First all of, 5 stars. It really deserves a spotlight Stuart. Your picture is full of extra qualities. Perfect shutter speed (water looking like warm milk). Perfect crop, the bird is exactly at the right place, in an interesting attitude (looking liek a statue). Colors are also ver appealing, his feathers echoing the tones and hints of the water. To sum up : this is really a very aesthetic photograph. I would have love to see it hanging on my wall.

@Florence: Thx so much, Flo.

You've used the background not just as background, but as an effective and interesting part of the photo.

This is some true great work.
This must be two pictures or something, well I try to understand, I try to find your secret ;)))
Ok anyway, in other words let's say this is a five or more stars for me!
