CommentThe dark, moody atmosphere and the adoring pose of both subjects was the first thing that attracted me to this image. I am also drawn to the stark contrast of the orange facial skin of the chick and pure white bill of the adult, which is set against the black background. Finally, I liked the sharp details in this image, including the water droplets on the adult's head and the subtle reflections of both birds in the water.
