Beautiful shot! I like the details of the background very much! Most of the cases the bird photos are having blurred background, but in this case it really supports the subject.   Posted: 06/13/2022 09:07:01

Great photo. I like that the details of the white feathers can be seen. Often this is not the case with white birds. Even though the sky is gray, the bird still stands out from the background. I like that the bird fills the frame. A suggestion would be to clone out the highlight areas above the bird's body towards the top of the frame.   Posted: 06/13/2022 10:56:29

Thank you for the suggestion. Now that you mentioned these highlights I see them clearly - so helpful to get an advise from another photographer!!!   Posted: 06/13/2022 11:51:59

Loved the image. The egret's eyes are nice and sharp, and so are the white feathers.
The background has contrasting shades above and below the bird - I loved that. The frame is well captured.
Surprised, however, by how sharp the background is, given the bird is closer(I think) to the lens and it is shot at f/5.6. I would have expected clouds to be dark/greyish but less sharp.
Great one Marina!   Posted: 06/13/2022 20:37:52
