Flipping the direction and changing the orientation to a landscape allows the viewer to appreciate the posture and reflection of this bird.   Posted: 04/10/2021 20:26:46

Walter, what an AMAZING image. The colors and patterns in the water are exquisite. My only suggestion would be adding a very slight vignette.   Posted: 04/11/2021 15:50:52

Nice photo, Walter. The colors are really nice and a great contrast to the Egret. I am not sure if it is my eyes or the photo that is slightly out of focus because there is no feather detail in the bird. That's usually a bi-product of noise reduction in LR. Still, a great capture.   Posted: 04/15/2021 11:48:02

Thanks for the suggestion.

In use lightroom noise reduction that is good at not removing detail. Perhaps the light from the camera direction minimized detail.   Posted: 04/15/2021 13:02:04

Another nice image of Egret. I liked the posture of the bird. Flipping and cropping look good to me. The surrounding is a little bright. What about buring it down? I miss the normal sharpness of your images here.   Posted: 04/20/2021 13:32:50
