A imagem do cormorão é aparada de forma extrema, parece avançar para os olhos, gerando um poderoso efeito de profundidade, quase tridimensional. Bom trabalho !!!

Your Cormorant sits tall and proud as if it is king of the mountain. Sharply focused showing us its unique features and plumage in fine fashion. It sure has its eyes fixed on something interesting just out of the cameras view. Great eye contact and I like the blurred BG isolating the bird in an attractive manner.
I haven't captured this species :-(
You are lucky. Beautiful picture if I look at its exposure as well as its pose.
I don't like horizontal frame here. This picture could have been more eye catching if you could framed it vertically and in such way you could get rid of BLANK SPACE (hind portion).
Thanks for showing,
