    Malcolm,

    Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on a beautiful image. The light is truly golden... I like how you maintained the white pelican feathers. It contrasts handsomely against the golden reflections. That looks like a stunning location for a river holiday. I'm envious!

    Thanks Paul, it was a great holiday, although the river was at very low levels. Mal

    I agree with what's already been said.

    Normally, with one like this, you'd maybe ask if a crop to make the subject (the bird) bigger would be in order. But that's not feasible or, I think, desirable, in this case. The background is as much the subject as the bird. And I can't see a crop that would keep that trail of water behind the bird (which has to stay) and still allow enough in front to have the bird 'going into' the frame
