The Great White Egret is a worthy subject and this image presents a nature story. It is difficult to be sure with such a small image, but you may want to sharpen the Egret's eye a bit. Try the radial filter in LR and move the contrast, clarity and sharpness sliders a little to the right. Also, you might try adding a slight dark vignette to draw teh viewer's eye right to the the subject.   Posted: 03/14/2020 12:24:35

It is a nice action shot. On my screen, the feathers are not sharp. That is very difficult to do on a white subject. Also, centering the subject is not the best choice. My preference would be to place the eye in the left "third" of the composition and leave some negative space on the right in the direction the bird is facing.   Posted: 03/15/2020 16:26:37

Nice shot - in the habitat and an active behavior. Some more space to the right desirable. Also at the beak the green leaf looks partially edited(not sure if it is).   Posted: 03/15/2020 19:12:42

Good picture, taken at the right moment where there is a frog in the beak, I would like the bird not centered in the picture, so there is more room for the bird than behind.   Posted: 03/22/2020 08:37:00
