Hi Deon
The colors and contrast is very nice, also especially the shade and reflection is so effective.
Best Regards,

Hello Deon,
Good pic of this coot, good capture on waves. Maybe dark on head zone, but I think is a good photo.

Very good image of a very difficult bird to photograph. White face and black neck and body fools the exposure meter of your camera. Nice.
