Nice bit of processing there Pete, not sure the square crop does it for me though as there is a lot of negative space for the Puffin to contend with.

Thanks Ryan - yeah, I dithered in and out of a square crop for a bit, but decided to go for it. You may be right, though I'm quite happy with plenty of negative space...

Beautiful work Pete. I'm not sure about the crop but I do like the processing.

Maybe fill the frame a tad more and still retain the neg-space - just my thoughts, but well thought out and great execution of your editing skills.

Cheers Greg - that would fit in with comments from above as well.

I would prefer it with a much tighter crop but like the idea for sure
