Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes well to the free study challenge

You know Ronnie, I really feel for you, once more you produce an excellent nature study which has an unjustifiably low score and worse still not even one comment! I could probably say more but I wont, anyway, I for one appreciate your efforts.

Over here the bittern is one of our shyest most difficult birds to even see let alone capture like this, we usually only get to hear their booming call. I can easily imagine how much time, patience and energy has gone into getting this result, your timing and technical approach is commendable. I can only assume that the softness of the bird has been misunderstood but I like the motion blur of his head together with the sharp dynamics of the prey and its droplets, for me it puts the emphasis on the poor prey. I like it Ronnie and look forward to more of your excellent images, well done.
