A cloudy day with excess luminosity for such a dark species. I had to increase the exposure to properly illuminate the bird, however the water was overexposed, but the result obtained in the first photograph encouraged me with this technique the rest of this day in the Marismas del Odiel (Huelva, Spain) in order to obtain this high key series of a singular specie
A hidrohide was used in order to obtain images at water level

Canon EOS 50D Canon 100-400 at 400mm (f8; 1/400; ISO 250) and hidrohide

As always all comments are welcome!!!!

PS. Thanks to the Consejeria de Medio Ambiente de la Junta de Andalucia for the necessary permits

Very nice high-key technique – love the red eye of the Grebe.

I like it, different look at this grebe.
Maybe a tad too much negative space but a very nice high key almost abstract.

Interesting approach- quite artistic. I'd get rid of the upper left blue corner. Sometimes a small black border around this kind of photo helps to define the space.
