Shooting dragons yesterday when a grebe surfaced right in front of me. They always seem to keep a good distance from people so this is as close as I have gotten to date and it was in the shade so it had some nice light on it for the middle of the afternoon.

Really nice composition. I’d lighten the shadows on the bird. Just lovely.

Great shot Ryan, the water colour is a gorgeous colour contrast. I have never been able to get that close to a Grebe either.

Very good
Wow, thanks all! I wasn't expecting this kind of response so I'm glad you all like it! :)

@Mike Singh I might have my monitor a bit brighter than yours as I can see the details in the shadows although only barely. I will have a play and see how it looks on the laptop for a comparison.:)

Super shot Ryan, but do agree with Mike's edit - subtle change, but helps a lot.
