nice shot of this Shag.
+++ Once again the sea BG is fantastic!
Great composition and the eye-level POV works really well.
Nice lighting and colours.
--- Focus is slightly soft so I did a workshop to clean that up... I hope you don't mind!
Great shot nevertheless.
Well done mate,

Very nice capture from this Spotted Shag. Beautiful colours. Specially around the beak. The white line on his body gives a good indication of how big the bird is. The picture is sharp and gives a lot of fine details on the feathers. Your POV and BG are good. Interesting notes. Regards and TFS BOB
Just marking this wonderful post from you and will come back with a proper critique in a while.
* Posting a workshop, hope you don't mind. Please let me know your comments.

Great looking cormorant, very attractive.
Well captured with a fine composition.
Like the say the focus is a bit soft around the head, but not too bad. An impressive addition to your gallery.

Your crop has filled the frame, well done not to loose detail and image quality as some crops do and he really stands out beautifully against the sea in the BG. In this I would agree that it is better left slightly soft than trying to sharpen any more.
Nice light to show up all his colour and detail.
