Excellent lovely shot nice colour. Will
Always help to get a cooperative bird. I am not sure you need the dark foreground. Is it adding anything to the photo? I am uploading a mod which crops a bit off the bottom.
Thanks Will and Catherine for your comments. This is the first picture I've put up for comment.
Catherine - cropping the bottom is an idea. I might try a trim but not going as far as you have.
I feel the dark area at the bottom counter-balances the block of sky and puts the bird in a stronger visual position.
I think that the black area at the base is ok, but i would actually crop the top half of the sky out.
Compositionaly this would bring the join of water and land, and the bird on to the thirds and make for a more pleasing composition. IMHO of course!!
Have uploaded a mod for you to ponder!
like the layers in this, for me the 2nd mod works best with a crop off the sky, i feel the first mod unsetles the balance. caught this as the e2 feature.lesley
Definately second modification .Caught your image on e2 feature also and was drawn to it.So despite us all
tampering with it - your image had something to draw us in , in the first place.
Bird well placed, railings good forground interest and set off by lovely sky.
I prefer the second mod to the first - but there's soemthing to be said for the freedom of the original, and the fading colours at the top of the frame...
Love the second mod , but yours takes some beating as I caught it on E2 feature & liked it a lot .
