Hello Pierre
Wonderful capture of this great crested grebe. Excellent details and natural colors well done

This image "grows on one," Pierre. In other words, the longer I look at it, the more I like it. Your composition draws the eye as we watch the grebe swim into the frame. It seems a tad soft on the left side, perhaps because of the motion, but overall sharpness is very good. I also really like the reflection. The foggy morning only serves to emphasize our attention on the grebe itself.


Cher Pierre

Tu nous présentes une très belle image, toute simple dans sa composition et rès agréable à voir. Le spectateur obtient une bonne impression des caractéristiques de l'oiseau et la réflection dans l'eau est superbe.
