Critique Club Review:

Color, Saturation, and Hue: Colors are beautiful, very realstic. Nothing looks over saturated or over processed.

Brightness and Contrast: Both are excellent. Highlights are not blown out, contrast is appropriate for this image, shadows hold details very well. Over all lighting is very good. Nice work...

Focus and depth of field: Focus is excellent. Extremely sharp, as it should be in this case. Depth of field works well.

I might have liked a little tighter crop to get a better look at the birds. I like the separation of the one, from the other two. I might have like the two on the right a bit closer, but then this isn't like posing people. Perhaps one bird facing the camera would have been a bit better also, but then again, it isn't like they take direction.

Beautiful birds, and I really enjoyed this photograph. Congratulations on a well deserved top ten finish. You were up against some really good stuff. In another challenge, you might well have taken home a ribbon.


Grateful for your evaluation and kind encouragement. Wildlife is challenging and DPC has provided an opportunity to learn. Not only that but to appreciate and enjoy the incredible talent and creativity displayed by many. Some are truly gifted. Thanks again.

This was my fav shot in the challenge and my only 10. I loved the colour and the reflections and the fact all the birds were doing something different. I also really like the water through the whole background with nothing else to disturb it


Wow a 10?! I am truly honored and appreciate so much the PH ribbon. The public forum was a big step for me - still learning how to navigate. The grace and kindness of DPC folks is inspiring. You have made my week!

Okay, well technically this is three points of color- joking. I have a real soft spot for the mirror like water reflection shots. Too often you find the perfect reflection and the water won't cooperate, or you find the perfect flat water and nothing to shoot. Well done. Congrats on your top ten.

VERY cool! This goes beyond the classic elegant portrait of a bird and creates a really interesting dynamic between the three birds. The refections and bright blue color of the water create an great environment! Beautiful
