[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know this photo is a bit dark, but I really like the relections in the water where the bird was swimming. I took the photo at a golf course in Myrtle Beach while my husband and brother were playing golf!

Hi Donna, this is a cormorant, but I can't tell you which one it is. The shot is great, though a little dark, as you noted. You have positioned the bird very well in this scene, giving him room to swim. You have good detail captured with the ripples and reflections of the bird and sky. I've raised a workshop to see what we could do to lighten it up a bit.

Thanks, John

Hello Donna,
Attractive ripples to frame the little fellow, almost an abstract impression created by nature!
Rich colours, pleasant composition!

Hi Donna,
this could be a little lighter, but what I love about this one is the wonderful textures and reflection on the water. Looks like some one took a large brush and did a wonderful abstract. The cormorant brings the natur aspect into the art.
