Great shot Beautifully composed, and perfectly timed. I would like more contrast. I would love to know how the picture was made.   Posted: 06/14/2021 15:00:17

I love the clarity of your image. You have caught the heron and
water droplets perfectly. Like Albert I would really like to hear how you took this.   Posted: 06/14/2021 17:18:49

I think that it is perfect, too! The blurred background shows off the heron and the water droplets, and also his environment beautifully.   Posted: 06/15/2021 15:28:22

Thanks for your very kind comments, this was from a 24 hour hide shoot, the species were Herons, Kingfishers, Otters and a Tawny owl, I have used this hide before it is very well thought out with the lens about 2ft above the water, this was taken very early morning I used Nik Silver effects and levels layers.   Posted: 06/16/2021 15:17:17

A really nice portrait of a Heron. The water droplets do add another dimension to the image as I see it. Your processing, to my eye, worked very well to bring out the delicate detail of the plumage of the Heron. I also like how clear and sharp the eye of the bird is.

I like your use of depth of field. It focuses me on the bird instead of causing my eye to wander all over the image.

I have no suggestions for improvement - it was (to me) an excellently turned out image. Thank you very much for sharing it with us Colin.   Posted: 06/22/2021 19:27:26

This is a lovely image Colin and perfect in mono. This concentrates the viewer's attention on the wonderful feather detail and it's eye. Wonderful.   Posted: 06/23/2021 12:48:52
