[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not perfect but I like the birds stance, looks like he is walking on the water

The bird was just too far away to get a really sharp image.

Hi Mark. Dont under sell your self this is a good picture. Once again you timing is spot on. You say its not sharp well i would have been glad to have taken it. And with natural colours. well done TFS.

Hi Mark,
Very good capture of a bird rarely seen here; great pose and composition, sharp details (it is sharp but close to cropping limit, obviously the distance is causing more or less blurring), and good natural BG.

hello Mark

excellent photography of this merganser open-closing his wings,
great timing to shoot it on photo, shot with fine POV, DOF and framing,
beautiful luminosity on it, with excellent sharpness and details, TFS


Hi Mark,
A very fine capture of the bird in a striking pose.The space on the left adds a good dimension.Well seen and presented.
I tried a WS for my own learning.Hope you wont mind:)
TFS & Cheers

The picture is good but could be much better approach.I tried a workshop.
