Fabulous and you put guys like Audubon out of work. So how did you get rid of the sky and water? Surely the water was dark and the sky was light?

Over exposure alone shouldn’t do this!

Brilliant on white! I love it!

If you wanted to, could you bring back the water?

Why did it come out as white? Was the sky that bright overhead?

No rule, Bob! Just my own taste with intense pictures!

These birds are seen exceptionally well, but beyond being perfectly exposed, the perception is in line with our normal visual experience.

I appreciate your choice in you using white as it allows the fine details around wildlife to be so defined.

What sharp mirror images. Do you know which sandpiper? Reminds me of a breeding Stilt though maybe too chunky for that.
