    Joe:

    Very nice soft plumage, head angle, soft light, water with some detail (ripples) without being distracting. I think there are several good options on cropping this one. Because of the birds pose, a vertical crop would work well also.

    Cheers

    Love the soft light and that white against the green. A vertical could also work well. TFS

    Randy and David, thank you for viewing and commenting. I so have a vertical worked up but I am fond of negative space in a image. This repost I tightened the crop, looking at the original post I thought there was too much negative space.

    The white bird goes great against that green water. I like those ripples as well. Preening pose is anoter bonus.
