Hello Yancy

You did well with this image. Your take on this subject works well with this egret or crane. This image says a lot. Maybe how life can be black and white sometimes.......life and survival as shown here with the slihouette of the bird maybe looking for it's next meal. Well done. B/W iamges can be tricky, but real rewarding in the end. Nice


I love this minimalist image. Black and white makes it look even more stark. I might have cropped a little more off the bottom though... it seems to me maybe just a little too much water at the bottom... just my opinion though.
Good work Yancy

Hi Yancy,
a very interesting and creative image. I think I would compose this with the bird in the lower half of the image. Still a great photo.

This is the type of composition that is difficult to achieve, once we always have something creeping into the frame to distract the intent of the image.
In this case, even with the little distraction on the top left corner, the whole picture is sort of balanced.
B&W worked well here, but I think the color version will be great to have as WS.
