Love the letterbox crop- accentuates the movement in the water so well Sylvia - excellent capture and presentation.

I was just in the process of telling you I have just bought the mk 1 version of this lens last night and the image disappeared, I hope I can get images near as good as this one with it, this is 1st class. - gary

You'll never ever regret buying this lens, Gary - I look forward to seeing the results Smile Sorry about the image disappearing last night - took it down as I wasn't happy with the presentation so re-worked it this morning.

Like how you have the water looking so soft and 'gentle' here Sylvia, and know the Otter was moving like lightning...what a great shot and congrats on the UA, also the presentation so different really stands out.

Sorry to take so long to get round to this beautiful capture Sylvia. Been a bit busy of late. Wonderful capture of the Otter. I love the superb and gentle swirls in the water and the delicate colouring.
First rate.

A real class act Sylvia, the reflection is the icing on the cake. This one deserves far more attention IMHO
