I like the way you played with the depth of field here and the colours are demanding on the eye...It is a complex image but of good quality!

Although the detail on the birds is not strong this is still a good picture. I think it gives a real sense of the habitat they are in. The light and colours on the choppy water are particularly effective.

I like the sense of movement in this picture, Pekka. The Grebes are swimming half immersed in water and enjoying the activity.
The POV from the boat alongside the birds shows the one in the foreground with good clarity.
Well done and TFS.

You did well to capture this pair of Red-necked Grebes from a boat using a 1.4 teleconverter on a 300 zoom to get such a good result. The front one is sharp and well seen. The choppy water with blue sky reflection makes a striking BG.
TFS this one,
All the best,

a good shot of this Red-necked Grebe which shows it's habitat well.
Sharp and crisp.
The colours are a little on the blue side but that can easily be fixed. It might just be my laptop's screen though... I think it needs calibrating!
I hope you had a great Christmas!
