Very nice Japie.
The composition is great and nice color.
The note is very good
Wow... gran captura Japie.
Excelente perspectiva y colorido, le dan una idea de estar en la cima de una alta montaña.
Existe apenas un desenfoque, pero el resultado final es excelente.
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.
Wow... great capture Japie.
Excellent colorful and perspective, gives an idea him to be in the top of a high mountain.
It exists as soon as a defocusing, but the final result is excellent.
I dared to make a workshop... I hope you like it.
I love the composition here, it is not often you see crashing water as a background for a bird photo. Exposure seems very good as well. My only thought is that this is just a little soft. Did you use a tripod to support such a long lens? Good shot.

A very nice capture.
Composition is excellent and the power of the waves makes a great background.
Very well done.

Nice capture, good details on the bird and excellent background. The bird looks as if he's wondering what on earth you were doing getting your feet wet there ;-))

This is a very nice composition Japie. I agree with Ricardo he looks like he is on top of a mountain. Bit soft on the focus but I like it. Thanx. Usual great detailed note.

Very nice one, Japie. Outstanding composition with the cormorant on the reddish rock, and a good use of DOF. Well done.

quit an effort to take this shot Japie, but I think i was worth while, great waves in the BG and the contrast wit the the trekduiker makes this picture sublime !!

A little like the view from a mountain top? Nice backdrop for your bird. I must say, it's not the most handsome one I've seen! Almost looks like one of our Texas Buzzards!!

What I like best about the shot is the angle that you achieved. Lovely composition, and great note. Well done.

'n Mooi Kaypie! The Bird is isolated from the BG, enhancing the subject, the environment is there but not obtrusive and there is space for the subject to breath. Position in the frame strong. The exposure on the blacks is a bit off, maybe half a stop under exposure would have given you more detail on the black breast.

Nice capture and pose, Japie. These birds are particularly common on the Cape West Coast.

A Wonderful bird you hunted,well done!and DOF perfectlly managed,what a nice background,I like it,very well composed as all of your shots(you creat a nice gallery,too,here).And well controlled the light ,too.
You did great,Japie!
Nice angle on the picture. The composition is great. It looks like the wave is on it's way to drench the bird.
The note is perfect

The Commarant has a look on his faces, like he is lost in thought looking.
