Hey Jane! (smile)

Here's my run down on what I like to think of as, your "Earth Week"(Apr 17 - 24) image.

Composition: I like the way you used the water to fill the background which to my eye effectively becomes a canvas for the cormorant and the rest of the elements in the image.

COLOR: I like the warm tones which enhance the naturalness.

DETAIL: love the sharp, clear detail of all the elements in the scene.
