A fine composition of these majestic birds. They are nicely spread out to produce a pleasing well balanced image. The birds stand out well from their background. Season's Greetings!

The branches are framing well the birds. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cormorants. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
