Thanks for looking.

While we can always make pinhead arguments about processing, that is SWEET composition and exposure! :thumbsup:

Erm, any chance of providing this as a download for wallpaper?

It's very good. The only small criticism come in the processing. Looking at the original, there's some sharpening halos on the edge of the bird. You can turn back the sharpening or localise it using sharpening mask in RAW to fix this.. Also, I could be wrong but it seems just a little underexposed to me.

Excellent photo though. Really, really nice.

The mood of this piece is what is especially nice, IMO. I really like the way you were able to isolate the graceful bird and reflection.

Just beautiful. I think the exposure is perfect, anymore and it wouldn't be as surrealistic. Just an artistic choice.
