Going through some old files and found this one. He had just finished shaking off after a dip in our pond. Nikon D1H, 600 F4, and TC14E. This was one of my first shots with the 600 so please be kind         Kevin

 Thanks Christian, I probably should have cropped out a bit more of the right hand side as well. Maybe this is one where the subject looks OK in the center of the frame

Haha, you dont need to shout!  Yes, maybe cut off a bit from the right side, but I was more thinking about slightly too less space above the head. One more thing, if I look a little bit longer at it, the shape in the background is not so in harmony with the bird. But these are tiny issues, overall the picture works!

Actually, if you could make that green thing the same color as what surrounds it, that would be the perfect fix.

Yes that is what I was thinking, try to eliminate the green, out-of-focus, leaf or foliage. It is very prominent and distracts from an otherwise nice shot.
