Hello Roie,
Great capture of a Common Snipe, this fine POVand the reflection well worth getting muddy for! Excellent colours in the OOF BG and fine lighting to back up this sharp image.

Hello Roie,
Excellent photo of this Common Snipe. Sharpness and clear colours are marvelous in this gorgeous light. Great POV, DOF and composition. The blue, brown and red colors in the BG are splendid. Very nice reflection.

Hi Roie,
Welcome to TrekNature (I've missed your first posting)
It's a great capture of this common snipe. Color tones,background, light, exposure control, and composition are very good.
Looking forward to see more of your work here
Best wishes,


Your efforts to photograph this bird definitely paid off. I am surprised this excellent shot did not get more attention. You've captured this bird wonderfully, the focus is bang on, colors and background are outstanding, reflection is perfect - I'd call this picture every photographer's dream. This is truly a wonderful shot. Excellent work and welcome to TN!

Best Regards,
