This is one of the best of many, many pics taken one day. I got a couple in flight, butcouldn't quite keep my focus on them.I need ALOT of practise!Is there anything I can do with this one to make it stand out more? It seems so......dreary. The day was gray and cold. Other than the lack of color, how does it look?

Thanks in advance, Kath

Crop this into a longer thinner aspect. Take off the top and the bottom might help the composition and interest. Or straighten up the shot. Maybe sharpen up a bit.

I think you have done well here. Nice shot. With some small prensentation skills, this will turn out very good.

I agree with LBoy, I think it is a good picture that could be given more oomph with the advice and suggestions given.

I agree with all of these - nice shot and a landscape-type crop would show it well. Not easy to photograph, are they?!

hi Kath for a first time shot i think it is very good, cropping the bank out of the background would help. but overall a nice shot.

It's a pretty good shot.

You want it to look better - fake it!

A little bit of a deep blue, Africa, but adding some color to the water is a good idea.
Nice picture.
