    Default Wall of water

    Created this image at Ranganaththittu last month. I would have liked a bit more space to the right, but didn't get time to recompose .

    Canon 50D, 100-400mm L IS USM, ISO 200, 1/500, f5.6, hand held

    I dont mind the central composition. I like the inclusion of the rock on the left. The water patterns look good. Reminds me of a silly joke where you should keep your mouth shut when you got water in it else it will spill (Ref: Open Bill )
    The bright spot just above the head is a bit distracting. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely image. I like the timing. Water droplets give a nice feel. One may say that a slightly lower angle perhaps would have ensured that the white patch would have been behind the head. However, the spoonbill dips its head and raises it in an arc. So I don't think, one can avoid the bright white patches in the background. May be if you were clicking the same scene with a 500 f4, then the background would have been a bit more blurred.

    Cheers,

    Lovely action captured Mrudul, I don't think its Spoon Bill but a Open Bill Stork.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    Praveen, I have mentioned in the tags as Open Bill Stork. I think Sabyasachi commented in a hurry mentioning it as Spoon Bill . Thanks for pointing out.

    Praveen,

    Ha ha ha. This is a sure shot case of brain failure. Or you can say brain went to sleep.

    I was thinking how come Mrudul can make such an elementary school mistake of calling Openbill as Spoonbill. And now realised that it was me.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
