An outstanding shot on this Cormorant. The light quality is nice and soft. Beautiful colors and sharp detail in the plumage. Well controled DOF has a nice OOF backround.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Bro James,
What a lovely pose of this beautiful cormorant you captured.
Amazing shot in all around. i also liked her bluish eyes so much.
Have a nice night!

This is, indeed, a very different Cormorant, James.
The bird looks very elegant in that relaxed posture atop a black rock that makes a fine contrast with its white front.
It is difficult to believe you took such a sharp and crisp image from a boat.
Thanks and hope you are keeping well.

A very good shot taken from a boat, the shutter speed sufficient to achieve excellent sharpness and the DOF is just right. This makes a fine portrait of the Imperial Cormorant taken from a frontal POV but I might have left more space on the left as it is looking that direction, but that is a minor point.
Thanks and all the best,

Great photo of this Cormorant. The light and colours are very beautiful. Not overexposed in the white. Excellent sharpness and details, frontal POV, OOF BG, DOF and composition.

I see you've been pretty busy around here while i was away :) Some really great shots from you (as always) but this one really stood out in my eyes.
The natural contrast here between the bird and the BG is terrific and it makes the subject stand out so well, even from the thumbnail. Further more, the pose in which you captured it is lovely as well as delicate (at least that what's it looks to me) - with that one leg in front :)
The shallow DOF works again superbly while the exposure (although loosing a bit from the highlights) retains that great color in its eyes...what a treat!
That for posting this photo of this new species, too - a pleasure to read about it as well.
Bravo and TFS

This Cormorant is a beauty with its white belly and blue eyes! And how elegant its pose! It must be a female..
Excellent bird-picture, well composed and with fine colors.
Very well done.
Have a nice evening
