As we walked along the Dump Marsh there were a number of White Ibis wading through the shallow water but one of them had found a small mound of dirt to perch on. From my vantage point there was a great reflection of the bird so I took a number of shots (because I like reflection shots). Back home I selected what I thought was the best image but I was flummoxed as to how to frame the image. This is the image using a Landscape orientation.
Sometimes you have to make do. This is a tough one; if it were me, I would straighten the bird (he is leaning to the L) and allow the reflection to to be tilted.
this would be my choice because it allows more space to breathe around the bird (I’m a little claustrophobic by nature). I would probably also shift the subject slightly to the left of center (rule of thirds) for a little more dynamic composition.
