I've subscribed to Arthur Morris' Birds as Art bulletins for a while now and I've learned a lot. One of the things he stressed was to look at the overall picture - does it convey what you saw? Does it give motion to the bird. I've seen pictures of his that I would normally have rejected without reading his explanation of why he thought it was a good picture. I also would have rejected this picture before reading his wise words. This pic portrays exactly what was going on at the time. This swan was bathing in the late light and he really kicked up a lot of water. Because he's blurred due to movement, I would normally have turfed it. After the Arthur Morris bird lesson, I looked inside the picture, not at it. Yes, this picture is EXACTLY what was going on at the time. Thank you Arthur.
