    So I am sitting here at home positive with COVID. I bad news is I cannot get out to shoot, the good news, is maybe I can get caught up on processing and my website. Here is another image from Bosque this year. Have lots to go through still.

    This is awesome, Kurt! Sharp as can be, a great pose, and a killer BG. I love how the golds/tans/browns work together. I think you could up the global exposure just a bit - might help that gold crack a bit more. I'd love to have this frame in collection.

    Very nice indeed Kurt! I agree with Dorian about raising the overall exposure just a touch, but man, this image has it all otherwise. Have fun with your down-time catching up, but take care as well!

    Well it's not all doom and gloom Kurt, super image and a dreamy background, super detail beautifully processed.

    Kurt, super sweet wings down man. Love the position in frame, the drama behind and nice and sharp.

    You could maybe bump exp a touch but a winner from me!

    this image has a lot of drama and color, love everything about it, if mine I'd just sharpen the duck about 15% more. everything else is perfect

    Beautiful image. I love the soft tones and the wings down flight pose.

    Are you dead? CNN says that everyone who gets COVID dies?

    Last I checked I’m still alive. CNN does tend to over exaggerate ��
