Greetings from the Critique Club!

Love these loons, they can be so difficult to shoot without getting too much washout or too many dead black areas on them. You want to give the voters as much reason as possible to see your image at its best. The main problem with this image is the size, it's so small on the short side that it's at a huge disadvantage as other are entering their images at the maximum allowed size. Not sure if the vignetting is intentional but some love it, others not so much.

Find this image to be a bit underexposed - may have been a better idea to sacrifice the shutter speed for one a little slower, and/or the aperture a bit wider, to allow in more light for what looks like a slightly backlit subject.

Otherwise a very good attempt, please keep submitting entries!

Very nice. The wide perspective goes so well with the subject.
