Great warm evening light on the bird, and indeed throughout the image. I like the simplicity of your composition, and the way the angle of the bird's body and head cuts diagonally through the frame.
There seems to be a strange soft halo around the edges of the bird which doesn't look like the effects of shallow depth of field - I suspect it's more to do with sharpening technique than the original photo itself. It doesn't matter too much.
I like how the bright green eye stands out from the more muted hues in the rest of the image.
Good work Manyee.

The lighting in this photo is really magnificent. It gave the Cormorant such a wonderful warm glow. I love how the green eye stands out so well from the rest of the bird. I am not so sure about the blurring of this photo, it created some soft edges on the bird as well. I think I prefer a natural BG.

The strong colour in his eye really comes out well in the low angle of the sun here

Perfectly done shot of the nice cormorant. I like its great composition, lovely colours, effective cropping and excellent sharpness of the bird image. Colours and blurriness of the water is beautiful BG for this cute bird. My best wishes and TFS.
