[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After taking many profile shots of this beautiful bird, I tried something different with this image. I did exposure compensation - 0.7 step to get the background dark (back ground was dark green water). The sunlight was falling on its beak, so it saved the black beak from the black background and made the water drops more prominant.
The shot was taken at Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Mysore, India.

Salut Neloy,

very nice image. the dark OOF background and the water drooping from the beak make this image kind of unique
