Sandstorm by mydigitalmind Sandstorm by mydigitalmind
This Oystercatcher and its mate were very cooperative. It was very windy and the sand was blowing around, especially close to the ground. I did not notice that I captured it until I reviewed this photo on my laptop.

The blowing sand does detract a little, but overall it's a very sharp image with a nice background!

Oohh.. so you think it would be better without the sand? I do have a few shots without it too. :)

I'm not 100% sure. The sand immediately drew my eye, which I think is a bad thing, but an argument could be made that it also adds a non-typical element to the setting that might make the image more distinctive. You could try softening it a little and see how that works.
