A dynamic action shot with good light, composition and moment - nice work.
The detail's a bit soft and warrants diagnosis. Improvement may be possible by another shot in post.

Beautiful action shot and great light as Ziggy said. If this is a crop, one suggestion would be to give a bit more room all around the bird, especially to include more of the reflection, as it looks a bit cramped. The water does not look level to me. It’s a really cool shot!

Yeah, I think I cropped too much to make the fish eye visible. You are right, the water needs to be leveled . Thx

I wondered about the fish eye. It’s a balancing act between the points of interest. I like to make a duplicate version with a different crop and let them rest a while, come back and revisit to see which has the best feel. I would love to see what you come up with, if you’d like to share.
