What a crisp image, Mario.
Everything looks really sharp, and the light is very good.
I like the simple composition very much.
Those plovers are so hard to catch standing still.
Congratulations on this beautiful image and TFS. : )

Excellent composition with the plover at water's edge and then silhoutted against the blue water. Lovey colours.
Nice detail, including the lil shells. Bravo, Jay

PS I like the "cleanness" of this shot, esp. for this type of photo.

Hi Mario,

Very well done. Color, exposure, and focus are right on. The composition is also well thought out. You left enough negative space on the right side so that the bird appears to be moving into the frame, and enough on the top to balance it.

TFS

Joel

Bonjour Mario,

Voici une très belle image d'un pluvier semi-palmé... Les couleurs sont très naturelles et j'aime beaucoup la composition que tu en as fait nous laissant voir son environnement... Le bleu de l'eau en bg découpe très bien l'oiseau... Et bien entendu, le petit éclair dans l'oeil donne tout son charme à la photo!

Belle réussite en TFS,

Michel

Good image, Mario.
Well composed...
Plover is portraited very well...
