[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot of Cattle Egret in Kuala Lumpur. It was half an hour before sunset when i sighted this bird sitting calmly on a man-made perch. I took 3 shots changing POVs slightly in order to avoid strong directional light.

Quality of my subject isn't great with a little grainy experience. I think i should have tried few shots with a lower ISO in order to suppress the noise.

Thanks for viewing,
Best Regards...AKBAR

I don't think it is noisy at all.
Over all this is a lovely presentation.
You have not "OVER-CROPPED" this one as with your butterflies.
Best regards,

Hello Akbar,

Hope you are well and your stay in Malaysia was good.I do not know whether you are back or not but this visit of yours was fruitful when it comes to photography. I do also apologize that I was neither able to respond to your Eid e-mail nor was I able to comment on your wondrous photographs.
I agree with Mario that this fine fine photo of yours has no flaws at all. The angle is right and the bird has been caught in its typical posture with quite skill.So a superb shot in every way. Keep them coming on, bro, and thanks for sharing,take care,

Warm regards/Abid

Hello neighbour Akbar,
The only thing I see is a very beautiful egret in splendid light and very beautiful colours against a beautiful dark contrasting background, without any noise. Excellent sharpness, details and composition.

Hi Akbar.
Downsizing eliminates the noise perfectly. Shared shot is clean and nice. I like excellent exposure and precise reproduction of the bird plumage. Main subject is isolated (by sunlight and blurriness of the surroundings) from BG greatly. Excellent job. TFS.

Hello Akbar,
Very nice image. Fantastic capture with outstanding contrast. The composition, the clarity and exposure are very good. I like this amazing bird.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Akbar. A real treat of a shot. A beautiful bird in all his glory. He looks half chicken and half rooster. I can't find a thing wrong with the shot. More light in the background is the only thing you could have hoped for, but that wasn't possible. So... It's a perfect shot. Well done. TFS Trevor

Hi Akbar-I haven't seen such "Beautifully Captured Eye"of a Egret here in TN.Majestic pose...splendid light and prominent(To Me)sharpness.Thanks for sharing.Regards and Good Night-Srikumar
