Peter, I like the image very much! The title is good as well with the lone bird in the water looking up at his mates.

I had a bit of a play in ACR and found there was a lot more detail to be found, around the bottom of the rocks and on the birds as well, by lifting Shadows. There’s some lovely greens and yellows there. Reducing Highlights on the top of the rocks seemed to make the image a bit softer on the eyes.

I saw the time of day the image was taken. You’ve done very well!

Hi Glennie
Thank you for the comment. I had another look at the shot and following your advice, this is what I came up with.

Peter, I think this is better. I hope you think it is?

The scene was such a wonderful find.
