great shot. I really like the patterns on the back of the shag. It shows the feathers off really well. Composition offset to the right is also excellent and sharpness adn DOF are also good.

Very nice sharp composition, great colours and background. Interesting details are the feather pattern and the green eye.

Ottima foto, Pam!
Il cormorano, molto nitido, si staglia benne dallo sfondo, ottima composizione, bravo!
Ciao e grazie.

Excellent shot on this post sitting Cormorant. Nice quality light and a spot on exposure has everything on the tech. side looking great. What makes this shot for me is the nice isolation and composition.
A classic shot done extremely well. Nice one!

I like this shot: the shag is well portayed against a background that is blurred but just right to show it in its right environment. Beautiful!
Ps. It is perhaps worth clarifying that your shot shows what might be called Black Shag in NZ (Phalacrocorax sulcirostris) or Little Black shag in Ozzie but is not the same species as the Great Cormorant (P. carbo) used by the Chinese for fishing.

Hello Pam, brilliant shot with excellent sharpness and detail on the plumage. I like your perfect composition on this, very good work as always. WELL DONE.

This is great, a perfect exposure IMO. The bright part of the background is controlled perfectly while retaining detail in the dark areas of the bird. Great detail and composition too. And a superb result for a hand-held shot at 1/30! Great work.
