Nice capture Pieter of this crowed scene. If It were mine I would be tempted to add a little warm tone, I think the compo here is fine, good work.

Hi Pieter, it doesn't need to be a stunning picture.
Your picture gives a very important information of a cormarant breeding site. I've never saw such a seen. I love it very much.
Thank you for sharing.

Nice shot Pieter,
Well composed, it does seem to be a very busy City!
The one on top of the tree looks like he's giving his leaders speech!
Thanks for posting

Pieter, I do think it's a very nice photo.
I think these birds are very beautiful, and you did great here.
There's a place here in my town where they can be found, but my lens is not good enough to capture them like I would like to.

Very nice shot Pieter!
I liked the composition very much.DOF and details are also perfect.Thanks for sharing.
Well, it's maybe not stunning, but still good enough. It gives the idea of how the colony looks like.
In Poland Cormorants were under protection and they still are, but now there is so much of them here, that they are a kind of pest. Fishermans have planty problems with them, cause the make big damages in their fish ponds. Now there is "war" here between "nature lovers" and fishermans.
It is very interesting post.
Thanks for sharing.

Wow, your not wrong. So many Cormorants and not enough trees! Very interesting capture. I've never seen so many in one place. Your POV is fantastic. Well done on bringing us this mini city. Thanks

Hello Pieter! What a busy little city. They look like they are lining up waiting for their turn on the tree. It is quite comical! I was thinking about the smell and noise when I came to your last paragraph - yes, it must be 'high' at times. This is a great interest shot, and I'm pleased you posted it.
Thanks for sharing.

Belle et int廨essante composition photographique pour ces cormorans sur les nids. Il est int廨essant de voir leur habitat.
Very Well Done !

A stunning capture, incredibly informative. I never realised they nested in such huge numbers.
Luckily we can only 'see' them, I'm glad we can't smell them too ....
Thanks for posting.

It is good to show this perspective. Quite a large colony. Excellent Job!

The city of Cormorant. Eventually, as you are finding out, whatever is in that lake, will be depleted. Believe me. The smell, hahaha, yep, O, what about the poop, and yes, those trees, dying yet, they will.
I wonder how long before people will tolerate these pests.?
O.k. now about the posting, it's not that bad, it shows the colony and how many there are, I would keep this on file for future evidence. Ooops, off track. The camera picked their details from far off, well done.

Personal assessment of the photo: great.
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: great.
Thank you very much Pieter. Fisrt time I see this. Very interesting photo.
You're right, it's not stunning, but it is eye-catching. I think I might have experimented with a more close-up composition of the 3 branches and the horizon, maybe a portrait picture instead of landscape. Obviously you wanted to capture the other cormorants in the photo but the centre is the most interesting and that's what you should concentrate on. I'd try a workshop but the image would be too small.

To me, that is a stunning photo, Pieter. I can't believe how many cormorants you have captured in that one shot, and all those nests are fantastic. That is a very special photo that is a great picture of a very special habitat. You are so lucky to live so close to it. TFS. : )

I have missed this one, until today, Pieter.
A treasure to be sure, how wonderful that these birds are so well established and so many for you to capture. And you have done so quite beautifully in this shot.
Excellent job, thank you for sharing it.
