Nice series of water birds, Very good exposures, my only suggestion is to maybe leave a little more room on the side that the birds are looking, But still a lovely set.

Hello there and welcome. Real nice series. It might be me but they all show the whites a tad blown. I cant see any exif info. They all look well focused and clear. Other than that well done.

Thank you. I think my whites may be a little blown. I now know what I did wrong and will go back and reshoot to try to improve on my work
