A nice shot with the bird against the sky. Maybe blur as Leonid suggests, but in addition, I'd like the dark vegetation to be a little lighter.   Posted: 11/06/2021 15:35:13

Great capture! I don't know if you need to blur the bottom of the picture. I think the contrast of the darker bush at the bottom with bright sky behind the white egret naturally has you focus on the egret. I don't really pay much attention to the bottom of the bush.   Posted: 11/09/2021 08:52:50

Thanks for the suggestions. Left the bush as is as it is on the same vertical plane as the main subject. Thanks again.   Posted: 11/10/2021 09:45:23

Well done Tom. The contrast with the sky and the green foliage is very effective. My only suggestion would be to try and lighten the side of the egrets face to expose the eye which is currently hidden by the shade.   Posted: 11/12/2021 08:37:02

Beautiful position of the egret with wings spread, and including its environment. I would remove the blurred post(?) that sticks above the greenery on the left side of the image. I would also remove 1/3 of the bottom of the image as it feels to heavy to me.   Posted: 11/12/2021 14:40:50
