Great composition. I love the reflection and symetry. The water it's standing in is a perfect frame filler... nothing distracting and nothing pulling attention away from the flamingo. It has an "art" feel to it, and would make a great print.

Underrated.. I cant stand it when people mark down a shot that they know they couldnt have taken nearly as good themselves.. I see nothing wrong with this picture as it belongs the way it is! Fantastic!

Mmm .. colours are terrific. That low light and the water detail really give depth that makes this start to work. If you had enough in the frame, I'd like to have seen the subject bought onto the thirds interasection as I think it would have scored even higher, some of the impact is lost and its too good for that.

the lighting is perfect

WOW! is all I've really got to say about this one. Looks like something straight from one of my National Geographic books. Amazing colours and mood you have captured. The texture on the water really adds something special to this one. 10

Beautiful composition, but it seems that the focus is not as sharp as it could be.

I like the editing on this very much :)

This is nice, as I like the feeling of space and also the reflection.....
01/28/2006 03:40:56 AM
Nice reflection, well done all around.
01/28/2006 12:16:01 AM
Nice composition. Lacking a bit of detail where the highlights are blown.
01/27/2006 02:20:02 AM
good composition...color needs work
01/26/2006 11:27:12 PM
Isn't that amazing! She looks like she is very impressed with her reflection in the water. And I am very impressed with the photo!

great composition and background...lacks a bit of focus imho, grainy but well done

Some of the left side of photo should be cropped out
01/25/2006 02:03:06 PM
Really nice...the shot loses some power from the stark contrast between the water and the bird because of the halo surrounding it. Without that problem the shot would've been much better. Great idea though with the reflection in the dark water.

Super shot. Interesting placement in the frame.

Really unusual composition and works really well for me. The colour seems very saturated and the image overall seems a touch soft but I like it a lot overall.
01/25/2006 07:00:43 AM
breat composition...lighting...and choice of subject...my only crit is that the flamingo is a bit on the soft side
01/25/2006 05:56:15 AM
Cool! The subject details could be slightly brighter...but I guess it was a really difficult shot
01/25/2006 01:03:04 AM
This is a good picture, but the amount of water and whatever is on it is really distracting.

I like the texture in the water, and the distortions in the reflection.
