    I made this image in Sand Hollow State Park, UT
    I saw these birds foraging in distance. So I picked my foreground/background with my camo wear and was flat on the ground.
    After quite some time birds came flying and landed in front of me. (I got Lucky)
    The camera was on Ground pod so I could not lift it higher


    Camera Settings:-
    ===============
    Nikon D850 600 f/4 + 1.4 x TCIII
    1/4000 sec; f/6.3; ISO 800
    Manual; Matrix metering


    Post Processing:-
    ===============
    Raw Processing using C1P 20
    Slight Crop for Leveling
    Tonal Adjustments in Viveza
    Neat Image NR
    Sharpening for Presentation (Topaz AI)
    Dodge selectively
    Clone one spot on the Lower right corner.

    Let me know your thoughts and comments.

    Thanks
    Krishna

    Hello Krishna, this is a very pleasing image with lovely tones and soft light. Nice alert pose by the BASP. I could see a crop with less at the bottom. I also might be inclined to clone the greyish ?bit in front of the legs. Love the BG!

    Krishna I am loving these low level images, your patience is paying off. I like the colours and you have good details on the belly.

    Yes, the colors and tones in this image are lovely and the bird in fresh juvenile plumage is a stunner. I would not change a single pixel.

    Very nice! I love the hint of reflection, and the striated BG is wonderful.

    Really pretty Krishna, as usual. You have a knack for small-in-frame for sure!

    Not much to add from the above notes on color palette and composition. My eyes were drawn to the subject reflection at bottom FWIW, if you wanted to take a crack at touching that up great but a super minor nit.

    Well done!
