It's my first nature photo to be presented here on forum and it's definitely not my main scope of interest. It was one of best days in my photographic adventure.

I wish I could take a photo like this one! Unfortunately I don't live anywhere near a suitable place. Great shot! It reminded me of a haiku by Matsuo Bashou:

it is the full moon!
the crane's lower legs are tall
on far tidal flats

meigetsu ya tsuru hagi takaki too higata

名月や
鶴脛高き
遠干潟

He was describing how the Cranes' legs looked longer, reflected on the water in the moonlight.

Fantastic! So many things to love about this. The 'layers' as you move down the frame- sky, clouds, trees, cranes, reflected cranes, water. The slight but perceptible change in atmospheric perspective from the closest to the furthest cranes. The serene tones. The horizontal repetition of the cranes (most of them have one eye one you). The uniform placement of debris on the water...all captured excellently in tricky lighting conditions.

This would probably look fantastic printed big on canvas and hung in a peaceful room.

Indeed! Is this going to be a limited edition, or are you going to print it for as many people as you can? It's that good.

Thank you all for a nice feedback, it was truly magnificent sunrise and my first so intense contact with nature. I'm still waiting with printing it, but it will come for sure.
Don't want to exploit this on and on, but one more photo can be surely presented, this time in b&w:
