    Default Caged Comorant

    Hi guys,

    Here a tight presentation of a comorant. As the subject was actually caged, there wasn't much option for a clean background, hence the tight crop.



    Does it work?

    Critique, feedback or comments on the composition will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Very nice, not often you can get a shot of that moment, plus I like the effects of the feathers showing symetrical shapes flowing down.
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...

    more of the eye and also maybe something to connect the head to the feathers, that they are one ... a question of timing or angle perhaps ...

    Thanks! Actually there is catchlight, but it's very close to the eyelit. Not too obvious I guess.

    Cheers,

    hmm. I can try, but to show more eye, that would mean and even tighter crop and that will make any connection (via neck) very difficult. As you suggested, perhaps a different angle may help.

    Thanks!

    Cheers,

    Thanks!

    Actually, I think the bird was irritated by the hoards of screaming children banging on the glass and fence. So it was more a moment of escapism than serenity. But was glad with the final effect of the crop.

    Cheers,

    Thanks choy for verifying. Perhaps those with different calibrating devices sees it differently. But I think I still have some color management problem. Will see if I can change a system to solve it.

    Thought you are using Colorvision's Spyder? Comments were from those using eye one or those without calibrated monitors.
