Jake, It almost looks like you're photographing toward the shore? Like the frame. Maybe bring down the highlights on the body just a tad?

Hi Gene:  Glad you are back - I missed seeing LSR stuff!!  Actually the background is a new beach that formed offshore after a big blow last year.  So, we have the beach, then a fairly large body of water and then another beach.  Lots and lots of bait so the shorebirds are sticking around.  Like me, if there is something to eat, I'll be there.

Beautiful, close-in view of the Skimmer, Jake. Agree on lowering the brightness of the body.
