Hi everyone,

This shot is one from my recent "Frying Pan" thread.

I didn't really care for it that much at first but a couple of weeks later and a different PP and now I do !!

Could you please tell me if you like it or not (honestly) and why ??

Thanks,

Matt.

It's unique Matt, I love the light on the side, and the dark BG. It's the kind of image that makes you look at it over and over. Mysterious is all I can think of. Well done, glad you posted it.

I like it a lot, Matt. Why? Because I find it a very dramatic image. Almost mysterious. Good job, buddy.

Ahhh .... that's two 'mysterious' votes. Thanks Harv. This image gets to 'live'.

Matt, I really like it. It's ghostly... mysterious is a good word. The image forces you to concentrate on the bird and the lighting. Well done.

I like it as is. If I could see a tiny bit of water ripple around the feet and extending to the right of the frame and a slight tad of detail on the shade side of the bird it would be perfect for me.
