This is a little bird that I've found in a lake near my home.
Critics and all opinions are wellcome.

Davide,

Like the bird. Only thing I might suggest is maybe there is too much space above and below the subject. Maybe try cropping about 1/2 above and below the bird and see how the image looks.

Davide, welcome to Steve's. I agree with JJ on the crop. I'm just not sure how he would have done it, so I went ahead and cropped it and did a couple more simple things, like lighting up the bird a little. Hope you don't mind, if so I can remove it. Good shot, by the way!

I'm very happy for your reply, this is a crop and I'd try to crop more but the image was not too defined, Robert I'm happy when someone try to improve one of my shots, I can learn to do better.
Thaks to both for your reply and I'm glad you like this image.
