Hi Andrea

Great shot with this cormorant "cutting" through the water.
I like the colors and effects on the water very much. The lines that he leaves behind are great next to the very calm water elsewhere.
Lovely POV, excellent sharpness and framing complete this outstanding composition.

Bravo and TFS

Delightful image, Andrea!
I love the way the bird leaves a beautiful formation on water while it swims forward.
Super composition with great POV, focus, colours and clarity.
TFS.
