    I like the water and the Sanderling but would love to see the bird higher in the frame.

    Joe bird looks good and I would have liked the bird higher in the frame too. But I do like all that sky above. Those blues in the background are great, cant really tell where the sky and water meet but it is fantastic. Background looks like a painting. TFS

    I like the behavior in this image. Also wish the bird was higher in frame. There seems to be some posterization in the BG.

    Hi Joe, always good to capture a behavioural shot, so this feeding pose works well. I like the colours and feather detail.

    I almost always prefer some action from birds to liven the frame up a little, so I like the foraging aspect. Agree with others that cropping him away from the edge of the frame wold be nicer
