talking about difficult light and burning whites this picture was a nightmare
black and white babies, dark, almost black water and full sunshine in late afternoon, I had to use a -2 IL correction to keep structure in the white elements

Hello Tom,
Bright sunshine on white elements is always a problem. But in this case you managed it well. Nice cute family. Taken from a nice low POV in fine sharpness and a good choice of composition.

Thanks for sharing,
