Wakodahatchee Wetlands where I get to capture many a bird sightings. Love this place

This was shot with HDR processing; love how it gives the clouds a special dimension, unseen to the eye but revealed with layered light

Hello Brenda,
My problem with this scene is lack of adjectives. Beautiful ... marvellous ... fantastic... I love it. Pity, I might say, about the structure on the right. Better, perhaps, crop it off or clone it out. But the rest is perfect. What a beautiful image. Best wishes.

Hallo Brenda
I like the moodiness you captured in the clouds, I like the reflection in the water, I like the trees filled with birds, yes I like the scene, but as Neels suggested I would also have cropped out the structure. I also agree with Neels "What a beautiful image". Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Brenda,
You have chosen the right title for this shot..
Love the moody atmosphere you caught in this picture. Lovely clouds and their reflections on the watersurface. Even if you have chosen a half/half composition, it works here.
Kind regards
