Lu Lu - how much did you crop the image? The birds are very out of focus (soft) and should be sharp. Exposure is also off - the shadows being too dark. I hope you are shooting in RAW?

The lack of sharpness might indeed be the result of cropping too much.

Elsa,
This looks to me like too much contrast rather than underexposure. Lu Lu, did you apply Photoshop's AutoLevels? or perhaps in your raw converter maybe you used the "Vivid" setting which really jacks up contrast?

I did the underexpoed to remove reflection of water. and i adjust with Light Room without experiment :D
Thank you for comments :)
