Lovely light and low angle. The small, foaming waves and oyster in the beak really make this a very nice image.

An " all-round" great image, Axel. The foamy water and the bubbles at the sand, certainly contribute to making this a special image.

Great lighting- I like the way it is emerging from the surf, holding it's prize, with lifted foot.

A beautiful capture of this happy oystercatcher with its prize, Axel! The surf adds a lot to the scene. Well done.

Exposure looks perfect. Just might take a little off dark sand in the bottom of the image.
