on the 'rule of thirds' point (step it out with your fingers), which I think is why the composition looks well-balanced. The colour harmony between the bird and the warm tones in the BG helps too. As Paul noted, I would also suggest cloning out the few small surface imperfections on the water.
    Cheers, David

    Another beauty Krishna, I low the loose crop, and the pose is to die for. In a perfect world I'd have preferred less contrast between the blue and yellows in the BG, but I'd take this frame in a heartbeat

    Great wingstretch and light. If it were mine, I would definitely crop some off the bottom. Agree with Paul on the clean-up.
