    Bravo! Beautiful photo. You will find a viewfinder makes things greatly easier, but from what you've already achieved I'd say no rush!

    My suggested tweaks of values.

    Wow! That's amazing. Where are you to have large water fowl in the foothills?
    The composition is fabulous, but the contrast between mid-range grays and white values is weak.

    Other than 135mm, what lens is it?https://www.mu-43.com/gallery
    -Chrome

    Here is my tweak of the levels in Photoshop to pop a bit more life into your composition. Input levels are 0 - 0.74 (from 1.00) -236 from (255). I didn't push it very far. If I had time I would then dodge the line of trees to restore their detail. This example is=s just a reference starting point.

    Let me know if you wish me to delete it.

    Crdome- that does lend more weight to the image, very nice.

    I live a little south of Bozeman, Montana. I believe those are SandhillCranes, we've been seeing quite a few pairs of them around lately.

    This is the lens i used for this shot https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7265/7071402965_73d1edbccd_c.jpg

    For this shot i got lucky as most of my other shots with it that day weren't very usable.

    Thanks guys!
