[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This morning when we went out for a ride along the channels nearby, nearly all of the water was frozen and the birds hardly moved away even if we stopped close to them; so I could take this nice portrait of the Western Great Egret (Ardea alba). Never been so close yet!
-Thank You, Angelo, to have stopped in the right moment!!

Hello Ursula,
Great photo in very beautiful colours and white balance. Fantastic sharpness, details and a good choice of composition.

Hello Ursula,
Very nice photo, good sharpness and POV
Congratulations and thanks for sharing
Hello Vanni

Hellow Ursula,

Beautiful pose. A beautifully captured image looks a little "gloomy", so I did a workshop. Hope you like the results. Thought your crop was a little too tight, but only you know what was outside the presented area. Great focus. TFS.

Best regards,


Ciao Ursula, lovely great egret in nice pose, excellent sharpness, fine details, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week, ciao Silvio

Liebe Ursula,
Freut mich wieder ein Bild von Dir zu sehen. Wie ein Engel Dein Silberreiher! Du hast die kalte Winer-Atmosphäre gut widergeben mit den feinen kühlen Farben. Auch ist die Bildschärfe gut. Ein wenig mehr Kontrast hätte es vielleicht ertragen.
Herzlich grüsst

Ciao Ursula,
l'immagine è molto bella e nitida; ottimo il punto di vista e buona la gestione dei colori; eccellente il dettaglio del piumaggio e splendido l'occhio. Complimenti!
Un saluto
