Very nice composition but you got beat on the noise and blur.

a symphony of noise and blur and flare!

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery.

Very intrigued by this pose. Quite dynamic. Can't help but notice the noise and some haloing (possibly sharpening artifacts) and think I'd prefer them gone, but really do love the composition and the bokeh. This is one where the overall image has much more of an impact on me than the technicals.

Interesting processing. The background has some texture that I'm not acustomed to seeing. This might be an Anhinga (anhinga anhinga). If this is not from North America it could be called something else. Good luck with the entry.

Wonderful. Great capture, wonderful backdrop of delicate branches, and beautiful bokeh. That's quite some beak.

very strange pp

this is a 9 from me. 1 pt docked only for what looks like global sharpening resulting in noise in bokeh background. spot sharpening would avoid that. wonderful capture. gl

A nice lively photo, but the significant noise issues could have readily been fixed in advanced editing.

nice shot but wish the foot wasn't cropped at the bottom.
