I kinda like the Cormorants’ interaction here… Thoughts?

Three birds works well, Bruce, especially as the third one is looking in their direction. The water seems a bit “stratified” Hmm?

Thanks Mistyisle! Yeah, the wind picked up a bit and was creating some ripples in the water… I’m going back tomorrow, and I hope there isn’t any wind.

I agree that the three birds work well. I can’t see what Bruce could have done about the water. Change position to get it level and expect the cormorants to stand still? Use a strong filter to freeze the water – and expect the birds (the real subject) to stand still? I like the water, its colour and the reflections. I think it’s a lovely photo.

I like it but I think I would prefer with just the two on the left… As is does not suck though.

I like it. The semi-silhouette of the birds and colors in the water. With these candid kinds of shots you get what you get. You really can’t do much for “staging”. There must be something that drew you to take it in the first place. In the case, the birds reactions. 😉

it looks like that’s their version of the water cooler. they’re just standing around gossiping. very cool shot, i love the grouping of the birds. the bright yellow reflection in the water adds a lot of energy to the photo.

Thanks Beth! Talk about hanging around the water cooler; you might enjoy this one… I jokingly call it ‘The Three Amigos.’
It’s an amazing location I found. It’s a late afternoon sun on the left side of the frame the left, so it lights the foreground. The yellow is a reflection of a tree with yellow leaves brightly backlit by the sun, so it’s really bright, and makes a great reflection. I’ve been there several times, and will go again. 🙂
