CommentOne of the challenges in this competition is to find something a bit different from all the other portraits. In this portrait I managed to capture a slightly different pose with the head pointed down vertically, which gives some pleasing curves of colours which draw one's eye across the back of the neck, towards the brownish shoulder and scalloped breast. The wet chin and the scattering of tiny drops of water in the feathers are an added bonus.
EquipmentCanon 90D; Canon EF 100-400 L Mk II zoom. 400mm, ISO 1600, 1/500s, f/5.6. Shot through a glass window. Raw file processed in DxO Photolab 3.3.
