Shot from Spring 2013. I'm not a bird photographer, I prefer landscape. But this one turned out well, I thought. Thoughts?

Btw I'm new on FM, first forum experience. Joined yesterday (!). Thanks for looking.

I like it, it has plenty of environment and especially graceful wing positions.

Intriguing. There's a lot of texture going on here. Maybe a little more highlight detail in the bird would help, though.

Welcome to the Forum Wiz You will find here that many people are going to help you with what ever you ask .For my 2 cents I like the B/W choice on this What was your intention the marsh or the bird? I think that you should crop more off the bottom.It always helps when we can see your exif info also wiz With that being said have fun and keep posting

I'm just guessing: anywhere near Abbott's lagoon?

Hi all and thank you for the warm welcome, very much appreciated! Having fun and learning so far. Thanks for the comments.

Michael -The focus was on the bird but I was a little more distant than I would have liked. I wasn't expecting the opportunity nor looking for it, it just sort of presented itself. I'll try to revise the photo with exif showing. I used a Leica Monochrom-M with Leica Summicron 90mm f/2.0 lens. Unusual camera but it picks up increased tonality and detail, resulting from no color filter. Full res, you can pick out some of the individual feathers even though its distant appealingly snow white.

Dalite - yes this was Abbot's! Good eye ;-)
