The first one is outstanding, IMO. First it's about the layers into which the bird is inserted - it really looks very much "composed" that way! Second, it's the color contrast - between white/yellow and (dark) green. The other three images are very good, no doubt - but #1 is in its own class!

Thanks for sharing these images, Mike!

Thanks much for the feedback Harald! I don't usually like my results in this sort of light at the lagoon, but I was pretty happy with these.

Best regards

Can't remember being fed in your garden Pieter
However, I had some nice food (and drinks) in a garden of other Dyxum members in Gothenburg recently. I found this one during a trip with them.
