  2. I really like this, the reflection you caught. I am torn between wanting more distance in front of the bird, but wouldn't want to lose too much of the "wake" from the stick behind it. Nice to have such a cool shot where you can be picky about things like that. I'd sure be happy with it were it mine.
     
  3. Now that is a shot, very well done Brian. Beautiful job.

    Great capture - of the bird and reflection. Stick and wake in water from stick add a lot more.

    Was thinking the same, perfect moment in time for all three, bird / reflection / stick creating the wake.

  9. Wow - that is one of those once in a lifetime shots.
     
  10. a special shot no doubt, AWESOME!!
     
  11. Thanks everyone. I didn't even know I captured the stick slicing thru the water until I downloaded the pics and saw it on the monitor.
     
  12. Gorgeous! Congratulations!
     
  13. What everyone has said..a wonderful and timely image that everyone wishes they could have taken. Great feather detail, exposure, and the wake of the stick really adds to the "wow" factor. Would have liked a bit more realestate at the top but that's just me being picky....and envious
     
  14. Wow, that is a shot! Great shooting, thanks for sharing it.

    Cheers,
