A very sharp close-up of the head and beak of this Gannet.
Very nice pastel colors and accurate details in the plumage.
Nice composition and excellent light.
Nicely framed and neatly presented.

Oh Jannie! This has got to be one of your best ever! Nice details, wonderful close crop! I love the softness of the feathers, just amazing work!

Amazingly intimate, close shot - great detail and the flow of composition - head, beak, light and shadow - is exquisite.
You must've been close to catch this!

This is wonderful, the fine details in her feathers are superb. The colors are amazing as well, especially her blue eye makeup ;) The POV and crop are excellent as well.

This is you at your best, photographing the birds.
The lines, the composition, the unbelievable personal closeness make it an exciting experience.
I feel a little like a bird hypnotist ... look into my eyes!!
I can imagine the pleasure you felt on capturing this!
I just love it!
It will have to go into my favourites!
Have a good w/e,
Beautiful shot with an awesome DOF and sharpness. I would like to see notes on PP and tripod.

Very good composition. The detail in the crest and eyes is superb but would have liked to see more sharpness at the tip of the beak. My eyes are drawn towards the tip of the beak because of the blur. But otherwise, nice job.

Lovely photo Janice, wonderful details in her plumage and the shadow from her beak is exquisite.

Like the tight crop of this gannets head, the colours, shadows and details are all very nice.
The end of the beak could have been a touch sharper as there was enough light for you to stop down even further but I guess you did not have enough time to change your settings.

very eye catching portrait.
nice for use tight crop,it give this portrait strong as well as its beak give interesting composition from diagonal lines.

This is a perfect close up of the gannet's head! Perfect sharp showing all the little feathers. No wash out of the bright areas, excellent camera control. Great post my dear!

Magnifique photo très bien cadré.
L'oiseau est très beau et semble songeur. On dirait que les lignes de son bec sont fait au pinceau.

This is good Janice , very good indeed . You did quite well under the circumstances , rails and other flying birds in the way , clear and sharp as a tack and of course the tight crop is ideal here , a lovely capture ! Thanks for sharing and for the short but informative note as well ,
Hi Janice - Lovely sharp details, especially of the feathers. I find it auite amazing that it's a handheld shot, given the weight of camera and lens. I love to just look at this peaceful image, the soft goldenbrown head, the bright blue eye rims and the aspect from above. Well done indeed. TFS and have a good week! Cordelia

Hummmm, Sorry I have to scroll back at many galleries to catch up missed works, and find favorites.
Here is a great one. Of course , I like gannets too, this helps a lot . But you nailed this one in a very elegant way. The textures and the whites are really well captured .
