    Beautiful Rob. And I can see through the hole in his nose.
    The voices in my head may not be real, but they come up with some great ideas..

    Cheers Rev.

    A beautifully crafted composition, Rob. The only thing that might have lifted it was a catchlight in the eye to bring it out of the black facial feathers.

    Love the composition on this one particularly and the way the weather has been lately, I really love your technique. Those eyes do tend to dissapear into the black feathers but you have pulled them out just enough I think.

    Sweet setting. Love how the water is bubbling over the rock and over the feet.
    I might be tempted to bump the exposure by 1/3 just to brighten up the whites a little. May not be true to the scene. I tend to go a bit brighter than what I was presented with.

    Lovely Rob. Chris' suggestion may also assist the black eye to be a bit more present. However, I also love the mood this image sets; gloomy day, lonely, contemplative bird, dark potential in the water. Nicely done, Wilson

    I'm really liking your "gray" series from Kirk Point, Rob, the dull tones really suit the waders photographed.
