Hi Russell
Great timing! :)
Love the background contrast against the dark bird and the fact it is very monochromatic aside from the orange and pink bits. Cool!


Hi Russell.
Perfect lighting caught as he turned his head slightly, lovely sharpness, detail and colours.
The use of the seaweed curled in the sand in front of him adds an interest to the sandy beach as it has caught a rim of light and a bit of surf to make a nice pattern.
Great image,
Just said to Elizabeth, I get the feeling everyone is going to know what we got up to on Labour Day with all three across the page, great afternoon.


Gidday Russell,
