Hello Luciano,
I really like this close up image of the Great Egret, especially with the darker BG. All white plumage like this will normally drive me up the wall, since they are so easily overexposed. You did very well in this instance as the texture of its plumage is quite visible. Wonderful eye contact and beautiful natural color tones.

Salut Luciano,
très belle prise de ce héron dans une atmosphère très naturelle. Pas facile ces oiseaux blanc!

Bonsoir Luciano,

La végétation aide au cadrage de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Grande Aigrette. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Hello Luciano,
Beautiful and well detailed picture of this Great Egret. Exposure looks nice and semi dark BG helps to concentrate on the bird here. Like perfect framing too.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hello Luciano

Beautiful photo of the Great Egret, fine POV and appropriate
vertical framing, excellent focus, sharpness, details, and contrast, TFS


Ciao Luciano, gran bell'airone, perfetta la resa del bianco, si vedono i dettagli di tutte le piume, splendida foto, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
