I find these one of the most difficult subjects with the 2 oposite colours in the same bird complete black and ultra white, you realy do have to compromise on exposures. this is pretty good there is good details in the feathers and even the beak has too though not quiet as much. the evening light does this image the power of good adding the warm touch. TFS this great image.

Hoi Ruud, prachtige belichting. Wat een goede timing, de rode gloed en de weerspiegeling van het water is perfect. De vogel zelf is moeilijk om er echt mooi op te zetten. Maar in deze compositie is dat ondergeschikt.
Veel groetjes Reina

Very nice shot of the coot, the overall exposure is very nice, bringing out detail that's well defined, colors in the water really make the image stand out nicely. :)

Somehow you have managed to make one of the few bird I don't like look really good. The colours are wonderful.

The amazing colors are what caught my attention in this lovely image, but then I also see this wonderful coot scampering across the ice.
Nicely composed, with sharp details, rich colors, great pov, BG and pose.
Well done and thank you for sharing it with us!

Is this guy running away from the fox? Hehehehe...
Interesting background in the reflections in the water, and the low setting sun also gives a special hue to the colour of the bird...
Interesting moment of this capture, adding special effects to the fine result!

Wow! What a nice shot Ruud! The bird is wonderful and you show us nice details, but the autumn colours reflected are really the most amazing point here! Well done!
