Excellent shot

I love the bird, but the dodge on the left side would work if the whole image were lighter...super details and reflex......

Good details and great light effect, but I am afraid I do not like the left side and I think you have positioned the "reflection" too close to the bird - the legs looks very confusing. As a whole it all looks too artificial to count as "wildlife" for me. Also watch the sharpening halo around the white edges of the bird

Many thanks Tim, this was a real reflection as it came from the camera, I was surprised myself.
I'll take care of the halo.

Now I looked often at this photo and I love the light in this capture very much!
But I miss the circles on the water surface at the mirrored bird. This makes the photo for me a bit unnatural. Maybe I'm wrong.

Very nice
I like # 5 & # 7 comments

#8 Reda Danaf: Then I congratulate you on a shot that shows the laws of physics apparently being broken. I don't think there has ever been a photo where the water ripples do not centre on the source of disturbance and a reflection has the power to stop water movement. Well done!

Many thanks Elisabeth.Please refer to my reply to Tim White. I must admit it is a bit confusing,
perhaps it was my lucky day

Thanks a lot Tim, some time physics break its laws :)

Reda I believe this image was played with too much to be in wildlife....especially the sharp lines and missing is ok to do this but please don't try to pass this off as are insulting our intelligence...
I don't want to insult you but this is not right
19 Reidar   (1/18/2014 4:20:08 AM)
Nice picture, but it is not right. Agere with Joe and Tim.
20 Hania (Anna Franek)   (1/18/2014 4:29:02 AM)
Reda, after re-taking a look at the picture I agree with others - the reflection looks unnaturally.

Many thanks my friends for your comments, and I reassure you all, that I haven't done any PS work apart from adjusting levels and, sharpening, and de noise..I wish I could send the RAW file to prove my point, but what I can do is I will post another shot of the same bird at the same location taken seconds before this one to prove my point.
