    Great color and love the view from above, just enough detail in the water to know that it is water

    John, nice cloudy light shot. Lots of depth in focus for f5.6.

    Bird is nicely processed. I could see a version with the subject a bit more in frame too.

    TFS.

    Nice Framing of the Subject. No changes from me.

    Lovely flat light view. Frame has a nice mood. Bird really cracks on the water, and we get some serious detail in the wings. You did as well as you could with SS of 1/1600. If you boosted yellow bill I might back off a bit. If not, you got a really good looking example!

    John,

    This is one of your best ever. The top shot pose is superb. A bit more room behind the bird would not hurt. Could you please post a JPEG showing the full frame original?
