About the Image(s)

Sony A1
Sony 700-200 with 2x teleconverter
ISO 1000

Image was slightly cropped and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

I found the “white on white” characteristic of this photo different and intriguing.

Love the high key and the wing position. White birds are difficult to expose, particularly in flight. I feel that certain areas from the back wing may lack a bit of detail, and perhaps trying to tone down a bit those highlights may improve it. But overall it is a great shot.   Posted: 06/10/2022 10:42:53

Okay, I'm officially envious-hand held, no doubt! Great "bird in flight" photo.   Posted: 06/10/2022 11:33:50

Snowy Egret with big fish...what luck, and to catch it flying home with its catch. Back wing a bit blown, but hard not to. Agree, the high key presentation is interesting.

Nothing additional to add. I love high key and how this fits this photo. You do well with hand held.   Posted: 06/11/2022 16:00:57

Hi Peter, Beautiful photo! You have captured all the action there can be, a catch and the flight! I agree with others that the whites are slightly over blown but other than that excellent shot.   Posted: 06/13/2022 12:49:16

Beautiful photo, love the high key, Snowy Egret in flight with a fish in its mouth, and nice and sharp. I find that I really do like to occasionally like to show a white bird in a high key photo. It really works sometimes. This is one of them ! Great image and action!   Posted: 06/18/2022 20:13:56
