    Thanks very much for all the nice comments. I have been fortunate to be able to travel to some extraordinary places that help get the photography juices flowing.

    ExcellentÖ in focus with nice definition in the feathers, replacing the background with black looks good.

    great shot, nice detail etc., that one eye makes the booby look very devious.

    This is beautiful in so many ways - lovely composition, great detail, and the perfect background to bring the limited colour palette to life.

    I love this beautiful bird portrait. I love the detail, the light, the gracefully curved pose and it all stands out beautifully against the dark background. My number 1 pick.

    Jade-I looked at the original and the shots surrounding it in time. The background was in deep shadow, and the foreground in bright sun. I underexposed slightly to prevent washing out the whites. I did darken the background slightly pp, but it was most of the way there already.

    A toss up for me as to whether this should be no. 1 but it is a really pretty shot. I'd like to know how you did the black background.

    Beautiful details and the dark background really makes the subject stand out. Great pose too.
