I was one of your 7s. Sorry I neglected to comment earlier but I LOVE that reflection. Great details too.

Greetings, Janine, from the Critique Club!

I have NO idea why the score on this image is so low.

I like many things about it and don't like a few things about it, but... a 5.6? I don't understand that. *sigh*

The "bad stuff" first:

I'm not fond of the large clump of grass. I think it competes far too much with the subject. The rest of the foreground and background are so wonderfully blurred... EXCEPT for that grass clump. *sigh again*

I think you could have blurred it in post processing and been fully legal and fully amazing. :D It seems to me that everything is OOF in a glorious way except for the bird and the clump.

But, enough about the clump.

The colors are a tad bit drab. Maybe a pump up of them just a smidgen?

The good stuff:

Oh golly! The focus! Perfect!

The reflection... wonderful!

The crop... fabulous to show the scene and give us more of a feeling of where we are with the bird... but not too much area. Just enough.

Well done, Janine! Thanks for sharing this with us!
