Really well done. I like how the texture of the birds feathers harmonizes with the dappled surface of the water.

Wow! This really pops out at me. I love the contrast and sharpness of the bird. Excellently done!

i love the intense orange and the high contrast - you did an excellent job to avoid blowing out the feathers, yet allowing them to be fully white and bright

Amazing what Ma Nature comes up with for fancy dress.
Loe the definition of the bird's feathers and good
contrast with the water. As with Harvey's comment,
if there is more water to the right, give the critter
just a little more water too swim into if you can.

Of course I love birds so I'm immediately drawn to this image. Great EV. Not totally blowing the whites with lots of feather definition. The orange foot and orange beak balance the shot. All too often that foot is missing. This is natural selective desaturation :) Love the crown! Well focused. I'd opt for a bit more space to his right if it's there in the original.

Outstanding shot Abra. The vignetted background makes the bird really stand out, colours are great, you've got the whites exactly right. Excellent focus and lighting. Truly a goodie, Michele

Great shot with good bright colors and still have muted colors to help it stand out.

i enjoy the color version better. It really makes the bird pop from the water.
