    I like the IQ, and the light and rich colours. Water texture is excellent, particularly the bowl around the subject. I can't help but wish the phalarope was not so low in the frame though.

    Kevin, to me the IQ on this one is better then the other recents (while they were also nice).

    The lighting is so moody here it really has a peaceful feel. But, it does feel like it might be a touch dark on my screen(s)? See what you think but I wonder if lifting .2-.3 in LR could benefit.

    Could see how Daniels' thoughts on bumping the subject up a touch in frame might help.

    I agree with you Brian I lightened up the background water and had a little more at the bottom as Daniel suggested.

    Nice Point of view.

    The repost is good. I like the image quality. Agree that we could brighten it a bit.
