Adding another take on this scene ... I think I prefer this one over the first given all of the reflection from the bird on the left is in the frame. The first one was selected for GE ... let's see what happens here ...

This is really stunning...I love the composition of the birds, and the background is incredible! Bravo! (Plus, I just love cormorants...they are endlessly entertaining!) Cheers, pear

The colors reflected in the water really make this a standout! Just an absolutely beautiful image. Like #1 from me.

Nice! Absolutely love it, Kevin! I am always shocked at how you can perfectly expose photos! I hardly ever see overexposure in your gallery!

Lovely background here, and perfect posture of the birds. I still have to get my first decent shot of these, they're very shy around here.

Okay, I won't use any superlatives. But I will imply all of them! Very nice, subdued colors.

Love the shimmering light in the background! Put that with the plain branches and the spread wings of the birds and it has a very artistic and somewhat Oriental feel to it. Like!
