I hope this comment is received as constructive for I like the attitude and spirit that your work reflects. So many of your postings demonstrate excellent camera technique. I do find some softness in many of the images which is more reflective of the equipment then your skill set. This is one of my favorite images and I feel had much potential. It has dynamic potential and is well composed. Unfortunately, having to crop so extensively surely contributed to the slight softness. What, for me, is really missing here, to make this an outstanding photo, is a less serious handling of contrast and structure in post which took away from the dynamic potential. The power and force of such a large bird launching itself from water is supposed to be sharply detailed and contrasty. Such may be difficult to capture in camera with the level of equipment you have but achievable with a stronger post processing hand. I know you have the software and would suggest the addition of Topaz Detail.

Looking forward to more great shots to come.
