[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm not a bird expert, but I think this is some variety of Sandpiper. He didn't want his picture taken and it was kind of funny the way he darted around to avoid me. It reminded me of the golden oldie
Pied Piper. I liked the reflections in this particular shot, so I thought I'd share it with my friends here on TL. The sun was going down, hence the high ISO setting.

PP work: + Contrast, + Saturation, Crop, Resize and Sharpen.

Have a great day everybody!

Hi Werner

The lone bird makes a crucial focal point in this minimalist shot with superb pastel colours & good sharpness. I like the reflected clouds & the rose tints from the impending sunset. Tfs!

Hi Werner,
Man, this shot makes me miss the beach. I like the reflections of the bird and clouds in the surf. The natural lines in the tide are nice as well. Maybe a little too much negaitive space and a tighter crop would work better...maybe. Still a nice picture.

Hi Werner...this is a nice peaceful shot....well composed with nice details.
