First of all I am impressed with precise exposure. It is difficult to achieve correct exposure of the beak and forehead against the dark colouration of the feathers. You have done this perfectly. I also like wonderful reproduction of the water surface. Its amazing and great as a BG. Framing of this mode is creative and nice/ Well done, my friend and TFS.
you did very well with the exposure, the Coot is not easy
to right, with the black plumage and the bright beak, all details are well seen, very nice.
The POV is low and nice but I'm not sure about the composition,
I want to see more of the bird, maybe in landscape format.
Nevertheless it's a good picture.
Well done, mf.
Have a nice WE.

Hi Peter. Common it maybe but you have taken a first class close up showing every little detail in the wet feathers. The red eye and white bill stand out so well. All with natural colours and interesting notes. well taken TFS,
Have a nice Sunday.
Heel mooi daar in Nieuwkoop met al dat water. Ben er deze zomer geweest. Vond dat de watervogels er precies niet zo schuw zijn bvb de reigers. Moet mooi wonen in een huis omringd door water. Vroeg me wel in hoeverre jullie last hebben als 't bijvoorbeeld overvloedig regent.
Behoorlijk moeilijk om deze coots te benaderen in normale omstandigheden. Blijkbaar zijn ze mensen gewoon.

Buen enfoque al motivo y acertado encuadre con esos cortes tan origionales a medio cuerpo del ave, una técnica poco vista.
Un abrazo y buen Domingo Peter: J. Ignasi.

zo dit is nog eens een haarzuiver portret van deze moeilijke te fotograferende vogel, niet om voor de lens te krijgen maar qua kleurstelling.
Erg goede detailering en prachtige warme kleuren.

A fine close portrait of a Eurasian Coot taken from a good POV to show the head and neck with superb sharpness, colours, lighting and excellent eye contact against a nice diffuse water BG. It is amazing how red the eye is when seen close to.
Thanks and have a good week,

Nice picture of the coot. Good details and well exposed.
As a suggestion: Perhaps a lower angle would had made it even better.
