    Here is a picture I captured of a mudlark or peewee on the Ballarat Prisoner of War Memorial. I just like the way its tail is reflected in the highly polished stone.

    The image seems to lack a clear goal.
    If the bird was a dove; the goal might be to comment on the reason for war.

    However, the bird seems to be your primary focus here, the reason you took the photo. I think you needed to get in closer and use a larger aperture.
    Furthermore, the photo seems to have some high ISO noise (or it could be the compression, which isn't your fault).

    Thanks for your comment. If I chose the species I would of prefered a hawk or eagle, but I just like reflection on the polished stone at the time.
    The Light was rather low so I had to choose a high ISO rating but I also
    had to compress it drastically to fit on the screen
    This is how big it was at first. Just enough to fit its feet in
