A beautifully timed and executed image and I like the crop/framing. Just the right amount of context to tell the story.   Posted: 06/06/2020 16:45:06

You have captured an exquisite moment in time. Crop and depth of field are great. This bird has just left the perch and you caught it!   Posted: 06/06/2020 19:07:15

agree. The photo is great. How did you get this timing. One suggestion for crop. Why pull in unnecessary stuff ?   Posted: 06/12/2020 18:06:06

Captured at the perfect moment--great timing. Your exposure is right on and shows all the texture in the feathers and detail in the egret. I also like how the background is nice and creamy and sets off the bird. I do like Harley's crop suggestion. This is very nice as a square format and it helps eliminate some of the grey area on the right.   Posted: 06/12/2020 20:30:46

They are a magnificent bird and you have captured it well. I don't agree with Bruce and Harley about the square crop. For the size of the bird , you need space to fly into and the grey looks like a shadow of another bird. The background is lovely.   Posted: 06/12/2020 21:48:22

I agree. I do like to give the bird a little room to fly into.   Posted: 06/25/2020 11:59:05

excellent moment. well I will agree with Lane and ask for more space in the photo to 16*9 to allow you keeping the bird in the rule of 3rd and to add more sharpness to it. this kind of crop and zoom made some losses to the shaprnes   Posted: 06/17/2020 10:31:26
