    Jade, I knew about your vote. A ham like me always checks the votes. Thanks for your comment and your vote. I value your opinion even if you do have a prejudice against rear views. I have a shot of a dragonfly that you should see. Very posterior.

    Sorry a little late with the comments, but this was my top pick as well. I think it is an extraordinary fine image. You should be proud of your abilities on display here.

    Lovely shot. I love the reflected view of his undercarriage. Highly placed.

    Great shot. Beautiful colors, great exposure and very sharp. Nice reflection.

    Well done, this graceful image stands out, its nice to see one that isn't white. The composition and lighting with the light background go well together. It being off center hits me as such but am not sure what to do about it. high in TT.

    Beautiful, gives me a sense of peace. My only wish were maybe some more water under the reflection. Great pic anyway.

    Interesting perspective. Wonderful reflections. I might have cropped a bit off the right hand side as well as the top. In my TT's.

    Simple but effective composition, lots of detail in the bird.

    great light and sharpness, and an interesting pose - i like it a lot.
good contrast in colour

    Well-shot, with great detail, though the pose is a bit awkward. Cropping some from right and bottom would improve composition, IMO.

    Perfect except for the reflection which is missing the top of the subject.

    Beautiful bird. Sharp and well-exposed showing detail in both highlight and shadow areas. Only the subject's position in the frame doesn't feel quite right to me. My eye follows the direction the bird is peering, which is down and left and then out of frame. With the bird in the center of the frame and equal water areas on right and left, instead of going out of frame, my eye would jump from the tip of the beak to the tail feathers and follow the line up the back and around to the neck and head again, keeping my eye on the bird and exploring the details within. Just my thoughts.

    Like the position of the bird"s neck and head. Frontal or side of the head would be just another bird shot, ho hum.
