[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today's shot is a Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis), Kuhreiher, Arabic name: Abu Qerdan أبوقردان
a species of heron which I captured in Egypt.

I liked the moment to see this guy wading in the shallow water with a pretty light from behind.

Thanks for looking and any words.

Hello Sabine,
We are neighbours today!
A great way to use a busy BG with the lighting, pose of the cattle Egret in the water and the ripple he created when he fished something out. The lighting on the ripples, the composition and sharpness are all great and make this a fine image.
Thanks for this delight,
Best regards,
Ivan

Hello Sabine,
This is Very well exposed, with excellent sharpness, detail, DOF and colors, nice POV. Very well done!

Hallo Sabine,
this is really very pretty bird, with orange bill and white plumage. In breeding season, it is more beautiful with some orange feathers on its head. You captured it from Egypt with a great shot. Sharp details, exposure, reflection and coloration very nice. Danke. gutten nicht.

Hello Sabine,

You have made a very nice photo of this egret. The bird is sharply shown with good details of the plumage. I like the refelxion of the bird on the water surface. The fine light comming from behind the bird and being reflected by the water surface looks great. The concentric water waves add great value to the image.

Thankl you for sharing,
Cristian

Hallo Sabine,

es ist Dir hier schlicht ein Meisterwerk gelungen, Sabine, die Komposition ist einmalig. Ich brauche die Vorzüge des Reiherportraits gar nicht aufzuzählen, es ist sofort klar, dass alle technischen Details stimmen. Mein ernstes Komplment für das herrliche Bild.

Ich sende Dir meine besten Wünsche zum neuen Jahr

Hello Sabine

This is a sharply focused and well detailed image of this cattle egret.
The reflections in the water are lovely and the concentric ripples add an interesting accent.
Very good POV.
I agree the light from the top corner has created beautiful colours upon the water.

Hi Sabine,

A delightful capture of this Egret having his drink of water. I love the droplets coming from his beak and the circle in the water. The ray of light is just wonderful. Beautiful whites of his face and feathers. Details are nice and sharp. A lovely setting and composition.

hallo Sabine
Das grüne Licht ist ein Highlight in diesem Bild, es ist das was am meisten auffällt wenn man es in der galerie sieht, aber wenn man es dann öffnet sieht man nur noch die schöne Egret,
sie ist so scharf und das Weiss ihrer Federen ist einfach fantastish

Hello Sabine!

Exotic and very beautifull bird. Good pose and moment. Colorfull water with reflections of plants and sky looks superb.

hello Sabine!
great light in this capture with this egret
that while eating ,creates concentric ripples on the surface of the water
well composed
best sERGIO

Hi Sabine,
The light and its reflection is very pretty. I like the secluded feel this photo has. It feels as if you were there all alone with the bird with nobody to see or hear. The details are wonderful and the colors very beautiful.

Hi Sabine.
What a delicate reproduction of the beautiful bird, its splendid plumage and elegant pose. Scenery is very natural and attractive but colouration of the water surface is simply amazing. Bravo. Great picture by subject and by quality. My compliments.

Amazing composition! The light is magical and all the details are sharp. The reflection is beyond words! Thanks for sharing.

This is quite a beautiful image Sabine. There are so many nice elements. First the light is gorgeous as are the colors. I love the pose of the egret and its reflection. The water rings are great too. I did do a workshop to make a subtle change. I think the upper left corner, though beautiful, is very bright. The egret is just a tad underexposed (grayish) and I actually didn't notice the water rings right away. I tried to give the egret and the water rings the starring role... so to speak. At least it works on my monitor and I have no idea how it looks to anyone else! : )

Hello Sabine,

this is a superb image of the Cattle Egret, shot with
a very fine POV, DOF and framing, beautiful luminosity,
excellent sharpness and details, not only the spirals
in the water, but i also love the reflection of all the body
of the bird on the water also that beautiful light
coming from the left side of the background, TFS

Hi Sabine,
really a veery artistic shot. Im really astonished by the effect created by the ripples. The clean egret really give a good contrast to the dark water.
Excellent presentation, i love to see the sharpness all over and the natural surroundings of the still water.

Regards,
Foozi
